DMX has been the source of media headlines ever since his interview on Oprah Winfrey’s OWNâ€™s Iyanla: Fix My Life aired last Saturday (April 13).
While the Yonkers-bred MC said that he was not on drugs during the interview with Vanzant, the OWN episode told a different story; thus, people have heavily questioned the rapperâ€™s well beingâ€”mentally and physically. Now, X is firing back, saying, â€śIyanla pulled a fast one,â€ť reports TMZ.
The show host didnâ€™t hold her tongue when trying to get to the root of DMXâ€™s drug use and family life, and looking back, the former Ruff Ryder doesnâ€™t appreciate the showâ€™s attempt to misrepresent him.
According to TMZ, â€śShe was supposed to ask him about his addiction to WOMEN … not drugs … and the dope questions were NEVER cleared beforehand.â€ť And as a result of the rapperâ€™s negative attention, DMX wants OWN to remove the footage of the interview immediately. The celeb media outlet says DMX has reached out to his team to â€śexplore legal options.â€ť
Utterly displeased with the way Iyanla â€śset upâ€ť the interview, DMX had one thing to say as soon as the public slaughtering came to an end: “Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings,” adding, “That lady is toxic … My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can.”
