Nightclub Sues DMX — You Screwed Us Over

Exclusive 0303-dmx-tmzDMX has been slapped with a lawsuit by one really pissed off nightclub — claiming X took cash for a gig but never showed.

Owls Nest Sports Lounge filed the suit in South Carolina court, claiming it hired DMX to do a meet and greet on August 25, 2012 for the bargain price of $3,000 … but X left the club high and dry.

Owls Nest wants X to return the green and pay various expenses to boot … including $45 for several bottles of gin and $50 for a bartender.

The lesson here … if a super famous rapper says he”ll appear for $3,000 — it”s probably too good to be true.

Calls to DMX have not been returned.
