DMX Busted at Mervyns

11/3/2008 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

DMXYou know those bargain bins that offer discounts because the packages have already been opened? Well, that's where serial arrestee DMX was caught digging for duds this weekend.

Some shocked sources at the "going out of business" sale at the Lakewood, Cal. Mervyns say they saw X -- hence the photo -- loading up on tube socks and gangsta tanks from the 79 cent pre-opened package rack.

We know X has some money -- he actually performed at an event Friday on the Queen Mary -- but he's probably saving that scratch for legal fees.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with going to Mervyn's. They are going out of business, unfortunately..

It's not because you have some money you have to spend like a fool.
Our over spending got us in this mess.
Save as much as you can

Nice...criticize somebody for NOT being extravagant--for being careful with his money.

I love Mervyns!! So sad they closed down in the Northwest, so sad they are going out of business and so sad they never invested in online shopping. So so sad!

It is nice to see a celebrity buying socks and tank tops that don't cost what some of us would be paying for our rent/mortgages.

Wow, this is a first - I actually agree with comments 1, 2 & 3.
Yeah, TMZ, find a drunk-driving celebretard to pick on, not someone who actually pays attention to his expenditures.

Slow news day before a huge election????

Whoever wrote that tripe about DMX is a total loser. Smart people look for deals. Harvey pays TMZ writers nothing, right. They are all a bunch of punk kids without educations. Harvey's getting 79 cent tube sox content writers that will never be offered a position at anything respectable. I'll bet the long haired DB wrote this. Loser. Can't wait for each of these maggots to run home to momma when they lose their ten buck per hour gig. DMX made his art and sold it. What have you done?

So what's wrong with going to the discount rack? Celebrities are expected to shop at the most expensive spots just because they have money. If I was famous for something, I would still shop at the dollar stores and the discount bins. Why spend all of that money just because you have it?

im not going to say that where he is shopping is sad.... i shop at discount stores too....but its just sad that he was there before im sure....like before all of his successes....i just want to know where it all went wrong.....like he went from making tonnes of money (im sure) to not even being able to get a record out because hes ina nd out of jail all the time...its just sad that he would throw it all away...

So, if a celebrity spends money like it's going out of style, you mock them. If a celebrity tries to be thrifty and down-to-earth by shopping smartly, you mock them. Okaaaay.

ok so TMZ isnt picking on DMX 4 "bargain shopping" at mervyns because everybody does it, but i work there and i was at work that day and DMX was bargain stealing. he walked out the store with a mervyns bag full of out of package merchandise, which he could have paid for because it's pretty cheap because we're going out of business.
