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.

Does this guy know what a release form is? You know, the piece of paper they wouldn't let him roll a joint with and made him draw his three "XXX"s on before they started filming?


And what kind of an idiot do you have to be to think that appearing on a show named "Fix my Life" is a good career move?


And what the hell is an "Iyanla"?

I can't believe ya'll could watch that video, and not realize it's an attack on the alpha male. DMX has problems of course, not many in his position don't. But I believe his will is stronger than most that criticize him. Look at how Iyanla tried to use the bible on him, he shut her up quick. Hell, look at Iyanla's facial expressions as he show his support for the alpha male. They basically took his son, and turned him into a metrosexual. Smh.

I'm on team DMX for this one. Ilyana just screams at people and does it all for attention, there is no way that is how a certified therapist works.

It's funny, in that interview his son calls the relationship with him "toxic", and now DMX is using that word. You know that was the first time he even heard it.

....and someone else just laid down with him and had another child with him. Wasn't he just arrested after this show for driving without a license - and had his infant daughter in the backseat???

Oh please give me a break. No one set DMX up. Anybody with two eyes could have seen he was strung out on drugs. He couldn't make a clear and complete sentence. I had to turn on my closed caption to get an inkling what he was saying. Hell Stevie Wonder could have seen this one. He is so toxic with drugs and alcohol he doesn't have the clear mindset to think anything clearly. We should all pray for him because from what I've seen on that show the brother needs intensive help!!! Please everybody pray for him.

IT IS WHAT IT IS!! NO ONE FORCED DMX TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. HE COULD OF LIED AND SAID NO OR JUST REFUSED TO ANSWER THE QUESTION. HE CAME OFF AS EXACTLY WHAT HE IS A PERSON WITH DRUG PROBLEMS.

He definitely needs help. But Iyana, Dr Drew or even Dr. Phil can't help him until he realizes that he needs help. Hopefully it'll happen before it's too late (ie. Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Chris Farley, John Belushi, etc, etc, etc.........)
