After being released from jail four months early this past September, rapper DMX is reportedly back on the system’s bad side after failing to appear at a court hearing for unpaid child support, according to HotNewHipHop.
“X stayed in the city of Las Vegas after his DMXmas concert last night instead of flying back for court on Monday,” the site reads. “A lawyer for X told the judge that he had thought the court date was tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec. 15), but apparently Judge Paul Marx wasn’t having any of it.”
The rapper, who displayed his comedic chops on a recent episode of ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat, was arrested in June outside of Radio City Music Hall before his Masters Of Ceremony gig for failure to pay child support to his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons.
X has offered up multiple alternatives to have the hefty child support price tag paid off, such as suggesting a Florida man who shares his given name (Earl Simmons) pay it off for him. Let’s hope that things start to look up for this troubled star soon.
