Rapper DMX Sentenced To Six Months Behind Bars For Failing To Pay Child Support


Rap singer DMX was jailed on Tuesday in Buffalo, New York and ordered to serve a six-month sentence for failure to pay child support.
The 44-year-old rapper, real name Earl Simmons, was sentenced to serve time in the Erie County Holding Center, according to a report on Tuesday by WIVB-TV in Buffalo.
DMX was turned over to Erie County Sheriff's Department jailers after a sentencing ruling by Family Court Judge Deanne Trippi. 

The Party Up (Up In Here) singer was arrested last month in New York City for failure to pay child support just before he was scheduled to perform at Radio City Music Hall.
A New York City Sheriff's Office spokesman said that DMX, who is the father of 12 children, had $400,000 in unpaid child support at the time of his arrest.
DMX was set to perform on July 25 at the Shaggfest 2015 music festival in Virginia Beach, Virginia. 

Shaggfest creator Brandon Stokes took to social media to announce that DMX was no longer in the lineup.
'He begged the judge to let him finish his last 3 shows. 2 this weekend and one next week. Which was #shaggfest. But the judge said no,' Stokes tweeted under his Shaggy alias on Twitter.
'Now I will find something to replace that slot and it will be great. We took a huge risk with Dmx and I'm not upset about the effort,' he added in a follow-up tweet. 

Desmond Tutu Hospitalized For Persistent Infection

Retired archbishop Desmond Tutu has been admitted to a Cape Town hospital for a persistent infection, according to his South African foundation.

The foundation, which is named after 83-year-old Tutu and his wife Leah, quoted their daughter Mpho as saying on Tuesday the family hopes the Nobel Peace Prize laureate will be able to return home in a “day or two.” The anti-apartheid icon last December cancelled plans to travel to a meeting of Nobel laureates in Rome, in order to battle prostate cancer which he has lived with for 15 years.

Sort this internally pls and channel the energy instead into creating awareness about male domestic abuse in a proactive way.. All this won’t solve anything bro. You are blessed!“
