Via TMZ: DMX says he’s opting to check outta house arrest and into rehab — taking full advantage of a judge’s decision … TMZ has learned.
X says, “House arrest wasn’t working for me, so I made the decision to do something positive and better for myself.” Our DMX sources tell us he’s getting treatment for substance abuse at a facility in New England.
We broke the story, a judge approved DMX breaking his house arrest for tax evasion … specifically to enter a rehab program. He can even go without wearing a GPS ankle monitor.
X’s manager, Pat Gallo, tells us the rapper’s already been working with recovery coach Joseph Griffin and has made “great progress.” He recently took a community outreach trip to a firehouse with his rehab group.
DMX adds he’s also working on music during his treatment, telling us, “My pen is still to the paper and I’m in Beast Mode.”
Finally, this nut job decided to do this shit.
