The Get It On The Floor star, real name Earl Simmons, was sentenced to six months in prison in July (15) over his unpaid child maintenance bills, but was released on 25 September (15).

On Tuesday (27Oct15), DMX was back behind bars after he was arrested in Yonkers, New York on a contempt of court warrant which was issued in July (15).

He is accused of failing to pay support to another woman, his ex-wife Tashera Simmons, who is supposed to receive $10,000 (£6,250) a month for their four children.

DMX, who is a father of 12, appeared in court on Tuesday and begged to be released so he could keep his planned shows and make money.

The judge released him without bail and the star is scheduled to return to court on 18 November (15).

He was married to Tashera from 1999 to 2010.
