When the Checks Stop Coming In

DMX is being accused of trying to get some hospital care for free:

On April 15, Mayo Clinic doctors thought they were treating a man named Troy Jones for pneumonia. But it was really Earl Simmons, better known as rapper DMX, trying to dodge a hospital bill, according to court documents obtained Friday. The rapper checked into the Phoenix campus’ emergency room, complaining of shortness of breath and chest pains, the documents said. “Someone in the projects is going to get the bill,” Simmons told a visitor to his hospital room, according to a May 9 search warrant served on the hospital by Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies.

The search warrant said Simmons provided the hospital “false information including name and address for billing purposes,” and that the high-profile rapper had committed the crime of “theft of services.” A confidential source inquired about Simmons’ room, but was told the hospital had no patient by that name. The source later said Simmons told him he checked in as Troy Jones to avoid paying the bill.

Still, Simmons, who owns a clothing line and acts, appears to be struggling financially. He and his wife, Tashera, who have four children, were sued in Maricopa County Superior Court last year by American Express Travel for $64,866 plus late charges, interest on a credit card and attorneys’ fees. The couple had paid a portion of the bill, but with other fees, still owed $83,353, as of April 23, court records said.

Come on now Earl, if you’re gonna do some sh*t like this, at least don’t get caught. SMH.
