DMX Was Not Arrested For Pit Bull Dog Fights

Published

on

A gossip site published a story over the weekend claiming that DMX was arrested and charged with “counts of conspiring to promote and sponsor dog fights,” but the rapper’s rep tells HipHollywood that story is absolutely false.

“It is disappointing that Infossip chose to target DMX’s love for dogs for their own benefit,” the rep told us. “DMX was not arrested last weekend and does not take part in any dog fighting. We apologize to DMX’s fans for Infossip’s attempts at tainting X’s reputation with this false story.”

According to the report, “102 pit bulls from which 39 were still puppies were seized from the rapper’s home by an animal control unit.” The site also claimed that the dogs were malnourished and that “the lifeless bodies of 7 dogs were also found on the property.”

Earl Simmons, the rapper’s legal name, has had his fair share of legal run-ins, but this was not one.

X, who has been receiving positive feedback from his appearance in Chris Rock’s, Top Five, will be performing on January 9th in  St. Petersburg FL.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
