DMX Back to Jail for Failing Drug Tests

DMX Back to Jail for Failing Drug Tests

He was supposed to be completing rehab.

Prosecutors pointed to that video in making their recommendation for him to be jailed, according to U.S. Attorney Spokesman Nicholas Biase. "I would like to say I have total control of his movements, but I don't", lawyer Murray Richman said. "We'll have to deal with it accordingly".

Sad: TMZ reports that the judge ruled the Ruff Ryders Anthem hitmaker (pictured in June) was a flight risk as he had tested positive for opiates, cocaine, and oxycondone.

DMX arrives at federal court for a surprise hearing on January 30, 2018. He was then set free on bail and was scheduled to be sentenced in March (18).

The 46-year-old hip-hop artist and actor was arrested last summer.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, had also pledged to travel on tour with a drug counselor, but that had not happened, Barrios added.

During that period DMX relapsed, pretrial services officer Leo Barrios said.

DMX, 47, whose songs include the 2003 hit "X Gon' Give it to Ya", pleaded guilty in November to tax fraud.

The prosecutor said DMX had made a decision to do the right thing and plead guilty and agree to pay his taxes. "He said, in effect, 'screw you'". His bill amounted to $1.7 million in unpaid taxes, that occurred from 2010 to 2016.

Outside court, Richman said the incarceration interrupts a busy concert schedule for Simmons, who was performing three to four nights a week and was booked solidly through July. Authorities said he insisted on being paid cash whenever possible and diverted royalty payments to the accounts of others, including managers.

A lawyer for DMX did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The "Get At Me Dog" rapper was put in handcuffs in Manhattan Federal Court following a brief hearing before Judge Jed Rakoff.

"His activity shows he is a genuine flight risk in ways I hoped weren't true", the judge said. I failed to file taxes'.
