DMX has had his fair share of substance abuse issues over the years, and it looks like he’s ready to make a change because he checked himself into a rehab facility.
According to TMZ, he had to cancel three shows this week due to a “medical emergency.” He apparently flew to California to get his mind right. Sources revealed to the site that X was drinking a lot before his show in Brooklyn last week, which could have prompted him to get help.
DMX’s manager released a statement, apologizing to X’s fans for the cancelled shows, but admits his health comes first.
“It is important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer.”
He continued, “We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of concern and support that has poured in. We ask that you please keep X in your prayers as he embraces your support.”
