*DMX was sentenced to six months in jail on Tuesday – this time for owing $400,000 dollars in child support, reports Billboard.

The rapper, 44, was arrested last month in New York City just as he was about to perform at the Master of Ceremony concert at Radio City Music Hall.

A spokesman for the New York City Sheriff’s Department said that in addition to owing the $400,000, he also had a warrant issued by the city of White Plains for bail jumping and a robbery complaint out of Newark, New Jersey at the time of his arrest. (Charges were not filed in the Newark case.)

DMX was supposed to perform at Shaggfest 2015 in Virginia Beach, Va., on July 25. Shaggy took to Twitter to break the bad news to his followers:

  1. This doesn’t make any sense. Granted, he didn’t pay his child support on time like he was supposed to. But if he goes to jail, he’ll owe MORE money in child support because of not being able to fulfill his obligations. What a mess!

  2. I agree with NYC locking him up now he can’t pay anything for 6 months in jail on taxpayers money court need 2 find a way 2 simplify the child support system besides putting a man in jail because that does not solve the issue it makes it worse.
