DMX could be headed back to jail less than a month after pleading not guilty to cheating the IRS out of $1.7 million in taxes.
On Wednesday (Aug. 7), Manhattan federal judge Jed Rakoff said he received a report indicating that the rapper/actor “may have violated the terms of his pretrial release in numerous respects.” As a result, X is ordered to appear in court on Friday, where he could be called to the carpet for the violations.
DMX’s lawyer, Murray Richman, said the rapper went to St. Louis a couple of weekends ago without permission from the court’s probation officers.
“He left the jurisdiction without permission,” which he is not allowed to do, Richman told The Post.
If convicted of tax evasion, DMX faces up to 44 years in jail.
