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.

Vanzant asked him about the root of his problems, asking about drugs is a fair question. Being over sexed and erratic is just a symptom of his substance abuse, no?

why do these people have no problem with jay-z selling all kinds of drugs to get himself started in the record industry? I know he was asked once , it was dismissed and we do not speak about it now. Meth ,H, and cocaine are not good things to pass around to make money, they kill people Mr. Cuba smoker

He couldn't have come across as more of a loser than he did on Couples Therapy season 2. http://vimeo.com/41962211

It's time someone confront him about his drug use. I wonder if he knows that a dear "friend" of his in another country died and left behind three little girls who were not able to receive their insurance money because of a HUGE debt X left him in... too awful to post...but true. Very sad situation...the children were left penniless and X is mad because someone confronts him about his use? The truth does hurt...and he probably WAS exploited, but clean up your OWN mess before you point out someone else's.

What!     

Well...he just wanted to talk about addiction to women, but in psychotherapy, things that we think are not related to the main problem are sometimes the things that are the ROOT of the problem!

Iyanla Vanzant does not have the credentials or qualificantions to be working with someone with substance abuse or mental health issues. Both are legitimate health problems just like any serious physical ailment.
