RAPPER DMX IS CHARGED WITH TAX FRAUD!

DMX has been charged with tax fraud in the US after allegedly hiding millions of dollars in earnings.

The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested in New York on Thursday and appeared in court yesterday (Monday).

Law enforcement officers claim he owes millions of dollars in taxes from the sale of songs like 2003’s X Gon’ Give It To Ya.

The rapper has been given a reprieve as he is no longer on lockdown in the NYC area … but only if he’s traveling to make a dime.

The rapper — with an entourage about 20 deep — showed up in court Monday for a hearing to see if the judge would lift travel restrictions imposed after his arrest for tax evasion. DMX pled not guilty to 14 counts of tax evasion and as part of his bail wasn’t allowed to leave the NYC area.

The judge now says he CAN leave NYC, but he’ll need to file a formal request with the court before he can bounce.

TMZ broke the story … The U.S. Attorney’s Office in NYC said the rapper owes the IRS $1.7 million after concealing several years’ worth of income.

He faces up to 44 years in prison if he is found guilty on all 14 counts.
