Although DMX’s life in the public eye found itself in a trance of positivity – he’s reportedly working on a docu-series and completed a stint in rehab – the multi-platinum rapper has landed back in the jowls of the criminal justice system.
According to TMZ, the 46-year-old entertainer agreed to a guilty plea deal after confessing to one count of tax evasion. The site notes Dark Man X could’ve been tacked with over 40 years in prison after being charged with 14 counts of tax evasion.
The case was brought to light in July 2017 when court documents outlined X’s outstanding balance of $1.7 million in unpaid taxes.
The ruling could land DMX in prison for up to five years. He will reappear in court on March 29 for the judge’s final decision.
