DMX Charged With Major Tax Evasion — But He's Not The Only Celeb To Face The Wrath Of The IRS!

| Filed under: Legal MattersDMXTax Troubs

UPDATE 6:47 P.M. EST: DMX has been released from jail on Friday after posting $500,000 bond (an amount he needed two co-signers for). According to TMZ, the rapper has pleaded not guilty to all 14 counts of tax evasion. A judge has also issued travel restrictions, prohibiting him from leaving the NYC area. Stay tuned…


DMX turned himself in to the feds Thursday evening after getting hit with 14 counts of tax evasion.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the rapper could face could face up to 44 years in prison for hiding his income over several years and owning the IRS about $1.7 million!

According to the indictment, the 46-year-old didn't file taxes for ANY of the millions he made from his chart topping songs, performances and TV show appearances over the years.

The docs say DMX, real name Earl Simmons, went out of his way to evade taxes, including avoiding personal bank accounts, setting up surrogate accounts, and paying large expenses in cash.

Simmons even allegedly refused to tape his Celebrity Couples Therapy appearance in order to rip off the IRS what was owed. After the proper taxes had been withheld in the initial check, X demanded that producers issue him a new check for the full amount of $125,000 — which he got!

But it looks like he'll finally have to pay up — just like these other celebs who have dealt with tax troubles.

We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of concern and support that has poured in. We ask that you please keep X in your prayers as he embraces your support."

Puff Daddy recently announced that he will retire from music after one last "victory lap" by going on a world tour and dropping a final album.

And as evidenced by his epic TODAY show concert, Diddy is bringing back the entire Bad Boy Family for his reunion tour!

On Friday, the rapper turned business mogul reunited with some old pals to perform some of their biggest hits — including Bad Boy For Life, I Need A Girl (Pt. 2), and the late Notorious B.I.G.'s Mo Money, Mo Problems!

Joining the Bad Boy leader on stage, Mase showed up to perform his classic Feel So Good, and Busta Rhymes busted out a high energy rap of Pass The Couvoisier — but that's not all!

DMX Is Performing At A Gay Club As The Opening Act For A Real Housewife… How's Your Day Going?

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteDMXReal Housewives

no title

We're happy to report DMX is in good shape following his near-fatal asthma attack/drug overdose back in February, but that's about where the good news ends.

That's because the rapper — who has five No. 1 albums, may we remind you — will soon be the opening act for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi!

The Bravo newbie has a successful music career of her own — eight No. 1 dance singles as her alter-ego Erika Jayne — but we wouldn't necessarily put them in the same league.

Well, clearly they are now, because DMX is apparently opening for Erika at House Nightclub in Miami this Saturday, May 14!

Okay… so technically the American Music Award-winner is only performing ahead of the TV personality from 5-11 p.m. before she takes the stage from 11:05 p.m.-5 a.m., but that sure sounds like the definition of "opening act" to us.

What's next for X? A Sam's Club parking lot tour??
