CNN reportedly spotted Dennis Rodman at Beijing International Airport, although he declined to speak to the media outlet which adds that "it's unclear what the purpose of Rodman's visit to the secretive country could be, but the eccentric former basketball player - and a former contestant on Donald Trump's pre-presidency reality TV show "Celebrity Apprentice" - is one of the only Americans to have met current North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un."
North Korean officials confirmed to CNN that Rodman is expected to arrive in Pyongyang Tuesday without giving further details. Curiously, a senior US official said the State Department was aware Rodman was planning to travel to North Korea, but stressed he is not there in any official capacity.
