Earlier this month, Earl Simmons was sentenced to a year in prison after violating probation. During sentencing, the judge stated that she believes the Simmons has an undiagnosed mental condition, possibly a bi-polar disorder. Subsequently, X was transferred to a mental health unit in Arizona’s State Prison.
As the Phoenix New Times reports: Arizona Department of Corrections files confirm that DMX was admitted to the Flamenco Mental Health Unit at Alhambra on December 20th.
DMX’s manager, Nakia Walker, did not comment on X’s mental health. She says however, that she wasn’t surprised when X was transferred to a mental health unit.
