American rapper DMX’s wife has filed for divorce wanting to end their troubled thirteen year marriage. The hip-hop star, who’s real name is Earl Simmons, wed Tashera in 1999, but their relationship has been hit rock bottom by Dmx‘s frequent infidelity, and they separated in 2010.
They did try to reunite and work their problems our on a U.S. reality TV show couple’s therapy earlier this year 2012 but that didn’t work. She tells lifestyle website Essence.com,
“He couldn’t believe it. I don’t know why.After going through all the stuff we did – after he did all the things he has done and after us going through therapy – I was just like, I couldn’t leave (the show) without asking for a divorce.”
And Tashera Simmons claims she owed it to herself to walk away from the troubled relationship for good:
“I felt like it was time. I’m (about) self-empowerment now, and I was so totally over the situation. I want to help other women, so I knew I needed to put my relationship on Front Street (on display) so they could see what I was dealing with, and what I chose to do.”
The couple do have four children together.
