*An arrest warrant was issued for DMX on Monday after he missed a court date in New York, and the rapper says he can explain.

According to TMZ,  he thought his lawyers had gotten the date changed so that he could attend the party he hosted in Las Vegas.

Instead of making the court hearing to address his child support issues with ex-wife Tashera Simmons regarding their four children, DMX was performing at his “DMX-Mas” on the Vegas strip.

In October, the same NY judge let him out of jail so he could perform and make money for child support, reports TMZ. Sources in the court say the judge now thinks he was too lenient with the rapper.

X’s attorney is contacting the court to work out the details, and they believe the warrant will be lifted.
