DMX -- Stripped of His Dog House

6/25/2008 9:44 AM PDT
The sun rose this morning, and DMX is in trouble again: He's about to lose an NYC townhouse because he wouldn't shill for a line of dog clothes.

After the rapper was unable to fork over the $281K a judge says he owes a doggy clothing company for refusing to take part in a promotional campaign in 2004, DMX is being forced to auction off his Fifth Avenue townhouse to come up with the cash.

He was just arrested in Miami for driving with a suspended license.
