DMX‘s family is at odds over who will control the late rapper’s estate.
Full story below…
A move, which if granted, would have seen her become his next of kin and presented the clearest path to gain control of his estate. Desiree, who shares a 5-year-old son named Exodus with the icon, would also preside over any of his future earnings.
The motion was denied.
Concurrently, DMX’s three adult sons from his marriage to Tashera Simmons — Xavier, 28, Tacoma, 21, and Sean, 19 — are jointly petitioning to be administrators of the estate.
Complicating matters more, two of X’s adult daughters from other relationships while was married have also filed to be named administrators. They are Sasha Simmons and Jada Oden.
The urgency from all is understandable in light of the speed at which posthumous projects, such as the rapper’s final album ‘Exodus,’ are surfacing.
As for Desiree’s relationship with the wider family, specifics are not yet known. At the star’s funeral, she was tearfully embraced by Tashera. Yet, the various filings arguably tell a story in and of themselves.

In any case, it’s unlikely to be plain sailing for any of those involved given that the rapper has 14 children in total and left no will nor much in the way of liquid assets.
