News: DMX's Baby Mama Drama Exposed, Rapper Owes Big Bucks
Sunday, Feb 19, 2012 9:42AM
New York rapper DMX is making headlines this weekend with reports claiming he owes a hefty amount of money in child support.
According to reports, X owes a million dollars and some change to a woman claiming to be his ex-girlfriend.
DMX has been accused of owing more than $1 million in back child support -- but TMZ has learned, the rapper ain't convinced the woman pointing the finger is really his baby mama. X's ex, Patricia Trejo, was in L.A. Superior Court Thursday morning, arguing against a motion DMX filed in their ongoing paternity case -- in which the rapper asked the court for permission to perform in Europe. You see, in paternity cases where significant child support is owed, the owing parent is prohibited from obtaining a passport without a court order -- and X wants a special dispensation. But Patricia put her foot down in court Thursday -- claiming DMX owed $1 million in unpaid child support, going back to her daughter's birth over ten years ago ... and she was tired of waiting around. Now here's the twist -- DMX tells TMZ, he hasn't paid because he's not convinced the girl is his ... and wants a DNA test to prove paternity before he starts handing over cash. (TMZ)
The rapper's estranged wife Tashera Simmons previously talked about X's multiple children.
"He had four other children out of our marriage and I didn't know," she revealed in an interview. "I only found out about one, and it was the one in Maryland that was public. It was all over the news and I still was gonna try to make it work [but] after we did the show Soul of a Man, I guess the women felt some kind of way because he was doing a lot of paying child support behind my back and giving them money without me knowing anything. So once I came out in interviews saying this is my only daughter and this is my family I guess they started feeling some kind of way and they started sending lawyers and all these child support suits to my house and that wasn't acceptable...But when he started coming up with all these kids I was like I can't because for one, I have kids and I definitely don't want my daughter to think that that's okay. The drugs already was too much but then the cheating, I didn't even know he had time to do that. I mean, I never put it past him; I never say never but without protection? There was just a lot of unprotected sex and I have kids to take care of. I started thinking about all of that and I was like, I can't do it anymore. I felt he took me for granted." (VIBE)
Prior to hooking back up, X separated from Tashera in 2010.
"I'm good, life is good, God is great man," X said in an interview over the weekend with rap personality Super Snake. "And it's gonna get better. With this last one, I had been sitting for 90 days, since like January or February and this whole time, by the grace of God, I was given the opportunity to pick the time. I thought 'Let me knock it out' because I got a lot of work to do in L.A. and I don't want to get snagged, get it over with. It was only 90 days anyway. BFW, baby. Built For War...[Me and my son's] relationship is not the best right now but it's gonna get better. All he's known his whole life is me being there and now me and his mother are separated, we're not together anymore and it's been like five, six years but that's my first born. That's my baby."

Details on the couple's break-up became public in July 2010.
DMX's wife Tashera Simmons has officially separated from the chart-topping rapper and is planning a reality show focusing on her rebuilding their family without him. According to Simmons, the reality show is titled "Tashera Simmons....Life After X" and will give a firsthand account of how their family is coping with the rapper's legal and drug problems and how they "cope with a husband and a father that has let them down over and over again."
