Labor Day weekend is typically a time that many people use to unwind and relax. However, it is extremely difficult to do that when you are mourning the loss of a loved one. Over the weekend, DMX's fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom, took to Instagram to provide a tear-jerking update about the couple's five-year-old son, Exodus.
“It’s so sad and heartbreaking as a mother when your son ask mommy when can we go and be with daddy and God in heaven," Lindstrom wrote on Instagram, according to a screenshot obtained by HotNewHipHop.
“He misses his daddy so much.”
Earl "DMX" Simmons passed away on April 9 after spending a week on life support. Victoria Bekiempis of Vulture reports that the rap legend died from "a cocaine-induced heart attack that caused a lack of blood circulation to his brain." In his passing, he leaves behind three siblings, 15 children, a fiancée and countless loved ones.
During his eventful life, DMX dealt with depression and addiction, but he also brought light and love to the music industry. Known as one of the most vulnerable musical superstars of recent memory, he touched millions of fans across the world. As a result, thousands of people gathered outside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 24 to attend his "Celebration of Life" ceremony.
"I am seriously the luckiest, luckiest woman in the world to have been adopted by the Ruff Ryders, but to have known DMX the way that I knew him as a man, a father, a friend. This is so hard y'all. What I pray, what I hope, I pray to God, I pray to our angels, our ancestors, that his journey was smooth. I know that he will rest in power. Rest in love, but most of all he feel rest in peace," DMX's close friend and collaborator, Eve, said during the ceremony.
He was just 50 years old at the time he passed away.
