Things are looking up for DMX.
After three months in jail for unpaid child support, the 41-year-old Yonkers native has been released, All Hip Hop reports. The father of 12, was successful in getting his charges reduced and freed from New York’s Earie County Holding Center Friday.
X, whose birth name is Earl Simmons, was busted on his way to Radio City Music Hall performance in late June. He was subsequently sentenced to six months over a $400,000 outstanding child support bill.
He’s not totally in the clear though. X claims he was unaware of the child support debt, and if a court finds otherwise, he could end up back behind bars.
