An Arizona Judge has reportedly denied locked up rapper, DMX, bail and the opportunity to leave jail to attend Dr Drew’s “Celebrity Rehab” television show. DMX is already in a rehab while he’s in jail. According to the local paper, the judge denied DMX petition for simply one reason, he’s already doing well in the substance abuse program in prison.
Previously we reported that DMX had filed a lawsuit from jail. According to the New York Times, DMX has reportedly filed a $1 million dollar lawsuit against Rich Kid Entertainment over unpaid royalties.
The troubled Westchester rapper filed suit Monday against Rich Kid Entertainment, charging that the entertainment company pocketed 100% of the funds from a contract signed a decade ago that was only supposed to provide a 10% cut. “DMX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and has had No. 1 singles and albums on the Billboard charts, which in turn have generated a great amount of revenue for Defendants, but has left [DMX] with nothing,” the suit says. The suit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, says DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, didn’t even become aware of the “fraudulent acts” until last year – because he had bigger problems. “From 2000 through 2008, Simmons was in and out of jail and changed representatives numerous times,” the suit says.
