Dennis Rodman reportedly heading to Singapore

Posted: Updated:

WSIL-TV - Former Chicago Bulls forward, Dennis Rodman will reportedly be in Singapore when his friend, North Korean dictator, Kim Jung Un, meets with President Donald Trump next week.

The former NBA player will arrive in the country a day before the June 12 summit, and sources claim he may take part in the negotiations.

Rodman has visited Kim five times, and has in the past claimed he helped to get the two leaders together.

Trump and Kim will meet at a luxury resort on Sentosa Island for nuclear talks next week in Singapore, the White House said Tuesday. The historic meeting will be held at the Capella Hotel, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted.

"We thank our great Singaporean hosts for their hospitality," Sanders said. Trump and Kim's highly anticipated meeting is scheduled for June 12 at 9 a.m. Singapore time (8 p.m. on June 11 our time).

Trump hopes to secure a nuclear deal with the North Koreans, seeking for Kim to give up his nuclear program, though he stressed last week that the process would likely take longer than a single meeting.
