Hip hop continues to mourn Earl Simmons while his family is trying to figure out his estate.
As reported on sources, a woman claims she is the mother to a child that belongs to DMX. The Jasmine Brand reports, a woman named Raven Barmer-Simmons, has reportedly been contacting DMX’s other adult children, DMX is her father.
DMX passed away without having his will situated, so now his family is trying to figure it all out. The battle over X’s assets is between his fiancée Desiree Lindstrom and X’s children. A few months ago, Desiree petitioned to become DMX’s common law wife, but a judge denied it. Page Six reports a source close to the family said,
“There is no will from DMX and that’s a big problem. This is a difficult situation because there are a number of people vying to be named administrators. His fiancée Desiree tried to muscle in by asking the court to be named his common-law wife, which means she would have taken precedence over his children. But the court refused.”
TJB also pointed out On October 23, DMX’s eldest sons Xavier, 28, Tacoma, 21, and Sean Simmons, 18, were named temporary administrators of the estate. The woman claiming to be DMX’s child will have to get DNA testing.
