Tashera Simmons has four children with DMX
Tashera Simmons and DMX, began dating when they were still teenagers, at 18 years old, and had known each other since the age of eleven. However this young love turned out to have far from a happy ending. While Tashera and DMX were married for over a decade from 1999-2014, for Tashera, this phase of her life was plagued with reports about DMX's infidelity, verbal and psychological abuse.
Tashera and DMX even appeared on VH1's Couples Therapy in 2012, the same year she filed for divorce. However, the actress and reality star in an interview with Essence in 2012 said she felt bad about getting a divorce. She said, "I do still feel bad about getting a divorce, even after everything X put me through because I took my vows very seriously. And I know X is never going to love anyone the way he loves me, and I feel the same way about him."
She went onto add, "But [there] just comes a time, when you give your all, and you know you gave your all, and it's time to move on."
After the divorce, however DMX cut all financial support to his ex-wife and children. In an interview Tashera shares, "When I said, 'it's a wrap,' he said, 'Let me see how you're going to be able to live with no money.' And I thought he was playing, but he was dead serious."
While DMX had four children with Tashera, he then went onto have several other children with other women. He became a father for the fifteenth time in 2016 with his girlfriend Desiree Lindstrom. Tashera and her kids, however, seem to have made it through the tough times.
Tashera recently put up a post on the joys of motherhood, celebrating the birth of her first child with DMX, Xavier. Tashera says, "I am beyond proud of the young man, you've become! Continue to be free! And lead by example."
Tashera now lives in Mount Kisco, New York with her four children, Xavier, Tacoma, Sean and Praise Mary Ella. It seems that faith and family form the bedrocks of her life, judging from her social media posts. DMX is currently in a serious condition, following a heart attack, possibly brought on by a drug overdose, however that has not been confirmed as yet. DMX has battled substance abuse for years and has spent several periods in rehab.
