DMX’s Family has warned fans to beware of potential scammers trying to profit off the rapper’s death.

There have been alleged rumors that DMX’s loved ones are in need of financial help to pull together his funeral service, and TMZ reports that the rapper’s family states that is simply not the truth.

His family issued a statement on Monday after rumors started circulating online that someone had purchased the masters to his music.

“There have been a few rumors following our loved one, Earl Simmons’, passing that we’d like to clear up. No one has bought Earl’s masters,” his family said.

“Additionally, we are not selling any merch or raising money for Earl’s funeral. If anyone is requesting … money for his funeral please be aware the person is a scammer. We will keep the public posted on funeral/memorial service arrangements.”
