Star magazine reports DMX had an unbelievable number of demands while filming ‘Cradle 2 The Grave’. X insisted on having five relatives on the payroll at very generous salaries – some as nail techs to perform manicures for him, others as bodyguards. The rapper also got a Malibu home to stay in for the duration of filming. The house was used as a party palace causing DMX to miss several days of shooting, costing the studio plenty. None of the behaviour hurt his standing with the studio though, as they signed him up for a three picture deal afterwards.
