DMX has yet to speak up about reports that he robbed a man at a New Jersey gas station but his lawyer has come forward denying these claims.
His lawyer, Murray Richman, is saying that these allegations are “completely absurd” and that the man is claiming that he was robbed because DMX refused to buy drugs from him.
“He was leaving a show, a very successful show, and he stopped for gas,” Richman told E! News. “Four young men approached him for a photo. They took photos and they offered [DMX] drugs. He said no and told them to go…They had an argument and next thing you know, they are accusing him of robbery. Just nonsense.”
A 21-year-old man alleges that while conversing with X about music, a member of his entourage pulled a gun on him and demanded money. After pulling about $3,200 out of his pocket, he claims that DMX snatched the money and then he and his entourage hopped into four black Cadillac Escalades and took off. The man says he then followed one of the vehicles and was able to get the license plate number.
Newark Police are currently investigating the incident and have obtained surveillance footage.
