Rapper arrested on warrant

DMX
DeLaurentiis
Malik

The rapper DMX has been arrested again in South Carolina.

Police say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was a passenger in a truck that was stopped late Tuesday for an illegal U-turn in Greer.

Lt. Jim Holcombe says officers arrested Simmons after realizing he had an outstanding warrant for driving under suspension. Police also found marijuana, and Simmons and the driver were charged with simple possession.

Last year, he was charged in Spartanburg County with suspicion of driving without a license.

Simmons was arrested near Phoenix in 2011 after a trooper clocked him driving 102 mph. That followed a prison stint on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing and driving without a license.

Soap stars expecting

Life is imitating art for Kirsten Storms of ABC’s “General Hospital.”

The actress’ character on the daytime drama is in labor this week with her daughter.

In real life, 29-year-old Storms is also pregnant with her first child, due in January, and says it’s a baby girl.

Dad is 33-year-old Brandon Barash, who played Johnny Zacchara on the soap but left the show in April.

Storms and Barash also say they secretly got married in June.

1D singer to wed

One Direction has one less eligible bachelor.

Band member Zayn Malik is engaged to Perrie Edwards of the group Little Mix. They’re both 20.

Edwards was spotted wearing a diamond ring Tuesday at One Direction film premiere “This Is Us” in London.

Edwards’ mother, Debbie, confirmed Wednesday that her daughter and Malik were engaged. Columbia Records confirmed in a statement that “Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private.”

Like boy band One Direction, female trio Little Mix formed on British TV talent show “The X Factor,” winning the competition in 2011. One Direction placed third in 2010.
