The Yonkers, New York rapper was placed in the holding center on Tuesday (July 14) of this week to serve time for a family court ruling.
The Guardian reports that DMX’s sentence stems from the 44-year-old musician not paying $400,000 in child support. He was initially arrested in late June prior to a performance at New York City’s Radio Music Hall.
The news report from WIVB states that DMX’s sentencing comes at a time when the rapper has managed to garner “a history of crime in Erie County, including over child support and traffic violations.”
In April of this year, DMX and his entourage were accused of robbing a man of $3,200 and holding him at gunpoint at a Newark, New Jersey gas station. After being approached by TMZ about the incident, he stated that he didn’t recall any incident taking place at the gas station.
“I wouldn’t even be on the cameras,” DMX said while speaking with TMZ in April. “We stopped at a gas station. I don’t recall any incident happening. I make way more than that doing a show. So, why would I want that type of trouble for myself…The harder the devil works at trying to destroy me because I’m special to God.”
