DMX’s Son Is Selling His Father’s Platinum Plaque on eBay
This is strange. DMX's son Xavier Simmons is selling the commemorative plaque for his father's first three multiplatinum-selling albums on eBay for $3,000 (or best offer). The three albums are It's Dark And Hell Is Hot, Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, and And Then There Was X. X is currently in prison at New York's Erie County Holding Center serving a six-month term for failure to pay $400, 000 worth of unpaid child support. TMZ reports that DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is pissed at his son and says that he never gave permission to sale the plaque. Xavier is also looking to start a music career. The son obtained the Commemorative Plaque after DMX was kicked out of the house in 2007, leaving a lot of his stuff behind. At press time, the plaque is still available on eBay.
Dark Man X has had a pretty tumultuous year. DMX's ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, was granted court approval to garnish the rapper's royalty checks, he admitted to eating dog food, Seven Arts Entertainment released a new DMX album with DMX permission, a New Jersey man accused DMX of robbing him at a gas station and DMX was arrested while in route to Masters of Ceremony, an old school hip-hop show that takes place at the Radio City Music Hall for unpaid child support.
In 2013, DMX and his son Xavier reunited on Iyanla: Fix My Life. You can watch that and check out a record from Xavier below.
