DMX is no stranger to a mugshot, nor has he ever been out of trouble for long enough to mention his career without disturbing criminal footnotes. Supposedly, X was at it again on Saturday night, running some unlucky fan’s jewels during an odd encounter at a New Jersey gas station.
A 21-year-old man told Newark cops that DMX and the rapper’s entourage fleeced him for $3,200 worth of cash at an Exxon station just after midnight, according to Newark Police spokesman Ronald Glover.
The victim told police that the conflict began after he recognized the rap star at the filling station on Highway 21 and the two began to talk about music.
During the conversation, a member of the rapper’s entourage pulled out a gun, and demanded the victim’s money, the man told police.
After the man pulled the huge wad of cash out of his pocket, DMX allegedly grabbed the money and fled in a fleet of four black Cadillac Escalades, the man told police.
That has got to be the worst fan-boy moment ever alleged. DMX has several favorable “viral video” moments that portray him as a family man, and a supporter of holiday cheer. In other words, DMX was having a polite resurgence after a very rocky decade of drug abuse.
If this report is true, there’s another valley to add to his dark record. The Newark PD is currently investigating the claims.
