Sources close to the X hitmaker, real name Alvin Joiner, claim Patrick Whyntie, who booked the star to perform at the Adelaide UniBar, failed to provide adequate transport for his guest, forcing Xzibit and members of his entourage to flag down taxis to take them from the airport to a hotel and on to the soundcheck.

With his imminent return to the music world, Xzibit has talked about the tragic factor that kept him away for so long - the death of his new-born baby son, back in 2008.
'Pimp My Ride' host, Xzibit, has emotionally revealed that the tragic loss of his new-born son in 2008 led to an unfortunate break down in his career as a rapper and actor. Alvin Joiner, better known as Xzibit, was understandably devastated when his son, Xavier Kingston Joiner, was born premature and died in May, 2008. The rapper has taken years to return to the recording booth since the death, yet his return is to be signified by the upcoming release of his very personal album, 'Napalm'.
Xzibit, who has two other sons - Tremayne and Gatlyn - spoke to Billboard's 'Close Up' series, to explain: "I haven't put out a record for six years. I had a real personal tragedy. Xavier Kingston was my second born son and he passed away prematurely. He lived for 13 days then he passed. Not only was it devastating to me but to my girl. It [is] something that you just can't just up and (say), 'Oh well, guess I better go tour.' It ain't like that. You know? So sometimes you have to disconnect yourself from that."
Rapper Xzibit has taken to Twitter.com to thank fans for their outpouring of support following his father's hospitalisation.
The hip-hop star, real name Alvin Joiner, dashed to his father's hospital bedside in New Mexico on Sunday (22Jan12) after alerting followers to the fact his dad had undergone surgery to amputate a leg due to complications with diabetes.
Xzibit was inundated with kind words and messages from fans after the news broke and he has since expressed his gratitude to his devotees.
In a tweet on Monday (23Jan12), he wrote, "Thanks to all of the loved ones sending support and well wishes for my dad. We fully appreciate it."
