A gossip site published a story over the weekend claiming that DMX was arrested and charged with “counts of conspiring to promote and sponsor dog fights,” but the rapper’s rep tells HipHollywood that story is absolutely false.
“It is disappointing that Infossip chose to target DMX’s love for dogs for their own benefit,” the rep told us. “DMX was not arrested last weekend and does not take part in any dog fighting. We apologize to DMX’s fans for Infossip’s attempts at tainting X’s reputation with this false story.”
According to the report, “102 pit bulls from which 39 were still puppies were seized from the rapper’s home by an animal control unit.” The site also claimed that the dogs were malnourished and that “the lifeless bodies of 7 dogs were also found on the property.”
Earl Simmons, the rapper’s legal name, has had his fair share of legal run-ins, but this was not one.
X, who has been receiving positive feedback from his appearance in Chris Rock’s, Top Five, will be performing on January 9th in St. Petersburg FL.
