Congratulations to DMX! According to multiple reports, the 45-year-old rapper has welcomed his 15th child. The child, born on August 19th, is with his girlfriend/baby mama, Desiree. X’s child’s name is Exodus Simmons and weighed in at 6 lbs, 10 oz at birth. Last month, during an interview on the Breakfast Club, X confirmed that he has 9 baby mamas and jokingly revealed how he picks who he wants to breed with. See the clip below.
Reportedly, Exodus is his 15th child. He was married to Tashera Simmons in 1999 and they were married for eleven years. DMX had multiple extramarital affairs during his marriage to Simmons, some of which produced children. DNA testing confirmed that he is the father of at least two children; the first was born to Maryland resident Monique Wayne in 2004, the second to a different woman in late 2008. DMX and Wayne fought over her claim that he was the father of her son for years, during which she has sued him repeatedly for defamation of character, and for child support. After DNA testing proved DMX fathered Wayne’s son in 2007, he was ordered to pay her $1.5 million.
On July 30, 2013, DMX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, citing his child support obligations as his priority claim.The filing was challenged by the Department of Justice’s bankruptcy watchdog trustee program,and was later dismissed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan on November 11, 2013.
