Tashera Simmons shocked both her husband of 14 years, DMX, and viewers of VH1′s reality show ‘Couples Rehab’ when she revealed that she wanted a divorce from the troubled rapper. Speaking with Essence.com she made it clear that she is ready to move beyond the confines of X’s shadow and into her own light.
Essence: So, you’ve officially decided to file for divorce, right?
Tashera Simmons: Yes and no. There’s so much to be decided on, so we’re actually in the process of filling now. Our lawyers want to give us advice. On the show, he was really stunned and he couldn’t believe it. I don’t know why. After going through all the stuff we did — after he did all the things he has done and after us going through therapy — I was just like, I couldn’t leave [the show] without asking for a divorce.
In all his infinite crackhead wisdom, DMX let his refusal to see it for the gworls in hip hop (namigly Drake) be heard loud and clear during a visit to Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club this week. And everlasting life was obtained by all who heard the good gospel. Here is a strand of pearls per Miss Jia:
I don’t like anything about Drake. I don’t like his fucking voice. I don’t like anything he talks about. I don’t like his face. I don’t like the way he walks. I don’t like nothing. I don’t like his haircut.
Scheduled to begin taping in December, one man janitorial service DMX and his estranged wife Tashera Simmons have agreed to appear on upcoming VH1 reality show ‘Relationship Rehab’ in the hopes of getting their failed marriage back on track, TMZ reports. And just so you know, comparing their marriage to a bowl of Kibbles N’ Bits being kicked over during a drug raid at The Carter wouldn’t be very Christian like. God doesn’t like ugly.
The Simmons separated in July 2010 after 20 years and four kids together . . . yet they are still best friends, insists the source – and that’s why they want to give it another shot. We’re told DMX feels Tashera is “one of the only people [he] truly ever loved and has been down with him through thick and thin.”
The thin? DMX cheated on his wife left and right – and even fathered six children during his extra-marital conquests.
DMX and drugs. The two just can’t seem to see eye to eye. The troubled rapper was arrested on Tuesday in Arizona for five counts of violating his probation on drug charges.
“He admitted to using cocaine, so he’s back in our jail,” said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. “I think it’s about time to give him hard time.” The get-tough sheriff said if the rapper is serious about kicking his drug habit, the Arizona jail system — where X has already logged time on animal cruelty and drug possession charges — could help him get clean
During his court appearance he did what any of you other self respecting cousins would do and showed the fuck out. This should be a Tyler Perry movie.
Now that Tashera is out of his life DMX doesn’t have to waste his dollars on buying Feed The Children trucks filled with cans of Puppy Chow and chew toys but his new bitch is probably stressing him out about the latest designer goods. The things people put former crackheads through to make a quick buck. Don’t tell Frankie about this please. [source]
My friend in the head, DMX [don’t judge] was spotted recently at nightclub looking like the mangy dog on the side of the road that hasn’t been fed in days. Sweating, popping, locking, and dropping in VIP with an unknown broad, he turned the crowd on and gave the kids canine fever with a short performance set.
I’m actually jealous cause he seems to have it all: kids, a home, a beautiful brown skin Great Dane named Tasheera [owww!] and a plethora of nut-bucket hoes at his beck and call. It seems that the pitbulls [I’m looking at you Teyana Taylor] are having a fabulous week.
