Embattled rapper DMX has shot down reports he's checking in to CELEBRITY REHAB upon his release from jail, branding the rumours "false".
The hip-hop star, real name Earl Simmons, is currently serving time at Tent City Jail in Arizona on various charges of drug possession, animal cruelty and theft.
Reports surfaced over the weekend (25Apr09) alleging DMX had signed up to appear in the U.S. reality show in a bid to overcome his drug habit - but his representative has dismissed the claims.
Publicist Pam Pinnock tells AllHipHop.com, "Several media outlets have reported that my client Earl Simmons, aka DMX, has signed on to appear in VH1's Celebrity Rehab reality show. These reports are false and Mr. Simmons has not agreed to appear in any reality show."
