As was previously reported, a man from New Jersey claims that DMX robbed him at a gas station last Sunday (April 5). According to his story, he recognized the rapper at a gas station in the early-morning hours, approached him and struck up a conversation. After some time, the man says, a member of DMX’s entourage pulled a gun and demanded the man fork over all the money in his pockets–some $3,000. X, according to the account, then hopped into one in a convoy of black SUVs and absconded from the scene. But now, the Yonkers legend’s legal team is calling the whole thing into question. In a statement issued today (April 7), DMX’s lawyer writes:
“He was leaving a show, a very successful show, and he stopped for gas. Four young men approached him for a photo. They took photos and they offered [DMX] drugs. He said no and told them to go…They had an argument and next thing you know, they are accusing him of robbery. Just nonsense.” He went on to refer to the allegations as “completely absurd” and that “anyone who believes it makes no sense at all.”
It remains to be seen what, if any legal repercussions the Yonkers legend will face. XXL will have full details on the investigation as they become available.
