DMX's FULL "Fix My Life" Episode + DMX Now Says Iyanla Vanzant MADE HIS LIFE WORSE!
Iyanala Vanzant spent her 90 minute premiere of her show "Fix My Life" trying to help DMX. The rapper definitely needs long term and in depth help for his drug issues and a possible mental illness. Check out how Iyana attempted to help out X in a controversial and extremely intense episode, and why X feels like Iyanla ruined his life even more instead...
Maybe X isn't feeling the saying "It has to get worse before it gets better." Because after filming last night's episode of OWN's "Fix My Life," the rapper issued a statement through his team that says he doesn't condone Iyanla airing the episode because he didn't give consent afterwards. And he didn't give consent because he felt that she used the opportunity to rail him on his drug use. He says his life has not been fixed, but it's now been made "worse."
AllHipHop.com talked to his team who said:
“DMX agreed to be a guest on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ with the understanding that she would be helping his relationships with his 10 children,” the statement says. “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.“
In the full hard-to-watch episode above, you'll see Iyanla digging deep into X's past to get to the true root of his problems with why he feels he needs multiple women, why his relationship with his 10 kids is horrible, his many many arrests and his drug & possible mental issues.
Of course, none of these problems are surface issues, they all have deep rooted beginnings that must be dug up--especially from childhood--in order for a person to get "fixed." But X fought back, popped off on Iyanla a few times, and appeared hurt by one of his sons who said he had zero respect for X.
Check out the full episode above and decide for yourselves if X was simply railed for entertainment value, or if this intense therapy was needed in order to get to a better place.
As for what he's up to next, his team says:
“What the team does want DMX’s fans to know is that he is working on a new album that will include Swizz Beatz and we hope to also work with Timbaland, Dr. Dre, and Kanye West. Another announcement is his upcoming film ‘Blame It On The Hustle’ Mekhi Phifer and Ving Rhames.”
We wish him the absolute best.
