DMX Says Iyanla Made His Life Worse


On Saturday night DMX appeared on the season premiere of Iyanla: Fix My Life.

Now that the show has aired DMX says Iyanla did the opposite of fix his life...

 DMX's spokesperson tells AllHipHop,
“DMX agreed to be a guest on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ with the understanding that she would be helping his relationships with his 10 children. When he arrived for the taping, most of the content was focused on his struggles with drugs and poor parenting. 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.“

Ten kids? That's a lot of mouths to feed.

his new "worse" image probably matches the reality of his life better.

That's why he is where he is now, he wants to shift blame towards everyone else and he refuses to accept responsibility for what's wrong in his life.

Darkman X needs to clean up himself. He is an extreme addict. Whatever is causing him to self destruct He needs to sit that shit down and walk away from it. I hate even listening to him speak because he talks like he raps. Mix that with him being high and what looks like, struggling to hold it together. He looks like He just wants to fall down on the floor and pass out.
Fags contributed to his demise because he spoke out against their booty penetrating ways

R IN NYC SAYS:

Surely he knew what to expect by going on this show. He must be on the pipe if he thought he would just roll up in there acting out and talkin' greasey and everything was just gonna be all hugs and smooches. DMX needs serious help that even Iyanla can't provide. Has this man ever heard of a condom?......oh let me guess.....he can't get hard with a condom because that's the top excuse for 99% of the brothas in NYC. No wonder AIDS/HIV is running rampant in this city.

"Iyanla did not ‘fix’ DMX’s life just made his imageSTOPRIGHTTHERE!

Maybe next time, Earl should come prepared to actually work on his relationship with the kids and not be so much worried about his fucked up "image". Better yet, if you really want to repair these relationships, the last place you're gonna accomplish that is willfully having your celebrity exploited on some fuckin TV show.

I will say that Iyanla does talk and interrupt too fuckin much and seems to wanna be the centerpiece of the show rather than the facilitator of it's SUPPOSED purpose. When will niggas learn that TV people serve the RATINGS first, and relish these confrontations like the one Iyanla and X had. Real talk, she seen the nigga over-heating but seemed to keep prodding when she shoulda just shut the fuck up and observed where the man's conversation with his son was gonna go.

*Sigh
I wish more people would start being more responsible and accountable for their decisions and behavior

His son is more of a man than him. I respect his son is saying he wants a healthy relationship with X.....to which X agreed. Then his son said that means being clean of drugs b/c you can't have a healthy relationship if you're toxic. Then X couldn't handle that saying he's putting a condition on his love. I respect that young man for saying I will not tolerate you as a drug addict in my life. Way to go young brother.

And no one has the power to make your life worse...it was already bad off and Iyanla just put the magnifying glass on it. Besides was anything revealed that we didn't already know about X?

This interview should have been about him facing his problems with his Mom first.

I agree with DMX, at the end of the day he's a grown ass man & all he wants is an unconditional relationship. His wife and son, along with everyone else, needs to take a look in the mirror themselves. If you listened to DMX defending his actions, he mentions that son always wanting money.

That son looks like the mother. Iyliyanvaia had no right yelling at him like that, so he should've cussed her out. Then at the intro of this segment, Iylivaiania pleas to the public to reach out and help him like he's some psycho killer.

I'm not a fan of DMX, but it was interesting to watch how humble and honest he is about his issues. At the end of the day, he still a talented figure with a bunch of vapors on his back. Didn't know he's the only R&B artist who had 5 top hits on the charts at once or some record breaking moment.

Not a fan of Iyliaviaiya, ever since she scammed the IRS back in the day with her orgainized religion. Taking peoples money and not paying taxes, that's why the big "O" fell out with her ass, but made up when she saw a need to save ratings for this whack ass network.

Hope he finds peace.

He has no accountability for his actions. He is probably doing is other kids a favor by not being around, I hate to say/

Jesus Loves You.... This I Know! Tracy~ said...

Jesus Christ is the Answer, Jesus Christ is the answer to (All Life's Problems). Got problems? Jesus has answers!! Repent! Acts 3:19 King James Bible Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
**
(Message) “Now it’s time to change your ways! Turn to face God so he can wipe away your sins, pour out showers of blessing to refresh you, and send you the Messiah he prepared for you, namely, Jesus. The first thing God does when we (Repent) is to bring us back from captivity by refreshing our weary hearts (Jeremiah 31:25). He refreshes us by removing the burden of (guilt and shame and darkness that sin creates within us). God refreshes us by setting our hearts at peace and showering us with Mercy. And he refreshes us by assuring us that we are still his beloved sons and daughters, members of his family and coheirs with Christ. ◄ Psalm 118:8 ► King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. God Bless~~

She didn't "fix it" because he wasn't open to it You can't be guarded, closed & high and expect therapy to work for you.

I agree with 10:44 he needs to face his issues with his mother. How could she put a seven year old child in a home. There must of been something going on back then.

You can't 'fix' someone's life...they have to be given the tools to do so but in order to move forward you must pull the toxic roots of the past and own up to your errors.

Grow up DMX

Totally co-sign with 11:27 a.m. What did he think she was going to do, wave a magic wand or something? If he didn't want to get aired out, he shouldn't have gone on her show.

@Lee Wallace (11:14).....AMEN!!!

He said he thought he was gonna get help with his 10 kids??? On the show, he said said he asked for her help with his addiction to women...he did not mention his kids. I saw a very sad and troubled man, one in denial and one certified ego-maniac. I was exhausted just watching him, and wondered how in the world people could stand to be around him for any extended amount of time if he behaves that way on a regular basis.

He needs detox, tough-love, and a regular therapist. He seems like the type to use relationships of any kind as a crutch.

@10:43 that young MAN behaved very admirably. Not many people can confront a loved one and say in a loving way "cut the bs or we can't have a relationship". Especially a child to a parent.

Anonymous said...

the comments are too funny! but its sad because no matter what her agenda is or how many ratings she wants, there is nothing anybody can do if they are not willing to open up and learn how to put in the work. clearly he is no where near ready for that.

Well first no one can fix anyone's life except the person living it...so DMX "Fix your life"

The way he talked irritated the ish outta me!!! He talked so fast I had to keep rewinding my DVR to understand wtf he was saying! He needs to stop his ish! Iyanla was right! He needs to detox and go to rehab and stop blaming other people for his issues! She needed to yell @ him!

Anonymous said...

UMMM NO BOO BOO.....YOU MADE YOURSELF LOOK BAD!!! SHE DID HER JOB BY PRESENTING YOUR ISSUES TO YOUR FACE. YOU DIDN'T DO YOURS BY OWNING UP TO THEM AND THATS WHY SHE COULDN'T FIX YOUR LIFE. IF YOU DON'T WANT THE HELP, SHE CAN'T FORCE IT, LET ALONE GIVE IT TO YOU!!

I have nothing but compassion for him - that is the true Christian way.

I agree with the person on that YT video. This is something that should have been done over several months then televised. Yeah he put himself out there, but she saw that he was high. How can you reason with someone who is high?

THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN "FIX" YOUR LIFE IS YOU!

Anonymous said...

Well said Anon@1:05. As Iyanla has stated, if you want to fix your life, you have to be willling to do the work. DMX wasn't willing, able or ready to do the work at that time. He said he was going to keep smoking weed and drinking; that sounded like a wrap to me.

I did like the initial interaction between DMX and Xavier though. He kissed and hugged his son; that was sweet; to see DMX actually show love to his son like that.

Anonymous said...

DMX is the only person that can help DMX. His son was right to tell him that he needed to be be clean in order to have a healthy relationship. Like Ilyana said, ask for what you want, you are worth it. DMX has spent over 1/2 his life high. He needs to clean up. You can't reason with anyone that is high. Almost everything leads to an argument. Sober minds need to meet sober minds. DMX was not willing to choose sobriety and his family. He needs to man up. It was a shame when he told his son that before he came clean he would see him dead first.......... smh

Anonymous said...

why the hell do you get high knowing you're going on 'fix my life?' If that's not a cry for help I don't know what is.

Addiction to women isn't his problem, its just addiction. He clearly has no coping mechanisms. I feel a little bad for him, he seems far past redemption. I get the impression he's just like "whatever, my life is completely messed up so I may a well just get high until the end."

Typical black man blame black women for all your problems. Maybe I missed sometime but I didn't see Iyanla put a gun up to his head and make him do the interview. He knew what was going to happen when he a agreed to come on her show. X gets no sympathy from me.

Anonymous said...

X deserves empathy, not sympathy, for all that he has been through in his life. Damaged people damage other people. That being said, he has aired his stuff out on reality tv for quite some time now. I think we are all familiar with his tragic story and how he came up with no love really. He has admitted his issues with addictions, but he is not ready to clean up. On top of that, he seems to have some mental issues--like a typical bi-polar with the highs and extreme lows. Not only did he seem high, he may have been manic as well. Most, if not all, bi-polar persons self medicate to feel normal. Many issues and unfortunately, he may leave here before he gets the REAL help that he needs...

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry but that son, as DMX said, wants nothing but MONEY. He called him up and didn't say 'hey, how are you doing' Just 'can I have some money.

BTW - that son cannot sing worth a damn, while he was trying to get his 5-minutue shot at fame in. Wishing DMX well.

Anonymous said...

@3:16 I couldn't have said it better. He needs real help. I feel that going on reality shows is harmful for a non-addicted, mentally stable person and disastrous for someone like him.

Does anyone remember what happened to Dana Plato (Different Strokes) after they dogged her out on Howard Stern? She went home and died of an overdose.

I pray that this brother breaks down and gets the expert and spiritual help that he needs.

Thanks, who ever posted this link. So true!

Cocaine is a helluva of a drug. It can have you making everyone else around you the bad person, while the bad person is really the so called victim. No rehab will help him right now because he doesn't see anything wrong with what he is doing. He is on the blame game right now and until he comes to grip with himself, he will be the broke down shell of a human that you see. I'm glad that Tashera is finally opening up her eyes and getting on with her life, she so needs some real help.

Can you imagine the comments alone if DMX was a BLACK WOMAN with ten children not even mentioning the drug addiction. The double standards just WOW!!!!

Anonymous said...

Main thing. Don't try and argue with a crack head, they are not hearing you AT ALL. Even when they get clean they still retain crackish ways and still can't really be trusted.

Anonymous said...

He is truly gone - SHE made him look bad???... He's the one who was behaving that way - he did that to himself... so sad he was one of my favorites... He's the Lyndsay Lohan of the black community - so much potential just wasted and he's oblivious cause he's too busy blaming everybody (his background, the music industry, the man, Ilyana, Leprechauns) - anyone but himself for his poor life choices...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
As far as using the footage. I'm sure a lot of papers were signed before hand and that Iyanla's ppl won't waste their time without doing so. This is their business and their money.

And let me add that Iyanla wasn't needed to fix DMX's problems, but Jesus is. DMX needs Jesus. Someone who can fix anything, including taking care of all his demons and freeing him completely. Making him a new man. Amen!

First, isnt Iyanla's relationship with her own kids fucked up? Also, how exactly can he work on his relationship with his kids if he doesn't address his drug issue? I mean, who wants a drug abuser for a father?

Anonymous said...

DMX need to have a seat with his irrelevant mis guided ass!!! Why the hell you keep coming on all these reality shows, then have an attitude with folks afterwards??? You need REAL professional help away from TV, fans, etc. And some of these post, ya'll killing me dogging Iyanla, like his ass wasn't thirstin' for some cash. He know what the deal is when you sign up for these shows! If you dont want to be critiqued or ridiculed, dont come. Regardless if you were invited or you sought to come on willingly.

10:44 Fuck this bum niggah. DO you know how many women have had some majorly fucked up lives and they seem to move on and deal with it one way or another. Men are so fucking bitch made.

If this was a famous woman,she would be called everything in the fucking book and blamed. This bitch doesn't care about his damn kids. He turned to drugs and now wants everyone else to fix his shit for him. Black men need to get it together.

These people with a penis need to become men and stop blaming everyone. Then,their butt buddies and homies defend them and black dumb ass bird bitches take up for him. This man has drunk driven and put others lives in jeopardy folks.

I want people like him to get help and get better,but none of these losers want to work for it. They want some woman to come along and fuck up her life to help him. He doesn't like women either. The shit he says....smdh
