DMX’s Ex-Wife and Three Eldest Sons Appointed Temporary Co-Administrators of his Estate

Rapper and actor DMX passed away earlier this year at the age of 50 on April 9, and after being laid to rest, the finances of the oft-troubled entertainer weren’t as fruitful as people anticipated based on the accomplishments he achieved during his career. Almost immediately, due to DMX having close to 15 children, the fight for the money he left with has been in dispute between family members.

According to Billboard, the ex-wife and three eldest sons of the late rapper will be managing his estate as temporary co-administrators.

A statement was released on Monday that stated “DMX’s ex-wife Tashera Simmons‘ oldest sons, Xavier Simmons, Sean Simmons, and Tacoma Simmons, have been appointed temporary co-administrators of the estate of Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons pursuant to a decision of the Westchester County Surrogate’s Court today. They will now exclusively manage the affairs of their late father’s estate.”

It was also reported that the estate of DMX has retained the services of entertainment attorney Ron Sweeney of Ron Sweeney and Company to exclusively handle all entertainment-related matters. Herb Nass is the attorney for the Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons estate and the sons as co-administrators.

The New York Post had reported last week that a Georgia woman, Raven Barmer-Simmons had come forward to claim that she is DMX’s 15th child and asked to be included in his estate. Nass said that all 15 people who are claiming to be DMX’s children will be asked to submit to DNA testing to prove paternity.

Earl Simmons, better known as DMX, the rapper/actor hospitalized earlier this year in April, following a reported heart attack, died on April 9, a week after being admitted. The rapper was reportedly on life support in a “vegetative state” when he was admitted to the hospital.

DMX had an extensive battle with drug addiction, and the Yonkers emcee had been open about his struggles. His drug use began at 14 when a supposed mentor introduced a young Simmons to crack cocaine.

The rapper has had a mural drawn for him that was unveiled in July. According to TMZ, the mural of DMX was designed by NYC artist Floyd Simmons, who is not related to DMX. The artistry was displayed on a wall near the Calcagno Homes on School Street, which is the public housing complex where DMX had once lived.
