DMX Says Iyanla: Fix My Life “Made His Image Worse”


DMX is not a fan of the episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life that he starred in this weekend. According to the Yonkers rapper, the show was set up under false pretenses and only hurt his image. 

On the episode, life coach Iyanla Vanzant traveled to Yonkers to meet with the rapper. At the start of the show it is revealed that DMX was seeking help to deal with his constant womanizing. However, the season premiere episode of the OWN network program focused on his substance abuse problems and his relationship with his family, particularly with his estranged wife and their son.

A press representative for the “Get At Me Dog” rapper issued the following statement:

“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.”

The representative went on to reveal that Dark Man X is working on a new album which will include contributions from Swizz Beatz along with hopes of all working with Timbaland, Dr. Dre, and Kanye West. Recently, X hit the stage as a surprise guest during an Alicia Keys concert in New York City.

Also, DMX will be appearing in a film called Blame It On The Hustle featuring Mekhi Phifer and Ving Rhames.

Let us know what you think of X’s claims in the comments.

    DMX please, he played the victim the entire time, honey ur image was hurt when u picked up the crack pipe or when u picked getting high over a relationship with your son

  • Iyanla is a smart woman and she wouldn’t have aired the episode unless she had consent.

  • DN

    OH PLEASE! He hurt his own image with his disrespectful actions, language, and manner. He is clearly a conflicted individual. His son felt he was “toxic” and he’s known him all his life. I wish the brother the best as he, hopefully, works towards healing his heart, his soul, and his relationships.

    I thought when 2pac died DMX would we the next man up! But what I saw on the show was a very talented waste of a man! See when your on drugs like he clearly is you blame everyone but yourself! WAKE UP DMX!! GET SOME HELP SOON!!

  • There was no way for the conversation to be about anything but substance abuse because he was obviously high as a kite. Iyanla would look like a fraud acting like she didn’t notice. I feel so sorry for his children.

  • kysauntie

    Dummy, ur drug problem is why u don’t have a relationship with them.

  • @supportdmx

    According to the statement, he agreed to discuss exactly what was discussed. His relationships with women and his children come full circle in the discussions that ensued. As for image. That’s what crisis communications are for. Get a new PR rep.

  • The root of his problems are the drugs, so she did what she had to do… his image has been in the toilet for the past several years, so Idk what he could possibly mean by this hurt his image… him having a girlfriend and a wife at the the time of Couple’s Therapy hurt his damn image, along with the 15+ arrests he’s had during his fame! Smh… praying for this man everyday because his demons are REAL!


    It was a tough episode to watch – he is a very angry man. But one thing came to mind that would go away quietly “WHITNEY HOUSTON-crack is whack”. Sadly, i couldn’t help but recognize the damage and the drugs used like glue to hold him together. He is unraveling…hopefully his son can learn and side step his fathers mistakes. i have to hand it to Iyanla, she was able to help the son find compassion for those with the disease of addiction so maybe there is hope for him. Godspeed DMX Godspeed
