DMX’s ex-wife has gotten court approval to garnish the rapper’s Universal Music Publishing royalties for $15,000 a month, according to TMZ.
The site says that court documents say that Tashera Simmons will get $10,000 month for child support for the couple’s four children and an additional $5,000 for other expenses.
In April, Simmons discussed the evolution of DMX’s life and career, which includes selling millions of albums an a history of drug abuse.
“In my opinion, he is a success story that turned into a horror story,” Simmons said at the time. “Seriously…You know, with that drug comes a whole lot of manipulation. He hasn’t been doing what he’s supposed to do with his children in years. And he heard about the book coming out. And he called me. And he said ‘Oh, I heard you’re coming out with a book. Congratulations. I hope you’re not putting nothing out there.’ And I just listened to be honest with you. Because I knew that he was only calling me cause he was concerned about what I was gonna say…He is not broke and I need to put that out there because some people say ‘Well, he’s not making any money.’ DMX gets $20,000 every show still to this day. He does it twice, three times a month.”
