DMX may have sold millions of album worldwide and be the only rapper to hold the honor of cussing Iyanla Vanzant slap the fuck out on national television but none of that matters to the collection agencies calling his Cricket cell phone.
Days after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and for failing to have a valid driver’s license, X filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in a Manhattan bankruptcy court on Monday (July 29).
The New York native and current South Carolina resident’s Chapter 11 petition lists less than $50,000 in assets and $1 million to $10 million in debt.
DMX was arrested this morning after an officer saw him at a gas station in Greer, South Carolina.
The 42-year-old rapper already faced several charges of driving without a license, so deputies say an officer pulled him over after watching him leave a gas station around 1AM, get into a 1978 Buick and drive away.
The current state of our world is a mess. Like really fucked up.
But you can’t show up at your significant other’s house sobbing and fighting the air like Cuba Gooding Jr in Boyz N Da Hood about all of the bad, unfair shit that occurs in it daily. Actually you can although I would imagine that it would take up the bulk of your schedule and give you unattractive knee caps in the end.
Thankfully, there is magic hidden in between Mama Earth’s fat folds for us to have and to hold in times we discover ourselves flirting with the idea of making like Naomi Campbell’s natural hairline and throwing in the towel. Don’t believe me? Just watch.
Tashera Simmons shocked both her husband of 14 years, DMX, and viewers of VH1′s reality show ‘Couples Rehab’ when she revealed that she wanted a divorce from the troubled rapper. Speaking with Essence.com she made it clear that she is ready to move beyond the confines of X’s shadow and into her own light.
Essence: So, you’ve officially decided to file for divorce, right?
Tashera Simmons: Yes and no. There’s so much to be decided on, so we’re actually in the process of filling now. Our lawyers want to give us advice. On the show, he was really stunned and he couldn’t believe it. I don’t know why. After going through all the stuff we did — after he did all the things he has done and after us going through therapy — I was just like, I couldn’t leave [the show] without asking for a divorce.
In all his infinite crackhead wisdom, DMX let his refusal to see it for the gworls in hip hop (namigly Drake) be heard loud and clear during a visit to Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club this week. And everlasting life was obtained by all who heard the good gospel. Here is a strand of pearls per Miss Jia:
I don’t like anything about Drake. I don’t like his fucking voice. I don’t like anything he talks about. I don’t like his face. I don’t like the way he walks. I don’t like nothing. I don’t like his haircut.
Scheduled to begin taping in December, one man janitorial service DMX and his estranged wife Tashera Simmons have agreed to appear on upcoming VH1 reality show ‘Relationship Rehab’ in the hopes of getting their failed marriage back on track, TMZ reports. And just so you know, comparing their marriage to a bowl of Kibbles N’ Bits being kicked over during a drug raid at The Carter wouldn’t be very Christian like. God doesn’t like ugly.
The Simmons separated in July 2010 after 20 years and four kids together . . . yet they are still best friends, insists the source – and that’s why they want to give it another shot. We’re told DMX feels Tashera is “one of the only people [he] truly ever loved and has been down with him through thick and thin.”
The thin? DMX cheated on his wife left and right – and even fathered six children during his extra-marital conquests.
