And the rapper born Earl Simmons made more than just an appearance, too. The Ruff Ryder probably lit up Iyanla’s ratings with what was probably the most shocking episode to date. It was one of the most emotional episodes as well.
(Anyone with eyes can see that DMX, is a troubled man. Talented, but very troubled.)
From DMX crying over his mother and finding it hard to love just one woman, to telling Iyanla to “Shut the **** up”, in front of his son, this episode is unmissable.
DMX seemed high during the interview, and Iyanla didn’t hesitate to ask him if he was under the influence.

Now watch as DMX also talks about the pressures of the business and how having too much access didn’t help his drug problem.
DMX also reunited with his son and his wife, both of whom he hadn’t seen in months. But as expected, the rapper has a problem with the way he was portrayed.
He released this statement through his representative:
“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,” the statement says. “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”
