Troubled Dmx Served With Another Paternity Suit

LATEST: Rapper-turned-actor DMX was slapped with a new paternity suit as he turned up to face criminal charges in a New York court on Wednesday (08DEC04).

Minutes before the 33-year-old hip-hop star, real name EARL SIMMONS, pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of prescription valium, he was served with paternity papers as his pregnant wife looked on.

An angry and shocked DMX hurled abuse at the process server who handed him the papers outside court, and had to be persuaded to calm down by his attorney.

In the court papers, a woman from upstate New York alleges the rapper fathered her four-year-old son and hasn't paid child support.

The incident mirrored one that took place in September (04), when a Maryland woman filed paternity papers against DMX.

The rapper, who was conditionally discharged in his criminal case on Wednesday, insists he's not the father of either of the children involved in the paternity suits.

Both cases are pending and DMX is due back in court to face the first of the paternity charges against him on 19 January (04).
