Xzibit is a rapper all the way, a ride-or-die type of man. Fans know him from his illustrious career as an artist, but also as the host of MTV’s show, Pimp My Ride, which made him a successful entertainer in both spheres, television, and music.
In the past, Xzibit stated that he never thought he would get married, but ended up finding the woman of his dreams in 2001 before he embarked on a tour to support his album.
In an interview on BET’s Man Cave, Xzibit stated that his wife, Krista Joiner, was talking about buying a house, having kids, and settling down, whereas for the rapper, well, his career was just beginning.
The rapper joked, “do you have any idea how much a*s I’m about to get because of this tour?” Either way, Krista ended up staying with the rapper through thick and thin, and they subsequently got married back in 2014.
In fact, the same night he got married, the authorities detained the rapper and took him to jail for a DUI. In a report from TMZ, the couple got hitched at a venue near Laguna Beach in California, before they had their wedding reception party.
After he left the reception with his new wife, the Pimp My Ride host was pulled over by the police for speeding and driving under the influence.
A spokesperson who spoke on behalf of the LAPD said that “it started as a ‘driving under the influence investigation’ which ended with the arrest of Alvin.”
However, the incident didn’t phase him, as the rapper took to Instagram to express how great his wedding was. He said it was “nothing short of amazing,” on account of he and his wife being surrounded by friends and family.
