DMX Checks Himself Into Rehab, Cancels Concerts
American rapper, DMX has cancelled his upcoming concerts and checked himself into a rehab facility.
According to a post on his official Instagram page, the rapper has decided to put “family and sobriety first“:
“In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility. He apologizes for his cancelled shows and thanks to his fans for their continued support.”
The rapper, who was released from prison on January 25th after serving a year behind bars on tax evasion charges and then embarked on a 20th anniversary tour celebrating his It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, has been candid about his struggles with drug addiction; in 2017, DMX cancelled a series of gigs in order to reenter a rehabilitation facility.
“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,” DMX’s manager Pat Gallo said in a statement at the time. “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.”
