DMX Estate: New Child Reveal Ramps Up Legal Battle

The late rapper may have fathered up to 15 children.

Another woman has emerged in the estate battle of DMX claiming to be the late rapper’s daughter.

According to Page Six, Raven Barmer-Simmon says she reached out to the other reported children of the “Party Up” rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons. The Georgia resident also claims they plan on submitting DNA tests to confirm their paternity. If proven, the rapper would have fathered a total of 15 children.

The news come just days after Judge Helen Blackwood appointed the “Slippin” emcee’s three sons Xavier, Tacoma, and Sean Simmons, whom he shared with ex-wife Tashera Simmons, as temporary administrators of the late star’s estate which is reported to be worth merely $1 million dollars.

Desiree Lindstrom, DMX’s longtime partner, was denied a request to be declared his “common law wife.” The pair, who share a son, Exodus, 5, had reportedly been together for roughly eight years and engaged for four of them.

Herbert Nass, the trusts and estates attorney for DMX’s three sons, told the news outlet that “The estate is going to ask everyone to prove paternity through DNA testing. All the legal children of DMX will be entitled to an equal share of his estate.” The rapper reportedly did not leave a will which further complicated estate proceedings.

DMX was hospitalized in Westchester County, New York, on April 2 after suffering from an apparent drug overdose and subsequent heart attack. He was in a coma for nearly a week until his death on April 9 at the age of 50.
