*DMX’s lawyer has made it known that he wants Dr. Drew Pinsky of the VH1 reality series “Celebrity Rehab” to help his client get clean once and for all.
“DMX has been battling addiction for some time, and he’s in need of treatment,” says an attorney for the rapper, who was busted in Arizona Tuesday for allegedly violating the terms of his probation by using drugs.
The artist, real name Earl Simmons, admitted to using illegal drugs over the last nine months, including cocaine.
“We’re hoping that maybe Dr. Drew might be able to help him,” said his attorney Gary Jenkins. “He’s a talented man. We’re praying for him.”
There was talk last spring that DMX would join the cast of “Celebrity Rehab” upon his release from Arizona’s Tent City Jail, but those rumors turned out to be false.
