The premiere episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life was electric. The self-help guru took on DMX in a 90-minute show that left viewers everywhere shocked at his behavior and actions.

Immediately following its air date, DMX's publicist issued a statement saying Vanzant "made his image worse."

Vanzant hasn't spoken to DMX since leaving Yonkers, New York until now. "I'm not going to give up on you," said Vanzant looking directly into the camera. "I will not stand by and watch my bother die."
