DMX could give the Duggar family a run for their money.
The Yonkers-born rapper, who remains in ICU in a “vegetative state” after a drug overdose, is now surrounded by many of his children, some of whom were seen at a mass vigil outside the hospital, as they say in its end”. goodbye ”to his dad. But with COVID-19 restrictions at the White Plains Medical Center, only one child can see his sick parent at a time, the Daily Mail reports.
That means it could take you up to 15 visits to see all of your children.
The “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has not only been prolific in the rap game, but also in the offspring game, counting 15 children as the “meat of his flesh.”
The 50-year-old man told GQ that he even has a bible verse about being a procreator tattooed on his neck. “Exodus 1: 7,” he said in 2019. “It says, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and your children will inherit the world.’
That verse also inspired the name of his youngest son with his longtime partner, Desiree Lindstrom. Their son Exodus was born in 2016, but details about his other children are somewhat scarce. That same year, “X”, as fans call him, confirmed to “The Breakfast Club” that he has 15 children with nine different women in total. At the time, he wasn’t sure if all of his children had ever met.
“Some of them have met others. I’m not total shit, ”he told the radio show. “I don’t have children in the same county. Yes, I made a slip. I have some in New York; I have some in Cali. “
When asked how he “chooses” who he wants to “breed” with, DMX, who claims to be a deacon, said, “I’m like a dog. I smell my ass, I wag my tail.”
In 2013, he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, according to the Associated Press, citing about $ 1.3 million in child support owed to 10 children he had.
X has been in and out of court throughout the years as he fought for custody of his great brood. Most of his flock has flown under the radar despite recounting the famous hoarse “Where’s the hood?” Rapper and actor in movies like 2000’s “Romeo Must Die” as his patriarch.
The Post has reached out to DMX representatives for comment.
Simmons Exodus, 5
DMX and his now fiancee Lindstrom share Exodus, who was born in 2016.
“They are new beginnings,” she told GQ of her son’s name according to the Bible verse. “The exodus speaks of the beginnings. It was a new beginning. “
Lindstrom’s social media accounts are full of happy family photos, including one with DMX and her now 5-year-old in Santa hats.
Aaliyah, around 10
DMX also has a daughter named after the late singer Aaliyah Haughton, who died in 2001, a fact she revealed in 2011 on 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 and special tribute to Aaliyah,” he said, while showing his little daughter to the camera.
“This is Aaliyah,” says the proud father as he cradles the baby. “She’s my newest baby and I named her after Aaliyah because that’s how special she was to me.”
“Know that it is named after an angel,” he tells the boy, whose mother is unknown.
He was a proud father on stage in 2012 during a show when he brought his daughter Aaliyah for the crowd 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 is the author of a book.
Tacoma Simmons, 21
Tashera and DMX’s son, Tacoma, is 21 years old and lists himself as a “music composer” on his Instagram, which is private. In 2019, his proud mother shared a photo sending him to college.
Sean Simmons, 18
Sean Simmons does not have a public account on social media, but Tashera Simmons has shared photos of her 18-year-old son on her Instagram page.
Praise Mary Ella Simmons, 15
The daughter of Tashera Simmons and the rapper, Praise Mary Ella Simmons, is about to turn 16, according to IMDB, which has her birthday listed on April 18, 2005. Her mother shared photos of her for her birthday in 2019 On Instagram.
DMX and Tashera Simmons appeared on Season 1 of VH1’s “Couples Therapy” in 2012 prior to their split, where they revealed that she had extramarital affairs and children out of wedlock. That year, he confirmed to Essence that he had six children out of wedlock, but did not elaborate.
The “Slippin” rapper had a son with Monique Wayne in 2004 after a DNA test showed he was the father. In 2008, DMX was ordered to pay Wayne $ 1.5 million in damages after he was charged with libel, false statements, and “unreasonable publicity” about her.
“I’m a single dad, as far as I’m concerned,” Wayne said at the time.
He also reportedly has two children with his ex Yadira Borrego, who recently shared photos of a couple of young people with DMX on stage. “A little setback for a Senior to return! God got you, your family got you, the kids got you, I got you !! The world got you !! Let’s go, ”he wrote Sunday along with photos that match press images taken during a 2019 concert in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He also shared a photo the night of the show, writing, “Great Show My Babies Love Their Dad So Much.”
Borrego was seen at the Monday night vigil in the crowd with his fiancee and ex-wife and shared photos from the vigil on his Instagram stories. He also shared a photo of his children and some of X’s other children with the caption “Brothers.”
It even looks like the son of DMX is following in his footsteps as a rapper. Borrego shared a video of the young man rapping, declaring his name Lil ‘Smoke, on his YouTube page. In another video, she revealed that the boy is 9 years old after he says his dad met her “because of her looks.”
He also allegedly had a child with another woman in 2008, according to Rolling Out. In January, DMX posted about his “daughter” and her new song, linking to Instagram user @sonovah_junior. That account posted photos of the rapper with a girl, with the caption: “I love you daddy.” An Instagram account that appears to be the girl’s mother’s page shows the same photo along with a behind-the-scenes video during a DMX show.
