Dmx - Dmx Demands Tv Bosses Remove Emotional Drug Interview From Website

Embattled rapper DMX has threatened legal action against Oprah Winfrey's U.S. Tv network unless bosses remove online clips of a recent interview in which he breaks down over his lifelong struggle with drugs.

The Party Up (Up in Here) hitmaker, real name Earl Simmons, sat down for a discussion with spiritual coach Iyanla Vanzant for an emotional episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, and revealed all about his addiction issues, claiming he will "always have a drug problem, until I die".

He also confessed that the paranoia caused by his heavy drug use almost drove him to commit suicide on multiple occasions, saying, "I thought about blowing my head off a few times. The only thing that stopped me was... I have children."

The show aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network (Own) in the U.S. last weekend (13Apr13), but Dmx - who has fathered 10 children with multiple partners - claims the candid chat was only supposed to be about his addiction to women and that questions about his substance abuse troubles were not cleared with him before he went before the cameras.

He has now accused Vanzant of duping him into talking about his personal pain and is demanding Own executives take down footage of the interview from their website.

He tells, "Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings... That lady is toxic... My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can."

However, Vanzant has dismissed the allegations, insisting Dmx, who has been in and out of jail as a result of his drug troubles, is in denial because he had the chance to walk out of the two-day interview there and then - and he didn't.

She also claims Dmx signed the release form to allow the episode to air and suspects he's only now regretting the interview because he's not ready to seek professional help.

She says, "He freaked out on himself... (His accusations are) not accurate. Absolutely not accurate. And he never left, hello?! He never left and came back the second day to tell us he wasn't coming back. It means that some part of him wanted to be there... (He can be helped) but it takes a willingness, and I'm not sure the willingness is there."
