DMX arrested again and released

YONKERS, N.Y. (WIVB) — Rapper, DMX, or as he is also known, Earl Simmons, was arrested again on Tuesday on a warrant charge from a July court date, according to TMZ.

He is accused of failing to pay child support to his ex-wife, with whom he has four children.

Simmons spent two months in the Erie County Jail and was released in September.

The 44-year-old appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and reportedly begged the judge to let him stay out of jail.

Simmons’ reasoning was that he needed to perform and earn money. He was released without bail.

Simmons is set to appear in court in November to negotiate child support issues with his ex-wife.
