DMX News Archive
Things aren't looking too good for DMX.
The rapper AKA Earl Simmons was arrested in New York on Tuesday for allegedly failing to pay $10,000 a month in child support for his four children with ex-wife Tashera Simmons, according to the Westchester County Clerk's office.
Did we mention the 44-year-old just got out of jail in September after being charged for not paying $400,000 in child support to another woman?
The Party Up singer spoke in front of Judge Paul Marx — where he argued that he needs to be able to perform in order to make money to pay the child support:
"It's not like I can hide. All I have is my name and my reputation. [Rapping is the] only way I can make a living."
Marx decided to give X a chance, and he was set to be released. The next scheduled court appearance is November 18.
This is just another infraction to add to a long list of legal problems for the rapper ranging from: alleged robbery, jumping bail, resisting arrest, reckless driving, drug possession, and identity falsification.
We just hope the kids are taken care of.

Watch Jay Z Get SUPER Embarrassed When Jimmy Kimmel Forces Him To Relive His Past With A Vintage Rapping Clip!
Like most of us, Jay Z is totally embarrassed by his younger self!
The Empire State of Mind rapper appeared on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk a walk down memory lane of his younger years.
Jay even recalled entering a rap battle with Busta in school, and according to his reaction — it didn't go well!
Check out the clip (below) to see what we mean!
While we knew that DMX was arrested for failure to pay child support at the end of June, it looks like the court system has finalized its ruling.
The 44-year-old was sentenced to six months in a Buffalo prison on Tuesday after he was picked up by cops right before he was scheduled to play a concert at the Radio City Music Hall.
This is definitely going to be a hard time for him, but this actually isn't the first time he's been behind bars.
Most recently, DMX spent seven months behind bars in 2011, so this half-year term should feel like nothing!
Did U foresee jail time in his future??

DMX Was Just Arrested For Failing To Pay Child Support Right Before He Was Set To Go On Stage For A Concert!
Someone didn't have the best weekend…
DMX was reportedly arrested on Friday night in New York City for failing to pay more than $400,000 in child support!
Apparently, the 44-year-old rapper was scheduled to perform a show at Radio City Music Hall, but Police were already waiting at the venue and took him away as soon as he arrived.
We're hearing that DMX then appeared in front of a judge on Saturday, but was then detained for a completely separate incident where he allegedly skipped bail in another county!
It wasn't all bad news, however — New Jersey Police officially dropped charges against the star for a gas station robbery in April over a lack of any proof.
We hope you can get this all sorted out, D!

Morning News Show Fail! Name That Tune Segment Goes Awry As Show Accidentally Airs Song Saying 'Suck My D*ck!'
This segment was not too well thought out!
Apparently, on Fox's Good Day New York things got a little crazy up in there (up in there) as a Name That Tune segment went horribly awry as DMX's Party Up came on.
Unfortunately one of the two anchors, Greg Kelly, could not guess the song in time before DMX was spewing the line "suck my d*ck" on-air.
You stay classy, Fox!
Ch-ch-check out the segment for yourself…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
