'Friend' Takes Car Owned By DMX, Girlfriend; Does Not Return It

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Rapper D.M.X. also known as Earl Simmons, is looking for his car after a man drove off with it and did not return.

According to a report obtained from the Spartanburg Sheriff's Office, Simmons and his girlfriend, Desiree Lindstrom, were trying to sell a 1978 Buick Regal that they own. One of their friends, only known as 'Lonny,' told the couple that they knew someone who would buy car and they allowed him to take it to sell it, along with a duplicate title for the vehicle. 

However, the car has not been returned to the couple, and Lindstrom told deputies that 'Lonny' had changed his phone number and they have been unable to find him. They were attempting to get his last name from another friend, deputies state in the report.

Earlier this month, Simmons was arrested at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and charged with driving under suspension. It was just the latest in a series of run-ins with law enforcement that he has had over the past two years.
