DMX was sentenced to six months in jail this morning in Phoenix.

From MSNBC.com

A judge has ordered rapper DMX to spend six months in a Phoenix jail for violating probation and to undergo a mental health evaluation.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, admitted in court Tuesday to a single violation of probation for failing a drug test last June. He was arrested March 9.

The 39-year-old rapper was released from jail in May after serving a 90-day sentence for felony convictions including cruelty to animals, theft and two drug counts.

Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Christine Mulleneaux says he could be released from jail earlier if he’s accepted into a drug rehabilitation program.
Celebrity doctor, Dr. Drew Pinsky’s drug rehab program presented the judge with a letter stating that they would like to work with DMX to beat his drug problem instead of sending him to jail.
