DMX Violated Tax Evasion Bail May Head To Jail News by Robert Longfellow Aug 10 2017 8:26am Share This Tweet This Email This

Page Six reports that DMX (real name Earl Simmons) has violated the terms of his bail after allegedly traveling out of state to St. Louis without permission.

"The Court has received a report from pretrial services indicating that the defendant may have violated the terms of his pretrial release in numerous respects", Judge Rakoff said in an order docketed Wednesday afternoon.

The controversial rapper, who is now out on bail in a tax evasion case, recently went to visit family in St. Louis without informing the judge.

The bottom line is that Judge Rakoff has ordered DMX/Earl Simmons to appear in his courtroom on Friday (08-11-17), where he could be called to the carpet over the violations. According to Richman, X's trip was for family reasons.

Simmons' lawyer Murray "Don't Worry Murray" Richman, said the rapper went to St. Louis a couple of weekends ago without permission from the court's probation officers. "It was for a personal situation with regard to the lady he's living with".

As much as X has been to jail, we hope they don't roll with the "I forgot" defense.
