DMX says he’s sober. After years of battling a drug and alcohol addiction and being arrested too many times to keep track, the one-time rapper claims his newfound self-control is due to his kids.
He told TMZ, “Everyone was taking advantage of me with my finances, trying to put me in the direction to fail. I have 10 kids. I have to drive them in the right direction, so I let the cocaine go. I am on a spiritual road to do right in my life. I am leaving out all negativity and going to stay on the right road to positive.”
His pastor also said, “When [DMX] first came to my church he looked broken, sad, and full of struggle. Now you see a dramatic change. You see that the drugs and alcohol aren’t in his life.”
