DMX’s wife Tashera Simmons will reveal the intimate details of her life with the rap star in a new tell all book.
Representatives for Tashera Simmons have confirmed with AllHipHop.com that a tell all book titled Strength of Woman is in the process of revealing a “not so glamorous life” in the autobiographical work.
As “Mrs. DMX,” Tashera was prominently featured in DMX’s reality show DMX: Soul Of A Man, which chronicled his turbulent life in 2006.
DMX has been arrested every year since 1999, on multiple charges, ranging from impersonating a police officer to animal abuse.
Additionally, the rapper, who has been married to Tashera since 1999, has been hit with several paternity suits over the years.
In 2004, a woman from Buffalo New York and another from Baltimore, Maryland accused him of fathering their children.
In January of 2008, DMX was ordered to pay $1.5 million dollars to the Baltimore woman, after he accused her of raping him in an interview with Sister2Sister magazine, in response to the woman’s paternity claims.
DMX was also the first artist in history to have five consecutive #1 debut albums on the Billboard Top 200 Charts.
It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot (1998), Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood (1998), And Then There Was X (1999), The Great Depression (2002) and Grand Champ (2003) each topped the charts when they were released.
He’s also a prolific actor with major roles in movies like Belly, Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds.
“She will be talking about her experience with her family and trying to hold them together through the DMX journey,” a representative for Tashera told AllHipHop.com. “Her story is a stellar, heart wrecking, powerful, firsthand account of survival and family strength in a chaotic life and the fame that came with that life.”
