If the scene in the photo above looks familiar, there’s a couple reasons why that’s so. For one, it’s the second time this year that we’re seeing DMX with a professional therapist who is going to help him work through his many, many issues. And two, well he’s doing it in the same damn shirt.
As soon as I saw this pic, I thought, wait a minute, something looks familiar. And then I remembered, this is the same flannel shirt DMX wore when he appeared on “Iyanla: Fix My Life” and the life coach famously told him he doesn’t get to speak to her eva again in life. See?
Perhaps this is DMX’s intervention shirt, but if his session with Dr. Phil goes anything like the one with Iyanla Vanzant, both Phil McGraw and his audience are going to be in for a rude awakening. We found out last week that DMX was going to appear on yet another of Oprah’s protege’s shows after his little nekkid incident inside of Detroit hotel room earlier this year and today pics of their meeting popped up on Twitter. X certainly looks more pleasant than he did with Iyanla, but so far all we have is this photo to come from.
The fact that DMX is appearing on this show suggesta the rapper is clearly still fighting a losing battle with his many demons, including a drug addiction, addiction to women, and most of all unhealed wounds from the lack of his mother’s love as a child. Let’s hope Dr. Phil will be able to get through to X in a way Iyanla wasn’t. Are you hopeful?
