DMX is on the hook for another $630,000 — this according to a booking agency which claims X”s legal problems torpedoed a lucrative international comeback tour … and now, it”s suing to get its money back.
The booking agency in question — a company called Heavy Rotation — filed the lawsuit in New York, claiming it struck an exclusive year-long deal with DMX in 2011 to book the rapper”s concerts … anywhere on the planet.
But according to the lawsuit, DMX was plagued with legal problems from the start — a traffic violation in August, and two nasty child support disputes … which led to a lien on the rapper”s passport, preventing him from performing overseas.
According to the suit, HR bent over backwards to fix the legal issues — coughing up nearly a hundred grand to cover bail, child support, and a slew of other legal bills … hoping it would clear the way for the tour, a task that included lifting the lien on X”s passport.
But HR claims its efforts were in vain — because DMX continued to cause problems, hiring outside management that tried to book DMX on shows within the United States … violating X”s agreement with HR. On top of that, X couldn”t resolve his passport issues … and all concerts had to be canceled.
X”s manager Jason tells a different story — claiming DMX chose to sever all ties with HR after it put the rapper at risk with some unsavory business practices.
Still, HR claims it lost $749,285 on the deal gone bad — and it wants the money back, stat.
