Subscribe to DMX alerts

Rapper DMX pulled out of his debut as a martial arts fighter because demands to ensure he won were turned down by the promoters, according to U.S. reports.
The hip-hop star, real name Earl Simmons, pulled out of the December (09) fight with Eric Martinez in a celebrity Alabama Pride MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) event earlier this week (begs02Nov09).
DMX, who served jail time for drugs possession, animal cruelty and theft earlier this year (09), was said to have cancelled the match over fears for his safety.
But documents obtained by show the fight was axed because Thunder Promotions refused to fix the match to allow DMX to gain victory.
His manager, Nakia Walker, allegedly submitted an addendum to the rapper's original contract for the fight, stipulating: "Event Promoter and Management agree that (DMX) is scheduled to win Boxing Challenge... All parties agree this event has been scheduled to occur only in fun and that the artist involved is not a professional boxer."
The promoters refused to sign the amended contract - and are reportedly looking for a replacement celebrity while preparing a lawsuit for breach of contract.
