Last month, the rapper was arrested by New York City Sheriff’s deputies for a number of “issues outstanding” before being extradited to Erie County serve time for the family court-issued sentence. From USA Today:
DMX also was served warrants from the city of White Plains, N.Y., for jumping bail and a robbery complaint from Newark, N.J. The Newark-based charges were dropped.
DMX attempted to file for bankruptcy in 2013 for protection from creditors owed $1.8 million in contract disputes, goods, services and child support, but a federal judge threw out the case. Last year, DMX’s Mount Kisco, N.Y., house, inhabited by his estranged wife Tashera Simmons, went into foreclosure.
It comes with sadness and regret. But Dmx will not be attending this year #shaggfest. -- he got locked up today for 6 monthsJuly 15, 2015
