Dennis Rodman to meet his 'old friend' Kim Jong Un

Rodman refused to answer questions about his trip when spotted at the Beijing airport on Monday, however, officials from North Korea confirmed his travel plans to CNN.

Japanese newspaper speculates that Kim could have been paid by U.S. intelligence agency for providing information Kim Jong-nam, half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was carrying US$120,000 in cash when he was killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia in February, Japanese newspaper the Asahi Shimbun reported. CNN reported Rodman was in Beijing, his expected departure point for a flight to the North Korean capital.

It was supposedly a birthday gift for Kim who's said to be a big basketball fan.

Mr Rodman, who revealed he was asked to coach North Korea's Olympic team, said the North Korea leader "trusts him" and lets him hold his baby daughter.

And in April 2013 Trump called Rodman "smart" for his then trip to North Korea.

The brother of the leader of North Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong UN Kim Jong-Nam could get the money from the intelligence of the United States of America (USA).

His last visit came in January 2014, when Rodman and a group of other former NBA players took part in an exhibition basketball game.

"To me he is just a normal guy".

But he recalled how Kim said if Rodman did something for him, he could do something for Rodman. Dennis Rodman, of all people.

On his first trip to North Korea, Rodman was accompanied by members of the Harlem Globetrotters and a crew from VICE News. I hope you are doing well!

"And he was going to promise me that he was going to give me Kenneth Bae", Rodman also said, referring to a former USA national imprisoned in the DPRK.
