DMX threatens to sue Oprah and OWN Network over ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ interview


DMX may take legal action against Oprah Winfrey and her OWN network. The rapper claims that he was tricked by the network and producers of the hit show “Iyanla: Fix My Life.” He said he decided to do the show to discuss his sexual addiction. However, Iyanla Vanzant soon began to question DMX on his drug use and estranged relationship with son, Xavier.

During the raping of the episode, DMX stormed off the set twice. DMX left for a final time after Iyanla encouraged Xavier not to hug him. Moments later, DMX stormed off of the set and yelled at Iyanla.

“Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings,” adding, “That lady is toxic … My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can.”

DMX wants the footage to be removed from the OWN or he will threaten to sue Oprah and the network.

Share your thoughts. Do you think DMX has a legitimate case against Oprah and the OWN network, or will it be a waste of time to take the case to court?
