DMX checks into rehab after cancelled shows

Shortly after DMX cancelled three shows due to a “medical emergency,” he is reportedly checking into rehab.

DMX has previously been open about his past struggles with drugs and addiction, so when he felt that he was “moving to a dark place,” according to TMZ,  the famous rapper wanted to keep from sliding into that same path.

DMX, real name Earl Simmons, checked into rehab last Thursday, and his manager, Pat Gallo, and ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, both reportedly encouraged the decision.

Gallo also issued a statement to fans apologizing for the cancellations, saying, “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.”

“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.”
