DMX at the Center of Stolen Watch Drama
Rapper DMX has been caught up in another legal wrangle after allegedly losing his watch to a woman who told police he had sexually assaulted her. The rap star, real name Earl Simmons, reported the theft of his $30,000 timepiece to police in Costa Mesa, California, after realizing it was missing from his hotel room on Saturday.
The cops arrived on the scene and arrested the unnamed female, who told officers Simmons had taken her back to his hotel room on Friday night and sexually assaulted her. Sources tell TMZ her assault claims are bogus, but police are investigating her allegations. Simmons spent several weeks behind bars last year for failing to keep up with child support payments to his ex-wife. He was handed the sentence in July, but walked free at the end of September. The rap star was arrested again in October and a warrant for his arrest was issued in December as the support saga rumbled on. Simmons also hit headlines in February when he was hospitalized after suffering an asthma attack and collapsing outside a hotel in Yonkers, New York.
