*DMX was sentenced Tuesday to six months in jail for violating his probation – however, a rep for the VH1 reality series “Celebrity Rehab” appeared to have convinced the judge that a stint on the show would be a better alternative.

TMZ.com is reporting that DMX admitted to five separate probation violations when he used illegal drugs.

During the hearing, an official from the Pasadena Recovery Center gave the judge a letter from the show’s facilitator Dr. Drew Pinsky, asking permission to treat X at his facility … in lieu of jail.

According to TMZ, “the judge seemed open to sending X to the PRC.”
