Dennis Rodman Returns To North Korea

The former basketball star has travelled to North Korea for a secret project. 

TMZ reports that Dennis Rodman arrived in Pyongyang on June 13, 2017. Staying for a reported four nights, he's allegedly working on "something that's pretty positive" that will "open the door" to the ruling government. No word yet on if Rodman will meet with North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong-Un.

According to Rodman's Twitter page, he's been flown to North Korea on a trip sponsored by PotCoin—a digital cryptocurrency used for exchange in the legal marijuana industry. While a video, uploaded on YouTube and shared on Twitter, addresses Rodman's "unique relationship" with both Jong-Un and President Donald Trump (Rodman appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice), NPR reports that it's unlikely that the former Chicago Bulls player will be serving as a liaison of any official capacity.

"Though Rodman appeared on Trump's reality show and endorsed him for president," NPR reporter Rob Schmitz stated, "analysts don't think he is acting as a back channel conduit between the two countries."

Rodman, 56, previously traveled to North Korea to celebrate Jong-Un's birthday in 2014, going so far as to play a game of basketball with him.

"I'll discuss my mission when I return," Rodman has promised.

Guess we'll just have to wait to find out more about Rodman's controversial visit to the country until he gets back.
