Judge to DMX: No 'Celebrity Rehab' for You!

5/8/2010 4:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A judge has denied rapper DMX's request to leave the state so he can be a part of Dr. Drew Pinsky's "Celebrity Rehab" -- which, considering the doc's track record, is probably a good thing.

X is currently in jail in Arizona for violating his probation. Dr. Drew offered to treat DMX at his rehab clinic in California -- and tape the rapper's progress for the show, of course -- but on Tuesday an Arizona judge shot down X's request to hop the border so he could enroll.

According to a rep for the Maricopa County Superior Court in Arizona, the judge rejected the rapper's petition for one reason -- he's already doing really well in the Arizona court-appointed substance abuse program, which ends early in July.

After that, the judge says, DMX can pursue treatment at Dr. Drew's facility -- but by then, taping will already have begun for "Celeb Rehab" and X will have missed his chance.

What kind of loser would even want to be on that show?

Celebrity is a big part of their drug problem, and making them the center of attention on a television show is only making matters worse. Does Dr Drew not get it, or is he as clueless as the druggies?

I don't understand the jab at Dr. Drew. If you're referring to patients relapsing, well then you don't anything about substance abuse and recovery, because the relapse rate is incredibly high even with the best care.

It's sad to see DMX like this. I hope when he gets out of Jail, he will go back to doing what he does best making music that touch people, make dance and make go crazy. We don't want his troubles hover over his talent.

I agree with DECAPITATAH,



DMX was a great Hip-Hop artist, and he was even a good actor. I hope that he can make a complete recovery. I am prayerful for his recovery.

Considering Dr. Drew's track record?



Dear TMZ weekend staff writer... you're a ****ing idiot.



Addicts relapse no matter if they're on TV or not. Have you ever even watched his show? The patients go through hell detoxing and trying to stay clean. They're addicts.. they're going to relapse at some point, most likely.



****. You TMZ'ers are waste of human space. Feel free to off yourselves. Thanks.

Love Dr. Drew, you people that knock him are idiots and don't know anything about addicts or addiction. He's the genuine deal people and really wants to see people recover, it's not his fault if they go back to old habits, he can only offer the help and what they do with it is up to them. Don't shoot the messenger, he does a great job - you go Dr. Drew!!!!

I don't know that being remanded to Dr. Drew's rehab "would probably be a good thing". I've been a Nationally Certified drug abuse counselor for over 15 years, and I find that the staff that's shown on Tv bows much too much to their clients sense of entitlement. They do not suffer for their actions in the same proportion that the normal rehab client does. These "stars" need to know that they are all run of the mill addicts/alcoholics with a disease that they share with commoners as well as other celebrities. I don't believe that that the Tx outcomes are any more significant on the TV show than any other legitimate treatmment facility.
