It ain’t easy having the same name as DMX when the rapper has a whopping child support lawsuit against him.
A Massachusetts man named Earl Simmons was reportedly hit with a paternity test from X’s child’s mother in Florida. And while the motion clearly made it into the hands of the wrong man, the rapper still thinks it would be nice if the other Simmons paid that child support balance. In an interview with TMZ, DMX inquired about his namesake’s delinquent payment status – you know, for his children.
“Why he ain’t in jail yet? ‘Cause he clearly hasn’t paid so Earl Simmons, pay that motherf***in’ money!” he said when asked about the other Earl Simmons. “If he wants to pay some extra money, let him pay it. I’ll give him free tickets to a concert.”
DMX was jailed in June after he incurred a healthy $400,000 lump sum in child support. He was released four month ahead of his scheduled six-month sentence. We’re sure his commentary about the other Earl Simmons was in jest, but if not, DMX better better put on a hell of a show for $400,000
