Report: DMX Arrested for Not Paying Child Support

Deputies nab rapper while he was en route to a performance in NYC.

DMX just added another arrest to his already extensive record. This time, he was charged for a series of unpaid child support payments.

TMZ reports that there was actually a warrant out for the rapper's arrest. He was caught by the New York City Sheriff's deputies while en route to a Radio City Music Hall performance on Friday night (June 26).


Due to his arrest, the "Where My Dogs At?" MC missed his scheduled performance, but the show went on without him. The Masters of Ceremony showcase featured other old school hip hop acts including The Lox, Kid Capri, RakimMa$e and more.

This is just one of many arrests that the New York rapper has accumulated over the years. Some of his previous charges include animal cruelty, reckless driving, drug possession and probation violations.
