NEW YORK (AP):

Rapper DMX has been for failure to pay child support just as he was about to perform at Radio City Music Hall.

A spokesman for the New York City Sheriff's Department reported that the 44-year-old rapper was taken into custody last Friday for several "issues outstanding".

The spokesman said those included US$400,000 worth of unpaid child support, a warrant issued by the city of White Plains for bail jumping, and a robbery complaint out of Newark, New Jersey. No charges have been filed in the Newark case.

The rapper's real name is Earl Simmons. He had been scheduled to perform at the Master of Ceremony concert at Radio City.
