Dmx Slams Reports Of Prison Guard Attack

Subscribe to DMX alerts

Embattled rapper DMX has blasted allegations he attacked a prison officer while behind bars in Arizona, insisting the rumours are an attempt to "destroy (his) credibility".
The hip-hop star, real name Earl Simmons, is serving time at Tent City Jail for drug possession, animal cruelty and theft.
Reports surfaced on Wednesday (25Feb09) claiming DMX had also been causing trouble while incarcerated - by assaulting a guard with a loaded food tray.
But the rapper has slammed the allegations, and is adamant he is seeing out his sentence "peacefully" - without any special treatment.
In a statement, he says, "Many of you know me as DMX but right now I am speaking to you as Earl Simmons. Just a man trying to serve my time peacefully in order to put all this behind me so I can carry on with my normal life.
"The truth of the matter is, in the eyes of many I am not just a normal man but rather a celebrity, which can be a blessing and a curse. Since I have begun to serve out my sentence, I have not been given any special treatment but it has actually been the opposite.
"For the record, I want to state 'I Did Not' physically touch or hit an officer. This is just another attempt to destroy my credibility."
DMX is expected to serve a total of 90 days in jail, plus an additional 18 months of supervised probation for his various convictions.
