DMX may be back in trouble with the law once again, as the rapper reportedly missed his court date this weekend.

According to reports, the Ruff Ryders MC, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was due in court today, but didn’t show up due to staying out in Las Vegas for his DMXmas concert, rather than flying back.

The hearing was regarding him paying back child support to his ex-wife Tashera Simmons, but now a warrant has reportedly been issued for his arrest.

DMX made a deal with the judge that he needs to travel for appearances in order to make money, but he was supposed to be back on December 14th for the court date.

He reportedly told the judge that he believed that the court date was December 15th, which is his excuse for missing the meeting.

Hopefully DMX can get this straightened out so he doesn’t have to go back to jail.
