(AllHipHop News) Ever since the previews of “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” DMX has been the talk of the internet as he showed a volatile interaction between the rapper and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant. DMX is the subject of the season preview of the show, which airs tonight on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network.
But DMX, through his representative Domenick Nati of Nati Celebrity Services, sent AllHipHop.com an exclusive comment denouncing the show’s effort to fix his life.
“DMX agreed to be a guest on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ with the understanding that she would be helping his relationships with his 10 children,” the statement says. “When he arrived for the taping, most of the content was focused on his struggles with drugs and poor parenting. Iyanla did not ‘fix’ DMX’s life just made his image worse, and does not have DMX’s personal written consent to use the footage.“
DMX’s effort to stop the 90-minute show set for tonight at 9/8c will assuredly prove futile. What other actions DMX may pursue remain to be seen. The rapper is moving forward with his career. Earlier in the week, he played Madision Square Garden hijacking a set during Alicia Keys show.
“What the team does want DMX’s fans to know is that he is working on a new album that will include Swizz Beatz and we hope to also work with Timbaland, Dr. Dre, and Kanye West.,” it said. “Another announcement is his upcoming film ‘Blame It On The Hustle’ Mekhi Phifer and Ving Rhames.”
