DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was sentenced to serve time in Erie County Holding Center for six months for failure to pay child support.
The 44-year-old rapper was jailed on Tuesday in Buffalo, New York, after failing to pay $400K for his 12 children. Wow!
The Party Up (Up In Here) singer was arrested last month in New York City for failure to pay child support just before he was scheduled to perform at Radio City Music Hall.
A New York City Sheriff’s Office spokesman said that DMX, who is the father of 12 children, had $400,000 in unpaid child support at the time of his arrest.
DMX was set to perform on July 25 at the Shaggfest 2015 music festival in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Shaggfest creator Brandon Stokes took to social media to announce that DMX was no longer part of the lineup.
Stokes tweeted, “He begged the judge to let him finish his last 3 shows. 2 this weekend and one next week. Which was #shaggfest. But the judge said no.
“Now I will find something to replace that slot and it will be great. We took a huge risk with Dmx and I’m not upset about the effort”.
Trey Song was the scheduled headline act at Shaggfest.
DMX previously has been arrested for during under the influence as well as for driving without a valid license.
The Romeo Must Die star spent seven months in an Arizona prison in 2011 for violating his probation for drug-related probation violations including cocaine possession.
