Dr Boyce Watkins: DMX arrested for $400,000 in child support – Let’s talk about that

The rapper DMX is currently in jail for owing $400,000 in back child support. This has also led to drama with his son, who has been selling his memorabilia on ebay.

From NY Daily News:

Rapper DMX is reportedly “livid” after finding out his son is act(ing) a fool by selling his prized Platinum albums while he’s stuck in prison.

The “Where the Hood At” spitter feels angered and betrayed by his son Zavier Simmons, who is looking to make some cash off a plaque commemorating his dad’s Platinum achievements to jumpstart his own music career, reports TMZ.

Simmons is hoping to garner $3,000 on eBay with the piece of memorabilia– which celebrates the rappers first three Multi-Platinum-selling discs: “It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot,” “Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood,” and “And Then There Was X.”
