White Plains, N.Y. • A federal judge in New York has tossed rapper DMX's bankruptcy filing, making him fair game for creditors.
The Journal News reports (http://lohud.us/1cKu4J2 ) that a bankruptcy judge in White Plains dismissed the 42-year-old rapper's July 29 Chapter 11 filing on Friday.
The hip-hop star's real name is Earl Simmons. The judge's move means he could lose his possessions including his share in a home in suburban Mount Kisco.
Simmons' biggest debt is $1.3 million in child support owed to some of the 10 children he has fathered.
U.S. Trustee Tracy Hope Davis said Simmons failed to provide trustworthy information in his bankruptcy filing.
