DMX AND HIS ESTATE : BATTLEGROUND

Several DMX Family Members Petition To Control His Estate

DMX’s fiancée Desiree Lindstrom recently applied to become an administrator and be

declared his “common-law wife” through the legal system, but Judge Helen Blackwood

shot her petition down.

Lindstrom has a five-year-old named Exodus with X and if she was granted “common-

law wife” status, she would have been granted full access to the estate and control all

future earnings from music.

An official estate must be set up to distribute the profits DMX will posthumously earn

from his music career. Three of the Yonkers legend’s sons from his marriage to Tashera

Simmons have also petitioned to become administrators (Xavier, 28, Tacoma, 21 and

Sean, 19 ). Daughters Sasha Simmons and Jada Oden from separate relationships have

also filed on behalf of the courts.

“There is no will from DMX and that’s a big problem,” a source relayed. “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.”

The next court hearing regarding DMX’s estate is scheduled for July 15.

DMX — born Earl Simmons — passed away at 50 years old on April 9 from a massive

heart attack that was reportedly triggered due to a drug overdose a week earlier.

Swizz Beatz took on the executive producer role to see his close friend’s vision through

and released DMX’s Exodus album on May 28 via Def Jam Records.
