Former Ruff Ryders leader DMX is on the other side of the law as reports claim he recently had his vehicle stolen from an unlikely source.
According to reports, Dark Man X’s unfortunate situation took place earlier this month.
For now, DMX won’t have to worry about getting popped for any driving offenses in his 1978 Buick Regal … because his so-called friend allegedly stole it right out from under him … according to a police report obtained by TMZ. DMX and his girlfriend — Desiree Lindstrom — told cops they gave the car and a duplicate title to a friend … who was going to sell it for them. But the friend vanished into thin air some time earlier this month and never returned. What’s more, according to the report, the friend changed his phone number … and DMX doesn’t know the guy’s last name … he only knows him as Lonny. Apparently DMX uses the term “friend” lightly. Cops are on the lookout for the car … but their first investigative task is to find out Lonny’s last name. (TMZ)
To make matters worse, X recently had a judge reject his bankruptcy ruling case.
A federal judge in New York has tossed rapper DMX’s bankruptcy filing, making him fair game for creditors. The Journal News reports that a bankruptcy judge in White Plains dismissed the 42-year-old rapper’s July 29 Chapter 11 filing on Friday. The hip-hop star’s real name is Earl Simmons. The judge’s move means he could lose his possessions including his share in a home in suburban Mount Kisko. (The Hollywood Reporter)
Reports claimed X did not provide trustworthy information in the filing.
Simmons’ biggest debt is $1.3 million in child support owed to some of the 10 children he has fathered. U.S. Trustee Tracy Hope Davis said Simmons failed to provide trustworthy information in his bankruptcy filing. Simmons’ publicist Domenick Nati said he was unaware of the court hearing.

In a recent interview, X admitted he would not change his past despite his multiple run-ins with law enforcement and also confirmed recent publicized money woes reports.
“I wouldn’t redo anything ’cause it got me right here where I’m at right now and I’m in a good place. No regrets,” X told Dr. Phil. “[My children?] They’re well taken care of. I’m a big influence in their lives. I love all of my children. I do see them and speak to them when I can. I do have a relationship with my children. I love my children. I would never just not be a part of my children’s lives. That doesn’t make sense. [Child support debt?] Yes, I am. The reason being because at a time I was making $13 million a year, so if I’m making $13 million a year, then I can pay that. I haven’t made that in about 10 years, so of course I’m behind in payments, but the children are taken care of.” (“Dr. Phil”)
