The rapper DMX whose real name is Earl Simmons has been arrested. DMX was arrested by police for not paying child support and has been sentenced to 6 months in the jail for the offence. The verdict was passed by a judge on Tuesday the 14th of July in Buffalo, New York. 

44 year old DMX was arrested for not having paid child support last month just as he was about to perform at the Radio City Music Hall, according to Billboard. DMX was slated to perform at the Master of Ceremony concert at Radio City on the 26th of June.

As soon as DMX stepped out of his car the police apprehended him and took him to a judge. DMX was detained on count of other charges where he was accused of bail jumping and a robbery in another state that is Newark, New Jersey. However no felony charges were filed for the other charges but DMX was ordered to serve 6 months for failure to having paid child support. 

More than five different albums by DMX have charted at number one on the Billboard 200 album charts. DMX was also set to perform at the Shaggfest on the 25th of July in Virginia Beach but not anymore.

Shaggy himself took to Twitter to break the news of DMX’s absence at the event and called it a sad news. Shaggy confirmed the news of DMX’s arrest as he declared the rapper will not be making an appearance because he got ‘Locked Up’ for 6 months. 

The robbery charges against DMX were dropped as witnesses failed to identify DMX through surveillance footage and his attorney’s called the charges ‘Absurd’.
