DMX is not happy with the way he was portrayed on a recent episode of the OWN show “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” saying that he was tricked by the self-help host into spilling his guts. Now he wants to take legal action.
X tells TMZ that Iyanla was only supposed to ask him questions about his addiction to women but not about his highly-publicized issues with drugs. X tells the site that the questions about drugs were never cleared beforehand. “Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings,” he barked. “That lady is toxic … My last words to her were that she can ‘suck my d—-’ and she still can.”
TMZ shares that the rapper is contemplating legal action against Iyanla and OWN, Oprah’s television network, over the interview.
X’s publicist shared a statement with RapFix explaining the rapper’s grievances: “DMX agreed to be a guest on “Iyanla: Fix My Life” with the understanding that she would be helping his relationships with his ten children. When he arrived for the taping, most of the content was focused on his struggles with drugs and poor parenting. Iyanla did not “fix” DMX’s life; just made his image worse, and does not have DMX’s personal written consent to use the footage.”
