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.
