Not shockingly, DMX is placed on house arrest after showing up late to court and testing positive for drugs.
DMX showed up over 30 minutes late for his Friday court appearance and the rapper has been hit with house arrest, per TMZ. The judge announced that X failed four drug tests, testing positive for cocaine and marijuana. It is no secret that X, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has long battled issues with substance abuse.
The Yonkers (NY) rapper is currently out on bail regarding his tax evasion case and has stringent conditions, including no drug use. Earlier this week, X violated another condition as he left the state without informing his probation officer.
DMX now must wear an ankle monitor at all times to ensure he doesn’t leave his home in New York City. He is currently facing 14 counts of tax evasion.
