DMX'S BABY MAMA WILL HAVE TO WAIT A BIT LONGER FOR HER $1.5 MILLION DEFAMATION CHECK.

Monique Wayne (click on pic to the left to see its full image), the single mother of rapper DMX's illegitimate child will have to wait a little while longer for that $1.5 million judgment she was awarded after filing a defamation suit against the Ruff Ryder who swears up and down and all around that he was raped by Wayne. Last week, Prince George's County Circuit Judge Thomas Smith ruled that DMX (whose real name is Earl Simmons) was not properly served with court papers in the case filed against him by Monique Wayne. After an August 2003 encounter with Simmons, Wayne gave birth to a son by the rapper in April 2004. In a 2006 Sister 2 Sister magazine interview DMX said he was raped while he was sleeping. Wayne, who was not mentioned by name in the story, denied the claim and filed a defamation of character suit, citing "severe emotional distress" as a result of the interview. During a court hearing earlier this year, Wayne said she awoke to find Simmons on top of her, which led to consensual sex. She said she filed the lawsuit because "he lied to the whole world on me" about what happened. The January hearing resulted in Wayne being awarded $1.5 million after Simmons failed to appear.

Attorneys for DMX challenged that claim, saying Wayne failed to properly serve him with lawsuit papers and that the rapper was unaware of the case against him. X's lawyer William "Hassan" Murphy III said the Yonkers MC "looks forward to proving Wayne's allegations to be wrong" if the case continues.
