The New York rapper has been in rehab several times before for ongoing substance and alcohol abuse. He has been battling this ongoing issue for years and has even canceled shows as a result.
DMX reportedly has bipolar disorder making him one of many celebrities who try to lead a healthy life with a mental disease. The news of him being admitted into a rehab center comes just days after Mental Health Awareness Day where the rapper was one of the persons highlighted on social media and encouraged to keep being strong.
Earlier this year, the rapper signed a new record deal with Def Jam, reuniting with the label for the first time since his 2003 project “Grand Champ’.
In a statement on Instagram, a rep for the rapper said, “In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility. He apologizes for his canceled shows and thanks to his fans for their continued support.”
