DMX’s Wife Wins Big Settlement Against Rapper

(AllHipHop News) DMX’s problems have just gotten a bit deeper, as his living wages have been garnished by the state to ensure he pays child support.

Tashera Simmons, who is technically still married to DMX, will now get $15,000 per month from DMX’s checks from Universal Music Publishing.

This ruling is in accordance with income withholding docs filed in New York state, says TMZ.

Additionally, the documents reveal that $10,000 will specifically go to the four kids they have together and the other $5,000 goes to unspecified support.

    • GP

      after hearing this x like fuqq where my dawgs at, x like where my pipes at.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      yes, that’s good – somebody explain how that works – how does homie still get paid from publishing co. – from what? – for what?

      • Faceda59

        Royalty checks from when he was hot.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        I’m surprised he still getting that after this long, tho

      • It’s called “RESIDUAL” for a reason, you dumb, ghetto dwelling, hoodrat Sambo!

      • johnblacksad

        Only wrist I believe to have dropped two number one albums the same year… X was hot when he was hot, trust dat!… royalty checks still comin in I see…

      • IceBergSlim

        Yeah X was hot I mean back when he was gettin it this cat was dropping back to back platinum albums

      • IceBergSlim

        If he owns the publishing rights to his music he is good. When you own the rights to your music written and or produced and whoever uses it to remake, use in a commercial or for anyone who wants use your music you get a percentage. Example Rick James- rappers have been using his music for a minute and he gets a nice royalty check hammer used his music when he was a hot bamma and he Rick james got paid. Isley Brothers also. That’s why when you enter the music business it’s important too own your own masters as well as your publishing rights. Michael Jackson very smart who owns publishing rights too his own music as well as numerous recording artist including Jay z, eminem, and I think Lady GaGa and the list goes on and Mike gets paid off their music cause he now owns the publishing rights to their music.

        Tell him X residuals should make 1.5 easy since he stop recording

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        really ?

      • ** The Beatles **

      • Terrance


      • Whoah!

        He bought Elvis?

        I remember when MiJac & paul mac had beef over Beatles purchase.

      • Casor_Greener

        MIKE doesn’t own all that publishing. Dude come on. He got the Beatles but not Jay, eminem, or GaGa

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        The Beatles is more than enuff – that’s why he paid 170 million for it

      • Mec-One

        word, he jumped out the window with that shit!

      • TheAfroRican

        He does own a percentage of Eminem’s publishing. Em has a publishing deal with Famous Music, which was bought out by SONY/ATV Music, the company which MJ own 50% of.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois


      • Mec-One

        Mike dead, he ain’t getting shit ……. royalties get smaller every year. X royalties for the whole year probably add up to less than 20 K

      • TheAfroRican

        You also get publishing royalties from radio spins and licensing.

      • Ipullcards

        Bro almost all his albums go platinum! X at one point was the highest grossing rap act before Em n jigga started popping. Don’t sleep

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        but those albums ain’t sold in years

      • brotha_man

  • The Black Fist

    BOI, royalty checks has saved a lot of rappers

  • Sean Taylor

    WOW $10K per month for child support!!??

  • TheAfroRican

    Publishing is an artist’s 401K. Good to keep 100% of it.

  • Andre Moore

    If you don’t want to loose your money wrap it up and don’t have no damn kids. Then make old girl sign a prenup. Rappers yell how hoes aint getting they money on records but be the first ones giving hoes that money in child support. They were married before the money and fame so yeah she should get something but 15k damn homie!

    • MsPeaceful

      fIRST OF ALL ‘hoes. Im tired of black men calling women bitches and hoes… why? thats his darn wife not some darn jump off. He should’ve thought of that before spreading his darn dick around… Like really.

  • This is getting tired….After making millions of dollars this is how DMX ends up? Black people need to wake up and spend wisely.

  • I am stuck between being disgusted from black men who ALWAYS want to have sex raw and stupid Black chicks who let’s them do it….Knowing dam well that this is how it turns out….Condoms are free at all the clinics

    • TerranceW

      Dont paint ALL Black men with that brush. Some of us are responsible and use protection. Besides them free clinic condoms will bust on you in a hearbeat. I go to the store and buy mine. A box of rubbers are cheaper than a box of pampers everytime 😉

  • Nic TheDragonslayer

    She’s not a baby mama. She is his WIFE!! They had four children together and he is obligated to take care of them.

  • IMonONE

    She was not so me random THOT. She was his wife!!!! So as husband and father he is obligated to care for his children. PERIOD
