DMX Jailed For Owing $400K In Back Child Support
Earl “DMX” Simmons is behind bars again.
According to The Guardian, the troubled rapper has been ordered to spend six months in prison over delinquent child support payments. He was apprehended by police just before a June 26 show at Radio City Music Hall over “issues outstanding,” which include child support and an open warrant with Newark Police stemming from last month’s robbery allegations. So far, charges have not been filed regarding the robbery claims.
Simmons was placed at the Erie County Holding Center on July 14. According to WIVB, Erie County Sheriff’s Deputies say that the courts turned him over to them to serve time pertaining to a family court ruling. The decision was initially handed down on October 5, 2011, by Judge Deanne Trippi.
Simmons stands accused of owing $400,000 in back child support.
