But Does He Want The Help? Check Out A Preview Of DMX’s Interview With Dr. Phil
If you watched the Iyanla: Fix My Life episode with DMX, I’m sure you remember how much of a handful the rapper was when Iyanla tried to connect with him, especially when she tried to have him speak with his estranged son. An opportunity to get “beloved” on the right path turned into a hot mess of an intervention that ended with DMX telling Iyanla to “shut the f**k up,” and the spiritual teacher telling him that “You never get to talk to me again, ever!”
So if she can’t fix that man, who can? Dr. Phil possibly, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. In a preview for the sit down between Dark Man X and everyone’s favorite TV psychologist, the two went back and forth about why he’s so far behind in child support, why he stays in trouble, and why he thought it was a good idea to run through a hotel with no drawls on. There are moments in the preview when DMX would laugh at his troubled past or basically act like he couldn’t be there for his children because the world “needs him.” All in all, I have a feeling this intervention is not really going to make the difference people that care about him are hoping for. Why? Because he has to be ready and willing to seek help, and as we learned from his time cussing out Iyanla Vanzant, he doesn’t think there’s anything wrong.
But what do you think? Check out the preview of his interview with Dr. Phil and share your opinion. And if you’re interested in watching it in full, their sit-down will air tomorrow (Wednesday, September 25) on CBS.
