“Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings," says the rapper.
If you tuned into Iyanla Vanzant’s highly buzzed about episode of Fix My Life featuring DMX, then you witnessed the heated discussions about the rapper’s drug addiction past, infidility and poor parenting—and now he wants this footage removed from the OWN network.
Immediatley after the show aired, his publicist released the folllowing statement: “Iyanla did not ‘fix’ DMX’s life, just made his image worse, and does not have DMX’s personal written consent to use the footage.” And, while Iyanla recorded a heartfelt open letter to DMX as a follow-up to their interview, that wasn’t enough for the rapper.
According to TMZ, DMX has mentioned taking legal action since Iyanla was never supposed to address his drug addiction and issues with women. “Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings,” stated DMX, “That lady is toxic.”
