Can Dr. Drew save DMX from six months in the slammer? That's the rumor going around, and if it's even half true, it's the most ridiculous rehab story we've heard.
Okay, second most ridiculous. Evander Holyfield seeking out Dr. Phil after allegedly beating his wife, then getting indignant and storming out? That's gotta be first.
In any event, DMX was just sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation. His first arrest of 2010 took place last week after he was busted with drugs.
Seeing as DMX comprises approximately half our celebrity mug shot gallery, he was on probation at the time, and thus violated it, leading to his return to prison.
But rehab could save him yet.
Dr. Drew: DMX's trusted savior and confidant?
DMX admitted to five probation violations at his hearing last week, claiming they were the result of using illegal drugs. Here's where the Celebrity Rehab doc comes in.
During the hearing, a rep from the Pasadena Recovery Center gave the judge a letter from Dr. Drew Pinsky, asking permission to treat X at his facility ... in lieu of jail.
X himself reached out to Dr. Drew upon his arrest. Looks like it worked.
The judge seemed open to the idea, although no decision has been made yet. We can only hope it happens, and that cameras film all of the odd couple's interactions.
