Barely one month since his release from jail, DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is reportedly back in court facing more time behind bars.
According to TMZ, the rapper was arrested on Tuesday, Oct. 27 in Yonkers, NY due to a contempt of court charge for not paying child support to his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons. The singer reportedly owes about $10k a month for their four children.
DMX supposedly begged the judge to not be imprisoned because he needed to perform “scheduled gigs” to make money.

Luckily, the judge was feeling merciful and released the 44-year-old without bail. He will reportedly have to appear in court in November.
DMX was released in September from prison in Buffalo, NY for not paying child support to a different woman.
