DMX and Tashera Simmons

DMX’s Ex-Wife: DMX Once Got High And Shot His Manager (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Tashera Simmons was married with DMX for 14 years until their 2012 divorce and has seen her fair share of incredible DMX events. While talking with DTFRadio, the estranged ex-wife of Dark Man X vividly detailed an incident which involved an inebriated DMX firing a gun at his manager in a hotel.

According to Ms. Simmons, in 1999, while pregnant, her and DMX’s manager went searching for DMX at a New Jersey hotel after the MC had gone missing for three days. When the pair got to X’s room he greeted them with a gun and after some opposition, X finally agrees to pack up his belongings and leave the room. The paranoia returns when the three of them arrive downstairs and X sees a large gathering of people for a convention. Tashera attempted to calm him down, but before she knew it X let one off:

He was like ‘Yo Tashera, somebody’s following me. I’m telling you.’ The manager is about to lose it, like scared to death. Next thing you know we hear a pop and the manager fell to the floor. I’m like ‘what happened?’ and I see blood on the floor. Then X was like, ‘Somebody shot him. I told you somebody was following me’. Mind you, I go down to the floor to see where the manager was hit at which was the foot and you see the bottom of X’s bookbag with smoke and a hole at the bottom.

Check out the full interview below as Tashera explains how the pair fled the hotel, got caught by police and more:

  • Damn, that was touching as hell… Wow X….

    I think its safe to say ‘a woman’s fed up”and broke, so be prepared to hear alot of unheard (albeit not surprising) new stories about X.

    Say what you want about Puff, but Kim Porter keep her mouth shut!

        Don’t know where your from but this is some detailed info and for some one on probation/parole, or just in general, doesn’t look good and someone that loved you at one time, should take this ti their grave

      • Dontoure Smith

        They can’t convict you while you’re on probation for something that happened probably around 98 99 ish

    So thus far, none of the people commenting knew DMX got high and did a lot of dumb shit? No snitchin? No talkin? What exactly is she telling that most people don’t know?

    • moonwolf

      People do know about this though. This was during the Hard Knock Life tour era where they raided his house right after & found all the guns & shit. It was publicized back then. They talked about it on the Behind The Music too, its old news. This was just more in detail.

      What she didnt tell this time though is that the manager was actually X’s uncle Ray Copeland who used to manage him lol.

      Dog Man X baby!
