Another day, another rapper’s ex making news. To help promote her tell-all book “You Think You Know, But You Have No Idea,” DMX’s ex-wife Tashera Simmons sat down with Forbez DVD Live for an interview. During the conversation, Simmons spoke on DMX’s money situation, claiming that “He is not broke…DMX gets $20,000 every show still to this day. He does it twice, three times a month.”

Simmons also spoke on X’s dark history with drugs and the help the Ruff Ryders gave him during X’s battles with addiction. “The Ruff Ryders, they came in and they really helped,” says Simmons. “They didn’t have a clue because X you can’t really tell. In the beginning, they couldn’t find him. They had important things that they set up for him and they couldn’t understand why they couldn’t find him…I used to go in buildings, go in crack houses. I mean, I totally was out of my zone to get him out so that way they wouldn’t find out his secret…It got to a point where I had to tell ‘em because they thought he wasn’t serious. And when they came on board they did everything they could to help him.”-Peter Walsh
