Update: DMX Denied “Celebrity Rehab” Treatment

DMX can’t catch a break. TMZ reports that a judge has denied the troubled rapper’s request to leave Arizona and be a part of VH1’s reality series, Celebrity Rehab.

As previously reported, X is currently serving a six-month sentence in an AZ prison for violating his probation, stemming from an incident where he threw a food tray at an officer while he was locked up on drug, theft and animal abuse charges last year. Admitting to using cocaine on several occasions, the rapper was thrown back in jail in March.

Dr. Drew Pinksy wrote a letter to the judge asking to treat the Ruff Ryders rep at his Pasedena Recovery Center at the time of the incident. Last week, the judge shot down the request, sighting that the Yonkers MC was doing just fine in the court appointed substance-abuse program.

Apparently X would be allowed to leave the state and film for the show after the program is finished in July, but by then it would be too late for filming.

As of press time neither Pinksy or DMX have responded to the judge’s verdict. —Elan Mancini
