Judge Orders DMX to Cough Up $1.5M
Troubled rapper DMX has been ordered to pay Monique Wayne, the mother of his son, $1.5 million for defamation of character. In an interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, DMX claimed Wayne's pregnancy was the result of sexual assault. "She raped me," the rapper said in the article. "DNA says it is [my child]. I don't know. If I did [have sex with her] I would remember. It ain't like she's a pretty girl."
Wayne gave birth and won a paternity suit in 2004. She fought back against the rapper's rude and false remarks and filed a $6 million lawsuit in 2006.
"It's not so much the price, it's the point I wanted to get across," Wayne told the New York Post. "Let him think about what he's going to say before he says it."
