*If you all of a sudden realized you hadn’t heard about DMX actin’ a fool or getting arrested … or both, today’s your lucky day.
Yep, that’s right the troubled rapper is back in the pokey. This time it’s for failure to make child support payments, according to the NY Daily News.
The cops put the clamps on X right before his scheduled appearance at Radio City Music Hall just before midnight Friday evening. The news site’s report says concert goers of the “Masters of Ceremony” concert event spotted the X-man being taken into custody as soon as he stepped out his car. Witnesses took to social media and also claimed cops’ guns were drawn.
In case you’re wondering, the other MCs on the show included Ma$e , The Lox and Shabba Ranks.
In total, DMX has fathered a dozen children with several women. and not too surprisingly, he’s been accused of ignoring child support payments. After a failed attempt to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy for his problems with child support, a judge ordered him to pay $15,000 a month to his ex-wife and mother of his four children, Tashera Simmons.
As we alluded to at the top, this isn’t the rapper’s first blush with the law. He has been arrested several times for drug possession, animal cruelty and reckless driving, among other things.
