DMX was arrested for failing to pay child support again, according to USA Today. He was arrested on Tuesday (Oct.27) at his home in Westchester, N.Y on a contempt of court charge after not paying his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, $10,000 a month in child support.
Luckily for X, he was released later that day after explaining to the judge that being incarcerated would further prevent him from paying the child support.
“All I have is my name and my reputation,” he said, adding that doing shows was the “only way [he] can make a living.” He was released without bail.
“I expect to see you back here on Nov. 18 to resolve this case in its totality,” Judge Paul Marx said. He told X that if he failed to appear in court, “things will not go well for you.”
The “Party Up” rapper was released from jail in September after serving three months of a six month sentence, also related to not paying child support.
