DMX's bankruptcy case thrown out of court

Nov 10, 2013 | 7:01am EST

Rapper Dmx's personal troubles are stacking up after his bankruptcy filing was dismissed in a New York court on Friday (08Nov13). The hip-hop hitmaker, real name Earl Simmons, declared his money woes in July (13), alleging he has less than $50,000 (£33,330) in assets and debts of more than $1 million (£666,670). However, his case has been thrown out by a federal judge, who claims the star failed to provide trustworthy information in his bankruptcy paperwork. According to, DMX now faces losing his possessions, including his share in a home in Mount Kisco, New York. The hearing comes just days after Simmons was arrested in South Carolina last Monday (04Nov13) on charges including driving with a suspended licence and without insurance, and driving an unlicenced vehicle. It was the star's fourth arrest this year (13).
