DMX Gets into Heated Showdown with Iyanla Vanzant on ‘Fix My Life’
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
If it hasn’t been made clear by now, we will go ahead and confirm that DMX is still battling some major personal issues that he now credits as a factor in the demise of his marriage to childhood sweetheart Tashera Simmons and even the source of his legal issues and abrupt ending to his successful rap career. Regardless, he’s been making some appearances on reality shows that were created to aid people in getting themselves together (Celebrity Rehab is his most recent), however, he’s still just not back on track and some people speculate that it could be due to alleged drug abuse.
DMX appears to be taking the route that most troubled celebrities are taking these days, and he agreed to make an appearance on Iyanla: Fix My Life. However, things got pretty ugly fast when Iyanla started to believe that DMX was acting under the influence of some kind of drug and she proceeded to then ask him if he was high during their session. And just like that, all hell broke loose.
While we can only imagine how the session ended, the preview clip of the upcoming episode was just insane, as it shows scenes of DMX yelling at Iyanla and telling her to “shut the f*ck up.” And then there’s that moment that Iyanla just snaps and tells DMX that he can never speak to her again. So with that being said, we’re pretty sure this episode is going to be an intense one.
