Rapper Dmx is heading off on a European tour this year (14) after reportedly resolving financial issues which restricted his ability to travel. The hip-hop star confirmed shows in the U.K., Germany, Belgium and Holland in a Twitter.com post on Tuesday (21Jan14). A statement posted on his official website adds, "DMX's passport and child support issues have been cleared and all of the expenses required for this clearing were handled by Sha from Exclusive Entertainment... his next international tour will start on the end of March 2014." The star, real name Earl Simmons, has suffered numerous legal troubles over the years and unsuccessfully filed for bankruptcy last July (13) with debts of more than $1 million (£625,000) in a bid to lift court-ordered restrictions on his passport. In December (13), Simmons also settled a long-running child support battle with Patricia Trejo, who claimed he fathered her daughter more than a decade ago.
