BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Rapper DMX has been sentenced to serve six months in an upstate New York jail for failing to pay child support.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office says the 44-year-old rapper whose real name is Earl Simmons was placed in the Erie County Holding Center in Buffalo on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the New York City Sheriff’s Office tells WPIX-TV that DMX was arrested right before his scheduled performance at Radio City Music Hall on June 26 in New York City for several “issues outstanding.”

Those issues included $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, a warrant issued by the city of White Plains for bail jumping and a robbery complaint out of Newark, New Jersey. No charges have been filed in the Newark case.

    Another great example of stupidity, someone who can’t get out of his own way. But surely he won’t be able to pay anything if he can’t work. I never understood that about the child support/court system.
