DMX Violates His Bail Bond In Tax Evasion

Rapper DMX left leaves federal court in New York with his attorney Murray Richman after pleading not guilty to tax evasion. DMX was ordered confined to his suburban New York City home Friday Aug. 11 by a judge

The "X Gon Give It to Ya" rapper is in even more trouble.

In July, the NY native whose birth name is Earl Simmons, was arrested on suspicion of tax evasion for allegedly owing the IRS more than $1 million in back taxes. DMX could be headed back to jail soon, but whatever time he faces would pale in comparison to the 44-year stint he'd deal with if convicted on all 14 counts of tax evasion.

DMX went to visit his family and he could go to jail as a result. Manhattan Federal Judge Jed Rakoff claimed on Wednesday that he got a report indicating that DMX "may have violated the terms of his pretrial release in numerous respects".

X was given house arrest because he "arrived late to court" and "left the jurisdiction on more than one occasion" without permission, Richman confirmed to VIBE.

DMX is ordered to wear an ankle monitor and can not even step outside to mow the lawn, according to the report. As part of his bail, he was required to remain sober and to inform the judge before leaving the state. He left NY to see family in St. Louis, without telling hizzoner and that could be a deal breaker.
