DMX and his wife Tashera Simmons signed up to participate in VH1’s reality series “Couples Therapy” and since the show began airing, the couples’ turbulent marriage has been put under the spotlight. After watching a recent episode Tashera Simmons admits that she was ‘speechless’ and ‘embarrassed’ by the way DMX speaks to her.
On this particular episode of “Couples Therapy” DMX engages in a heated argument with Dr. Jenn in regards to dealing with uncomfortable situations. Dr. Jenn points out that the rapper tends to simply walk away from people he doesn’t agree with and DMX responded by threatening the people around him.
“You got me surrounded by f---ing cameras and it’s not going to be pretty!” he exclaimed.
In an interview with The Jasmine Brand (via Vibe) Simmons expressed how she felt about the whole ordeal with her husband, saying, “… I was speechless watching when X cursed me the hell out,” she said.
“At that time, when it was happening, I was so busy worried about the lies he was making up, that I didn’t realize how he was talking to me. But actually watching it, I realized that I’ve been immune to that talk all of these years, and I realized that I was in a verbally abusive relationship. I was just shocked, and embarrassed.”
