DMX


The 39-year-old rapper has been arrested in Arizona after reportedly using illegal drugs during his probation term.

Rapper DMX has been arrested in Arizona, according to a new report. The star was taken into custody after allegedly violating the terms of his probation by using illegal drugs - and now his lawyer has issued a public plea for help to TV drug counselor Dr. Drew Pinsky.

DMX's attorney Gary Jenkins tells TMZ, "He's been battling addiction for some time and he's in need of treatment. We're hoping that maybe Dr. Drew might be able to help him. He's a talented man ... We're praying for him."

DMX spent time in jail in 2009 on charges of drug possession, animal cruelty and theft, stemming from various arrests in 2008. After his release in May 2009 he was sentenced to 18 months probation for verbally threatening a guard during his stint in prison.
