DMX Opens Up to Dr. Phil About Streaking, Drug Addiction, & Child Support

DMX and Dr. Phil

Iyanla couldn’t fix his life, so DMX sat down with Dr. Phil this week for some therapy. The embattled rapper opened up about his longtime battle with drug addiction, his erratic behavior, and headline-making arrests. He also explained his recent streaking incident in a hotel.

“It was a bet, it was a dare,” said X of the incident, which was posted on TMZ. “The dare was order room service and run through the hallway naked. I was like, ‘I’ll do that.’”

When asked what his biggest mistakes have been, he responded, “I wouldn’t redo anything ’cause it got me right here, right where I’m at right now. I’m in a good place. No regrets.”

DMX has 11 children (with one more on the way) and is $1.23 million behind in child support. “At a time, I was making $13 million dollars a year, so if I’m making $13 million a year, then I can pay that,” he said. “And I haven’t made that in about 10 years, so of course I’m behind in payments, but the children are taken care of.”

Is DMX really troubled or just misunderstood? Watch his full session with Dr. Phil below.

    @weneeddmx, I dont know but one record this nut case made and that was something about “I’m gone lose my mind up in heah, up in heah”. What else has he done? That crap doesn’t take a genius.

    they need to let this lunatic go down where he belongs. there are too many other nut cases needing and wanting help. he doesn’t want any.

    the nerve of him disrespecting the great Iyanla.

    They should help his beautiful son get a career. That is a nice deserving young man.

    This was a very good watch and I really hope he gets better. There is no denying the impact he had on hip-hop during his reigning days. His biggest problem I would say is that he is just so damn stubborn!
