Listen to DMX on iHeartRadio

DMX is blaming his estranged wife, Tashera Simmons, for the foreclosure on a home in Mount Kisco, New York.  

According to, the rapper owes more than $250,000 on the home because the mortgage hasn't been paid since 2008.  The embattled emcee tells the celebrity gossip website Tashera was supposed to take responsibility of the mortgage payments after he moved out in 2005. 

Apparently, DMX has told Tashera that she needs to "downgrade" because she's "living above her means."  However, he claims she refuses to do so because the house is still in his name and she doesn't care about his credit. 

DMX also accuses Tashera of withdrawing $100,000 from his bank account during one of his stints in jail.
