DMX Denied Travel Request After Testing Positive for Cocaine


DMX is tired of being on house arrest, and wants a judge to let him out to travel.

DMX, whose legal name is Earl Simmons, asked Monday for Manhattan Federal Judge Jed Rakoff to approve a trip to Atlanta on Thursday, where he had a “personal appearance” scheduled on BET, according to court documents.

Last Friday, Judge Rakoff had ordered that DMX make travel requests at least one week in advance because DMX tested positive for cocaine and pot several times since he’s been on bail in his tax evasion case. The judge denied the ATL request because it came in too late.

Simmons’s lawyer, Murray Richman, made several additional travel requests, including another Atlanta trip from Aug. 21-24.

As for the other requests DMX’s probation officers want the judge to also deny, because they think it’ll interfere with his drug program. Dmx’s Lawyer he’s negotiating to get DMX out for some of the upcoming dates, saying the guy’s got 15 kids to feed and needs to make a living.

As you recall DMX has been charged with tax evasion after allegedly hiding his income from the IRS.

The U.S. Attorney’ office says DMX has concealed his income for years and is now owes about $1.7 million to the IRS.
