Rapper DMX no longer has bankruptcy protection from his creditors.
According to the "Journal News," a federal judge in New York tossed the rapper's Chapter Eleven bankruptcy case on Friday due to his apparent noncompliance with legal proceedings. Creditors can now take aim at DMX's possessions, which includes partial ownership of a Mount Kisco, New York home.
Justice Department watch dogs had previously asked the court to dismiss the case because of inconsistencies in court documents.
Following the case's dismissal, DMX's publicist released a statement saying that DMX - born Earl Simmons - and his team will "move forward" with plans for national performances despite this "recent obstacle." The rep adds that DMX is currently working to get his passport so he can bring his music to fans overseas.
