DMX arrested on tax evasion charges
American rapper DMX has been arrested on 14 counts of tax fraud charges. It’s been revealed that he evaded taxes to the tune of $1.7m.
The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is set to appear before a New York judge today.
He allegedly concealed his true income, telling a bankruptcy court that his income was unknown for the years 2011 and 2012 and just $10,000 in 2013.
He is also accused of “maintaining a cash lifestyle, avoiding the use of a personal bank account, and using the bank accounts of nominees, including his business managers, to pay personal expenses.”
