Tashera Simmons Says DMX Had Four Children Outside Of Marriage

 

Tashera Simmons is dishing out details on her tumultuous years of marriage to rapper DMX.

The now divorced mother is moving past her ties to the New York emcee to focus on her upcoming reality show and tell-all book.

As previously reported, the book titled Tashera Simmons…Strength of A Woman is described as a “positive tell-all” chronicling her life with X and the family they raised together.

Unfortunately for the Simmons matriarch, their family expanded even further without her knowledge after she learned that X had fathered four children outside of their marriage.

Speaking on the her husband’s infidelity she tells VIBE, that she originally only knew about one of his children; a child he fathered in Maryland whose mother he later was ordered to pay $1.5 million in damages for telling Sister 2 Sister magazine that she “raped him” to get pregnant.

Despite the drama Tashera says she opted to stay until she became overwhelmed with the numerous child support suits that were continuing to be filed against him.

She tells VIBE,

“He had four other children out of our marriage and I didn’t know. I only found out about one, and it was the one in Maryland that was public. It was all over the news and I still was gonna try to make it work [but] after we did the show Soul of a Man, I guess the women felt some kind of way because he was doing a lot of paying child support behind my back and giving them money without me knowing anything. So once he came out in interviews saying this is my only daughter and this is my family I guess they started feeling some kind of way and they started sending lawyers and all these child support suits to my house and that wasn’t acceptable. I just felt like with the drugs, that in itself is mentally draining. I felt like since we’ve been together for so long I didn’t want to give up on him.”


Simmons is set to star in her own reality show, detailing her life without the famous rapper.

    Who cares, she knew he wasn’t a faithful man. I have all the sympathy in the world for a woman who gets cheated on once and didn’t know. DMX has cheated multiple times, and you stayed so you get what you get. She may not have known about all the kids but she knew he was cheating and chose to stay anyway.

    • greyeyedgirl

      she’s better than me, because there is no way in west hell would I have stayed. you step out; you stay out. guaranteed whenever you return, you will to an empty house, because I will be GONE! My first husband cheated; when I found out, I stepped off, kept it moving and didn’t look back.

      nothing means nothing if the respect is gone…

      to me and with RESPECT is a REQUIREMENT if you don’t have it then what’s the point?

    I will definitely buy & read the book. But a tv show, heck nah! Trust DMX has more than 4 kids & that show will end up being like the Frankie & Neffe show & more & more kids will come out….

    Why did she stay with him? He has a destructive personality. Forget trying to make it work. WTH!

  • realistic

    I am going to go out on a limb here and assume that none of you have been in longterm relationships and are speaking on something you know nothing about. Walking away is easier said than done. You don’t know what you would do until you are in that situation.

  • summerhill ga

    did she say “why would i leave you because you’re on crack” on his documentary?…accepted crack but not other children?

  • BobTyranT

    What these bi***es want from a n***a?! Hold ya head X! Itz hard being black and gifted cause everybody want a piece of you, and there is SO many beautiful women out there in tha world, G!

  • AllergictoBullish

    It amazes me how so many people are blaming this woman for standing beside her man. She loved this man, took vows with this man, and wanted to uphold those vows. How dare these people bash her for doing so. Who gives a damn about how she looks. Everyone reaches their breaking point and she reached hers after a long time of trying to stick it out and make it work. She deserves the credit for that. She deserves the credit for standing my her HUSBAND through the infedelity and the drugs. She didn’t walk out on him because that would be too damn easy, but people this day and age do not know or understand the value of a MARRIAGE!!!!!!!

  • JENNIFER

    FIRST OF ALL PEOPLE, SHE KNEW OF ONLY ONE CHILD. HE IS THE ONE AT FAULT. MOST MEN WILL CHEAT AND THE WIVES KNOW BUT ACCEPT IT TO A DEGREE. THIS MAN HAD FOUR OUTIDE CHILDREN. YES, AFTER ALL OF THAT, HE HAS DISRESPECTED THE RELATIONSHIP AND WENT OUT OF “THEIR” RESPECTED RELATIONSHIP. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN RULES WITHIN THEIR RELATIONSHIPS THAT IS TOLERABLE AND ACCEPTED. THERE IS BARELY A PERFECT RELATIONSHIP OUT THERE. MANY VALUES THAT WE ONCE HAVE ARE NO LONGER. SO PLEASE, LEAVE THIS WOMAN ALONE. DMX FKD UP. HE WENT OUTSIDE THEIR BOUNDARIES. SHE IS A STRONG WOMEN BY STANDING BY HER HUSBAND AND KEEPING THE FAMILY TOGETHER. THAT IS WHAT WE DO.

    thats a uglyyyyyyyy woman, sheim look like the husband and DMX the wifey.my s h i t terds look better then her. where the kidz at.he aint cute

    • Yvette McClain

      There is nothing ugly about a black woman who stays with a crack head cheating man. She didn’t say she didn’t know he was cheating, but without condoms, that’s sick. HIV is a mother, and nobody wants that. She’s far from stupid because look who’s getting the last laugh. Get paid Sis…I love DMX, but when it comes to my black nubian sisters, they come first. Shame on all of you who think different. Ugly to you, but apparently not ugly to DMX. In and out of jail every yr. I bet he is missing her now

  • PROFE-CHANEL77

    Tashera is the epitomy of a strong women. I respect the her walk of life.. and her dedication to her marriage…..most ppl would say “she stupid or crazy” to stay but marriage vows like “til death do part” is hard to live by……Some men dont know how to stand next to a women like her and therefore are intimidated and instead of being good to her, they treat the women like issh…..DMX had a hard life and all and is a drug user,but the man knows GOD and thats why he is going through so much…Hes having a spiritual; warfare within himself, and im am pretty sure Tashera knows that! Good luck Girl and I will network with other to buy your book…cuz you have an interesting story to tell…. to women that go through the same, but without the money, cars, and fame!
