Following DMX’s celebration of life ceremony over the weekend, the late rapper’s ex-wife offered her support and thoughts to his fiancée Desiree Lindstrom in a heartfelt moment during a separate homegoing service.
On Sunday, Tashera Simmons spoke passionately about her ex-husband from the pulpit at Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, the site of Sunday’s funeral services.
In her speech, Tashera revealed that the artist, born Earl Simmons, often thought he was put on Earth to inspire and serve people.
“He said, ‘I’m here for the world. God put me here for the world … God birthed me to be in the world. I am not of the world. I’m for the world.’ And I said, ‘I believe that, Earl,’” she said, according to Variety.
Before she closed, Tashera took time to honor Lindstrom and welcomed her to the stage, saying, “Real women do real things, I am a real woman and a woman of God, that woman [Lindstrom] is a woman of god.”
