Tashera Simmons was married with DMX for 14 years until their 2012 divorce and has seen her fair share of incredible DMX events. While talking with DTFRadio, the estranged ex-wife of Dark Man X vividly detailed an incident which involved an inebriated DMX firing a gun at his manager in a hotel.
According to Ms. Simmons, in 1999, while pregnant, her and DMX’s manager went searching for DMX at a New Jersey hotel after the MC had gone missing for three days. When the pair got to X’s room he greeted them with a gun and after some opposition, X finally agrees to pack up his belongings and leave the room. The paranoia returns when the three of them arrive downstairs and X sees a large gathering of people for a convention. Tashera attempted to calm him down, but before she knew it X let one off:
He was like ‘Yo Tashera, somebody’s following me. I’m telling you.’ The manager is about to lose it, like scared to death. Next thing you know we hear a pop and the manager fell to the floor. I’m like ‘what happened?’ and I see blood on the floor. Then X was like, ‘Somebody shot him. I told you somebody was following me’. Mind you, I go down to the floor to see where the manager was hit at which was the foot and you see the bottom of X’s bookbag with smoke and a hole at the bottom.
