DMX Problems Prevented Tour?
The booking agency in question -- a company called Heavy Rotation -- filed the lawsuit in New York, claiming it struck an exclusive year-long deal with DMX in 2011 to book the rapper's concerts ... anywhere on the planet.
But according to the lawsuit, DMX was plagued with legal problems from the start -- a traffic violation in August, and two nasty child support disputes ... which led to a lien on the rapper's passport, preventing him from performing overseas.
According to the suit, HR bent over backwards to fix the legal issues -- coughing up nearly a hundred grand to cover bail, child support, and a slew of other legal bills ... hoping it would clear the way for the tour, a task that included lifting the lien on X's passport.
But HR claims its efforts were in vain -- because DMX continued to cause problems, hiring outside management that tried to book DMX on shows within the United States ... violating X's agreement with HR. On top of that, X couldn't resolve his passport issues ... and all concerts had to be canceled.
