Rapper arrested for failing to pay child support, but a judge cuts him a break

DMX found himself once again in police custody Tuesday afternoon on a contempt of court warrant, reports TMZ.

The 44-year-old rapper was arrested in Yonkers, New York on the warrant for failing to pay child support to his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons. The couple share four children together.

While appearing in court on Tuesday, DMX asked the judge to let him out of jail in order to perform at his scheduled shows and make money. The judge gave DMX a break and released him without bail.

He is due back in court in November to work out his child support issues.

This most recent arrest comes just one month after he was released from jail for a separate child support case, in which he did two months behind bars.
