Judge Orders Warrant After Rapper Skipped Yet Another Court Date
DMX is once again a wanted man.
A New York Supreme Court judge ordered an arrest warrant for the troubled rapper Monday after he didn’t show for a hearing on paying back child support to his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons.
Judge Paul Marx was livid when DMX didn’t turn up for a scheduled court date at Westchester County Supreme Court, even though the rapper gave his word that he would. The last time Judge Marx ordered him arrested was back in October, and when cops hauled him in, DMX claimed he needed to go back on the road to earn money, but would be back for court.
Instead of showing up, DMX was was performing in Las Vegas for “DMXmas” at the Foxtail Nightclub. His lawyer told the judge the rapper thought the court date was Dec. 15 – not Dec. 14 – but the judge wasn’t buying it.
“It’s going to be really hard to perform at the Westchester County Jail,” the judge said. DMX “sat here at the table and said, ‘If you let me go, I’m coming back.’ Well, he ain’t here. It’ll be interesting to see if TSA picks him up on a warrant.”
