Rapper DMX has settled a child support battle with a woman who claimed he fathered her daughter more than a decade ago.

The hip-hop star, who has 10 children with several women, was accused of failing to pay child support for a daughter he shares with Patricia Trejo, who demanded he hand over $1 million (£666,667) in back payments, according to editors at Tmz.com.

Representatives for the X Gon' Give It To Ya hitmaker have now told the website that Dmx has settled the dispute but declined to say exactly how much money he has handed over.
