Rapper DMX was arrested in New York City Friday night, according to the New York County Sheriff’s Office.
Details were scarce shortly before midnight about what prompted the arrest, but a spokesman for the sheriff’s office said the 44-year-old rapper and Yonkers native whose birth name is Earl Simmons was taken into custody.
DMX was slated to perform at 8 p.m. at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, according to Ticketmaster’s website.
18 Karat Reggae has requested more information from the sheriff’s office and will update this article when those details arrive.
The word in the streets, however, is that DMX arrest is because of his failure to pay child support.
