DMX could give the Duggar family a run for their money.
The Yonkers-born rapper, who remains in the ICU in a “vegetative state” after a drug overdose, is now surrounded by many of his children – some of whom were seen on a mass guard outside the hospital – as they say their “last goodbye” to their father.But with COVID-19 restrictions at White Plains Medical Center, only one child can see their ailing father at a time, reports the Daily Mail.
This means that it can take up to 15 visits for him to see all his children.
The rapper “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem”, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has not only been productive in the rap game, but also in the offspring game ̵
The 50-year-old told GQ that he even has a biblical verse about being a creature tattooed on his neck. “Exodus 1: 7,” he said in 2019. “It says, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, so that your children will inherit the world.'”
This verse also inspired the name of his youngest child with his longtime partner, Desiree Lindstrom. Their son Exodus was born in 2016, but details about his other children are a bit sparse. That same year, “X”, as fans call him, confirmed to “The Breakfast Club” that he has 15 children with a total of nine different women. At the time, he was unsure if all of his offspring had ever met.
“Some of them have met others. I’m not a whole piece of s – t, ”he told the radio program. “I do not have children in the same county. Yes, I slipped up. I have a couple in New York; I have a couple in Cali. ”
Asked how he “chooses” who he wants to “breed with”, DMX, who claims to be a deacon, said, “I’m like a dog. I sniff my ass, I rock with my tail.”
In 2013, he filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, according to the Associated Press, citing approx. $ 1.3 million in child support for 10 children he became a father.
X has been in and out of court over the years as he fought for custody of his large fry. Most of his flocks have flown under the radar despite speaking the famous, raspy “Where the Hood At?” rapper and actor in films like 2000s “Romeo Must Die” as their patriarch.
The post has reached out to DMX’s reps for comment.
Exodus Simmons, 5
DMX and now fiancé Lindstrom share Exodus, which was born in 2016.
“It’s a new beginning,” he told GQ about naming his son after the Bible book. Exodus speaks to beginnings. He was a new beginning. ”
Lindstrom’s social media accounts are full of happy family photos, including one with DMX and his now 5-year-old son in Santa hats.
Aaliyah, about 10
DMX also has a daughter named after the late singer Aaliyah Haughton, who died in 2001, a fact he revealed in 2011 about BET’s “106 & Park” while honoring the 10th anniversary of Haughton’s death. DMX and Haughton were co-stars in 2000’s “Romeo Must Die” alongside Jet Li.
“This is my own personal, special tribute to Aaliyah,” he said as he brought his infant daughter on camera.
“This is Aaliyah,” says the proud father as he cradles the baby. “It’s my newest baby and I named her after Aaliyah because it was so special she was to me.”
“Know that you are named after an angel,” he says to the child whose mother is unknown.
He was a proud father on stage in 2012 during a show when he brought his daughter Aaliyah up for the audience to see.
Xavier Simmons, 28
Before Lindstrom, DMX was married to Tashera Simmons from 1999 to 2014, and they had four children together. One is 28-year-old Xavier, who has starred in movies and written a book.
Tacoma Simmons, 21
Tashera and DMX’s son Tacoma is 21 years old and lists himself as a “musical composer” on his Instagram, which is private. In 2019, his proud mother shared a photo that sent him out to college.
Sean Simmons, 18
Sean Simmons does not have a public social media account, but Tashera Simmons has shared photos of her 18-year-old son on her Instagram page.
Ros Mary Ella Simmons, 15
The daughter of Tashera Simmons and rapper, Praise Mary Ella Simmons, is turning 16, according to IMDb, which has her birthday listed as April 18, 2005. Her mother shared photos of her for her 2019 birthday on Instagram.
DMX and Tashera Simmons appeared on season 1 of VH1’s “Couples Therapy” in 2012 before their split, revealing that he had out of wedlock and other out of wedlock children. That year, she confirmed to Essence that he had had six children outside of their marriage, but did not elaborate further.
The rapper “Slippin ‘” became the father of a child with Monique Wayne in 2004, and a DNA test proved he was the father. In 2008, DMX was ordered to pay Wayne $ 1.5 million in damages after he was accused of defamation, false statements and “unreasonable publicity” about her.
“I’m a single parent, as far as I know,” Wayne said at the time.
He also reportedly has two children with ex Yadira Borrego, who recently shared photos of a couple of young people with DMX on stage. “Less left for a major to come back! God got you, your family got you, the kids got you, I got you !! The world got you !! Let’s go, ”she wrote Sunday with photos matching press photos taken during a 2019 concert in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She also shared a photo the night of the show and wrote, “Amazing show My babies love their dad so much.”
Borrego was seen on Monday night shift in the crowd along with her fiancé and ex-wife and shared photos from the vigilante in her Instagram stories. She also shared a photo of her children and some of X’s other children with the caption “Siblings.”
It even looks like DMX’s son is following in his footsteps as a rapper. Borrego shared a video of the young rapper declaring his name is Lil ‘Smoke, on her YouTube page. In another video, she revealed that the boy is 9 years old after he said his father met her “because of her appearance.”
According to Rolling Out, he should also have had a child with another woman in 2008. In January, DMX posted about his “daughter” and her new song and linked to the Instagram handle @sonovah_junior. This account sent pictures of the rapper with a young girl with the caption: “I love you dad.” An Instagram account that appears to be the young girl’s mother’s page shows the same photo along with a video behind the scenes during a DMX show.
