DMX has been arrested over unpaid child support shortly before he was due to take the stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The rapper was taken into custody on Friday night for several “outstanding” issues, including $400,000 worth of back child support, a spokesman for the New York City Sheriff’s Department told WPIX-TV.

Other warrants cited him for bail jumping and being an aggravated unlicensed motor vehicle operator.

There was also a criminal complaint in Newark, citing him in an alleged robbery at a gas station back in April. No charges have been filed in that case.

DMX has been arrested multiple times. In 2004 he was famously arrested after allegedly attempting to steal a car at New York’s Kennedy Airport, and he was subsequently fined for several traffic violations.
