DMX

Has a Bone to Pick w/ Oprah

Over Drug Interview

4/21/2013 3:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0419-dmx-tmzDMX says the Oprah Winfrey Network tricked him into spilling his guts during a recent interview -- in which the rapper came off as erratic and strung out -- and now he's out for revenge.

DMX is furious over his sit-down with Iyanla Vanzant on her show "Iyanla: Fix My Life," which aired on OWN. During the chat Iyanla asked X about his rampant drug use and he didn't hold back -- appearing unhinged.

But DMX tells us ... Iyanla pulled a fast one. She was supposed to ask him about his addiction to WOMEN ... not drugs ... and the dope questions were NEVER cleared beforehand.



He says, "Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings," adding, "That lady is toxic ... My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can."

X tells us, he's already contacted his team to explore legal options -- and wants the footage removed from OWN STAT... or else.

And who made him answer the questions? It's the fact that he's a fool that made him look like a fool. This guy exposed himself for exactly what he is. Trash. Good luck with that whole fighting Oprah thing... I'm sure that's gonna work out for you.

Only DMX can control DMX. She can't do it or speak for him. Now he sounds like a big baby. If you don't want to answer a question....then don't! Be a man, quiet the whining and girly dramatics.

Well, just watched this clip again. DMX is obviously altered, even nodding off a bit. He is deeply wasted. Blaming others for portraying him accurately shows how bad off the dude is. No excuse to be foul to the lady, DMX. You did an interview while messed up and freaking out, hardly able to get coherent sentences together....that was Your Choice. It was very obvious to anyone watching you were on drugs, so she had to mention it and was trying to help you. Get sober and save yourself before you get worse.

No one forced him to go into detail like he did. She said she was going to accept any answer he gives her. What exactly did she say that was so bad? DMX is a fool who needs to grow the hell up and act like an adult.

Addicts never want to take responsibility for their actions when they're high. If you ask any addict they will tell you they act normal when they're high. That includes alcoholics who think their addiction is cooler because it's legal.

Another celebrity "tricked" into telling the truth about his drug use by the media. Maybe he should just sober up instead of exploring his legal options.

What a vulgar, rude jackass. I'm not an Oprah fan, but her credibility seems strong,. He has had drug issues, it isn't like the cover was blown. Idiot.

Duh    

He was tweaking out so effing hard that she didn't even NEED to bring it up. He gave himself up! Don't blame her for they way you brought yourself to a camera. He looked like he shot meth followed by a few hundred hits off the rock!!! He looks like he will die soon.
