DMX Lands in Mental Health Unit

DMX has been moved to Flamenco Mental Health Unit, which is located in an Arizona State Prison Complex.  After pleading guilty to violating terms of his probation, DMX was sentenced to a year in jail on December 16, 2010. Judge Christine Mulleneaux told the rapper at his sentencing she believes he has an undiagnosed mental condition that could be possibly be bi-polar disorder.

The Phoenix News Times reports that DMX’s manager, Nakia Walker, wouldn’t comment on the status of DMX’s mental health but said she wasn’t surprised when he was moved. This isn’t the first time his mental condition has been questioned. Journalist William Shaw asked the New York native about the subject in 2001. “Waaay too personal,” DMX responded.

This marks the 13th time DMX has been incarcerated including more than 24 arrests, 11 felony convictions, and 15 misdemeanor convictions. According to his manager, DMX will not be allowed visitors for 30 days. – Nicole LoPresti
