Judge denies DMX's request to participate in VH1's 'Celebrity Rehab'

UPI News Service, 05/08/2010 

An Arizona judge has denied hip-hop star DMX's request to leave the state so he can participate in the television reality show, "Celebrity Rehab."

Dr. Drew Pinsky offered to treat DMX, real name Earl Simmons, at the doctor's rehab clinic in California and tape the rapper's progress, reported Saturday. DMX returned to jail in March for violating terms of his probation by using drugs such as cocaine, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said at the time.

A spokesperson for the Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix said the judge rejected DMX's request because he was making progress in a substance abuse program mandated by the court. The program ends in early July.

The rapper was released from Maricopa County jail in May 2009 after serving 90 days of his 18-month sentence for cruelty to animals, theft and drug charges. The recording artist has previous convictions for assault, attempted aggravated assault, possession of assault firearm, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted robbery and attempt to purchase cocaine.
