DMX Gets Jail, But It's Dr. Drew to the Rescue

3/16/2010 4:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DMX was just sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation -- but rehab could save him from doing hard time.

DMX: Click to watch
DMX admitted to five separate probation violations -- the result of using illegal drugs.

During the hearing, a rep from the Pasadena Recovery Center gave the judge a letter from Dr. Drew Pinsky, asking permission to treat X at his facility ... in lieu of jail.

The judge seemed open to sending X to the PRC.

I thought Drew Pinsky was no longer affiliated with the Pasadena Recovery Center because of their many problems & suicides. Did he forget? Fame whore. And they'll be lucky if DMX doesn't murder someone while there.

Moar video of him freaking out in court, please. I don't want to see him sober, I find him more entertaining getting served some good ol' justice.

Go get em' whatever your real name is.

Just another example of the rich and famous getting away with stuff--this guy is rich enough--he can pay for his own rehab, Dr. Drew--get some people that aren't rich and famous and help them!

Re Habs cost alot of money, the normal person doesn't have access to all the fancy ones!!

Dr. Drew needs to stop rubbing elbows with the celebrities and tend to the people in his facility. There have been families that have come forward and said their family member has died in Dr. Drew's facility. They made it sound like he is all about his celeb status and doesn't treat his normal patients.

Dr. Drew "feeds" off others addictions and illnesses. He is a leech. And he doesn't have a good recovery record. I agree he needs to take care of the non-celebrities and stop looking for his 15 minutes of fame. He is everywhere on tv and needs to be doing his job.

If this doesn't prove Dr Drew is a dbag fame whore I don't know what does. This guy will try a tag his name on anyone that is in the news.Whether he has a chance to get them or not doesn't matter as long as his name is inb the copy that's all that matters. He couldn't care less about anyone. People like him make me sick because when the camera is rolling he's all about compassion and careing....BS.BS.BS the only people that believe this DB is the house wife from the mid west...you know the one that finds Jay Leno funny...ya that one.

If it has to be done this way then so be it...from there on it's his choice to except it or not. DMX you should consider yourself a lucky one whether you think so or not...think about it (Corey, MJ, Brittany...need I say more)...you held your own fate in your hands and look where it got you...it's time to ask for HELP.

Someone needs to tell Drew his botox injections make his face look puffy and lopsided. Seems he's more concerned with his appearance on camera than his patients.

Is "Dr.Drew" even a real board certified doctor? Or is he just a big fake?
