Rapper DMX had passed away a few days ago. His ex-wife Tashera Simmons paid tribute to him.
DMX and Simmons got married in 1998 and had four children : Xavier, Tacoma, Praise Mary Ella and Sean. They both parted ways in 2005 and Simmons filed for divorce in 2012.
Tashera Simmons celebrated her 50th birthday. On this occasion, she shared a montage of throwback photos, including some clicks she had with DMX.
She said in a voiceover message, “Happy, happy birthday to me. April 10, 1971. Wow, what a ride. What a journey. As I close up the last 50 years of my life, I rejoice and I thank God for everything it has taught me. The journey that it took me through. The hurt, the pain, the triumph, the resistance, the resilience, the learning lessons, the relationships, the power.”

“I celebrate my life today grateful to God for the 50 years He has given me. But now I also celebrate my ex-husband, my best friend, my spiritual partner, my mentor. But I also thank God for his life and his peace. And his journey and his life lessons that were passed on and that will live on for generations to come,” she concluded.
She captioned her video, “Happy 50th birthday to me. With much prayer, pulling. Crying and a roller coaster of emotions. I couldn’t bring myself to just celebrate and close the last 50yrs of my life without celebrating the life of one of the most important person in the world to me, my Ex-husband,”
“I know today is my day. But I also understand that God is love. So When God allowed me to open up my eyes and granted me the gift of life, I realize more than ever, that was my true gift today. Glory be to God!! I am so grateful to God and Honored from the bottom of my heart, for the opportunity while on this Journey called life to join hands in marriage with a true disciple and Angel of God to do life with when we did.”
“Everything we went through was necessary. It made me the woman I am today. As I enter a new chapter in life, I don’t walk in it the same. Life is so fragile and special at the same time! My life lessons have raised me up to be a Mighty warrior of God! Loving, resilient and strong!” she wrote.
