Veteran American rapper, DMX, who is a drug addict has checked himself into rehab to get help over his worrisome health. According to TMZ, he had to cancel three shows this week due to what was deemed a ‘medical emergency.’
The rapper reportedly entered the rehab facility voluntarily on Thursday April 28th in Southern California with the support of his manager, Pat Gallo, and his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons.
His manager released a statement, apologizing to his fans for the canceled shows, saying the rapper’s 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,” Gallo said in a statement. “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.’
Although, this is not time DMX is making a trip to rehab, over the years he was checked in for substance abuse issues.
