DMX’s demons have gotten the best of him again.
He was forced to postpone some recent concert dates, and now we know why. He voluntarily checked into a rehab center to get some help and avoid having a relapse.
According to TMZ:
As we first reported, X had to cancel 3 shows this week due to what his rep called a “medical emergency.” We’re told he flew to Cali to get help because he felt he was “moving to a dark place” and wanted to make sure he stayed on the right path.
Sources at DMX’s show in Brooklyn last week tell us he was drinking heavily beforehand.
In a statement, Gallo apologized to X’s fans for the postponed shows, and says, “It is important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer.”
He added, “We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of concern and support that has poured in. We ask that you please keep X in your prayers as he embraces your support.”
DMX performed last week at the Ruff Ryders Reunion show in which there was mixed reviews on his performance and choice of setlist.
