DMX Files for Bankruptcy

Nothing’s changed… DMX is still a wild beast off his leash. First he passes out in the back of a cop car, now this? The stay-in-the-news-for-some-dumb-ish rapper filed for bankruptcy at a Manhattan court on Monday. The documents show that my man is $1 million to $10 million in debt, with less than $50,000 in assets. But this is the kicker: he owes $1.24 million in back child support. Pause. That takes deadbeat dadism to a whole new level. His rep claims that the main purpose for filing broke is so he can regain his passport to carry out a tour oversees. Is that so? Hope he uses that show money to catch up on some child support.

Just three weeks after dropping her fifth studio LP, her self-titled album popped up on Groupon in a bundled deal along with Ciara’s Greatest Hits. Act now and you can get them both for the low price of $13.99! But you have to hurry, you only have three days left!
