DMX Says Oprah’s Own Network Tricked Him To Do The Interview With Iyanla Vanzant [VIDEO]
DMX believes Oprah's OWN Network tricked him on his episode of ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life.’
During the season premiere of Iyanla Vanzant’s, ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ on Oprah’s Own Network, Iyanla sat down with DMX for an explosive interview. Iyanla Vanzant sat down with DMX and his son Xavier for a no holds-bar interview that focused on the rappers addiction to drugs, women, his marriage and relationship with his children.
During the one-on-one, X was brutally frank about his career, drug use and womanizing, etc. The conversation brought a whirlwind of emotions to the forefront, especially when his son Xavier came into the picture. At one point X’s behavior got a so erratic and Iyanla even asks if he’s “high.”
Since the interview aired, it’s gone viral on the internet and now X is screaming foul play. According to TMZ, DMX believes Oprah and her OWN Network were dishonest about their intentions in setting up the interview. X said, “Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings. That lady is toxic. My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can."
According to the rapper, he willingly agreed to do the touchy interview but said Vanzant threw him a curve ball by speaking on topics they never settled on prior to filming. X feels the interview made him look bad and claims that Iyanla was only supposed to ask about his addiction to women — not drugs — and the questions were never cleared beforehand.
Ironically enough, X is seeking legal action and wants his episode to be removed from airing on Oprah's Own Network or any other network for that matter.
After the interview aired Iyanla wrote an “open” letter to DMX. Click here to see and hear it.
