According to TMZ, DMX was reportedly sentenced to a year behind bars for tax evasion. His first three years following release will be supervised.

“X addressed the judge directly Wednesday in the NYC courtroom, and took responsibility for his actions,” TMZ writes. “He said he was too old to be doing the things he’s doing, and admitted he hasn’t been thinking straight.”

Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein, whose office represents Cruz, told The Washington Post he’s concerned.

“The letters shake me up because they are written by regular, everyday teenage girls from across the nation,” he said. “That scares me. It’s perverted.”

“It seems in some way a celebration of the rapidly changing world we live in,” Coel said. “But with the constant reshaping of our technological and political world, comes a growing need to shine a light and be vigilant rather than complacent about the future of our industry. I feel honoured to contribute to this debate on such a prestigious stage.”

Clap for her.
