Unfortunately, there are a lot of celebrities that take drugs. This can be for a variety of reasons, such as to have fun and party or to let loose and relax. When you are in the spotlight all the time and people are watching you, it is easy to make mistakes too.
There have been some celebrities that have found themselves in a bad place because of going too far with drugs. One of them is DMX. Let’s take a look at what happened to this big star in the past.
Who is DMX?
Have you heard of DMX before and are not sure who he is? Well, let’s dive in and start by answering this question. DMX was a famous American rapper, as well as doing some acting. His real name is Earl Simmons and he was 50 years old when he died. He was from New York and became a notorious star because of his voice and the way he rapped. He had five albums that made it to number one. Some of his most famous songs include ‘Where the Hood At?’ and ‘X Gon’ Give It to Ya’. DMX also acted in movies such as Last Hour, Romeo Must Die and Cradle 2 the Grave.
DMX did have some controversies in his life. For example, he was sent to jail around 30 times. This includes everything from robbery and assault to animal cruelty and drug possession. He also had feuds with Ja Rule and Jay-Z. DMX said that he became addicted to drugs at a young age. This could have been as young as 14 years old. He did go to rehab several times in his life. But, drugs would ultimately lead to his demise.
What Happened to DMX?
Unfortunately, it has been confirmed that DMX passed away. This happened on the 9th of April 2021. While there was some speculation about whether this really happened or not, it is now official news. This is a huge loss to his family and he had 15 children that will grow up without a father. In addition, his fans are devastated the whole hip-hop industry is going to suffer as a result.
It is believed that DMX had a big heart attack. His death was confirmed in White Plains, New York. He was 50 years old when he died and it could have been three heart attacks he had that left him in a vegetative state. A lot of people want to know how he ended up in hospital. Well, it is thought that he overdosed on drugs. In particular, it is thought that this was cocaine, which led to a deadly heart attack and DMX ended up in a coma and on life support.
What Has Happened After DMX’s Death?
One thing that a lot of people want to know about after a death in the family is whom the estate is going to go to. Indeed, DMX had 15 children and so when he died, they wanted to know how much inheritance they would get.
Around a month after his death, five of the children wanted to know how much their inheritance would be. This is why they filed a court petition. Without there being any legal partner, this meant that DMX’s whole estate was split between his 14 children. They would receive the same amount of money. But, something important to note is that the money they would receive would be minus the debt. This comes off an estate first before anybody gets any money.
DMX was in a relationship for seven years. However, they never married. His girlfriend was called Desiree Lindstrom. Despite filing a petition in court, she was not recognized as a common-law spouse. This means that she did not receive anything from DMX’s estate when he died.
It is thought that DMX had around $1 million of debt. This will be paid off first. The rest will be split between his children. There is even another person that claims to be his daughter. She will have to have a DNA test done in order to enjoy some of his estate. It is suspected that she will do this in order to receive the money.
There are some names in music that you are always going to recognize. They are iconic and their songs will live on forever. One person that a lot of people are not going to forget about is DMX. He brought a lot to the rap world and he broke many hearts when he passed away in April 2021. Let’s summarize what we know about DMX and what has gone on recently.
When news first broke about DMX, there were a lot of details kept under wraps. Fans did not know what was going on or whether the star would make it out of hospital. Unfortunately, he passed away on the 9th of April 2021. This was due to a heart attack, which is thought to be caused from a drug overdose. He was in a coma and put on life support. However, the family made a heart-breaking decision and the artist passed away. He was 50 years old when he died and this happened in White Plains, New York.
All of his fans were crushed by the news. Indeed, DMX had a large family and this would have come as a shock for them. While DMX has had problems with drugs in the past, not a lot of people would have been prepared for this to happen. Since DMX did leave a big estate, there were always going to be some disputes when it comes to his assets. He had 15 children and they wanted to know more about their inheritance. But, debts must come off your estate first and it is believed that DMX did have some. Once this has been done, the money can be distributed between his children. This should be done equally once it has been decided who is children are.
