DMX To Serve Time In Jail After Failing To Pay Child Support

July 15, 2015


While most celebs are clean as a whistle when it comes to having problems with the law, there are certain famous people that just can’t stay out of trouble. One of these people is DMX, who is now sentenced to jail time due to not paying child support.

Billboard reports that the famous rapper was sentenced on Tuesday in Buffalo, New York, after being arrested in June this year for failing to pay over $400,000 in child support.

Shaggy, one of DMX’s famous buddies, tweeted last night with confirmation of the news: “It comes with sadness and regret. But Dmx will not be attending this year #shaggfest. – he got locked up today for 6 months.”

While Earl “DMX” Simmons is yet to comment on the recent development, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that he wound up in legal trouble again. His past crimes include weapon and drug possession, driving without a license, assaults, criminal impersonation, DUI’s, theft, animal cruelty, and many more.
