Some of your comments are so

Some of your comments are so ridiculous. You think childhood trauma doesn't have an effect on you as an adult? What tv show do you live in???? We can all say suck it up you made lots of money you have no excuse. At the end of the day he is human. His sprit was torn and maybe he wasn't as strong as some of you opinionated jerks that think the human mind can be fixed with a snap of ones fingers. IDIOTS!!!!!!

That shit hurt my feelings... Needless to say, you never know what a person is been through or going through. But you just gotta, somehow, rise above your heartache and pain so that it doesn't disable and destroy you. Spread love.

I never liked DMX, I used to

I never liked DMX, I used to think he was disrespectful, misogynist and the ghettoest person on earth. But he just gave me an insight into what made him into the person he became and I respect him for his honesty and bravery. Yes he could've conducted and bahaved differently in circumstances of his wife and children but to when your core up bringing and mantality is so warped and damaged, I can't lecture of judge him it's for his family to do that as to how they feel is appropriate as he does his mother. I pray that letting all this trauma out in couples therapy turns him to a better man that every step he takes from here forth is in the path of righteousness. We are quick to judge and slow to forgive, especially someone who has not directly effected our lives. DMX Only God can judge you justly and accordingly, accept that your life had to be turbulent so that when peace and happiness comes your way it will feel sweeter then any one else's. Belle said it xx

The most real part he said

The most real part he said was "no matter how tough or how hard a man claims to be, they still want to be someone's baby". I said that to a man today and his response was "that sh!t is real". I don't condone his actions but as the saying goes...'hurt people, hurt people'....

Whether he is broke or not it

Whether he is broke or not it take alot of a person so put themselves on the line and expose themselves. Has he displayed himself to be respectable? No. He has learned as a child how not to respect women or authority. As far as being a good parent, he wasn't taught how to be a good parent. We follow by example and he was dealt a bad one. You can say he and his wife are doing this for the money, who doesn't work in Hollywood for the money. He needs the theraphy, he needs the money (he has to feed his kids) and there are things he need to express. We have so many men feeling like they can't express the hurt and pain they may have felt so try and see the bigger picture.

Tashera is a low down dirty

Tashera is a low down dirty person. Don't let her fool you. Both of them are a trip. He never ever ever was faithful to her non speaking english self. Foudation my a@@. Some example you are showing young girls/woman. Sitting there taking that abuse from X. Oh but you are best friends ?!? X makes you look stupid, desperate. You both need long intense therapy, but not on TV. Because you can't really open up. X you are shameful to Tashera and your kids. Sorry ass man. You will use this about your mom forever. Did she make you broke? Did she make you dog your wife/kids ?

His mother broke him before

His mother broke him before he ever had a chance. We can say what we want, but childhood trauma is no joke. It can kill the spirit of a person. A mother is a man's first connection to loving a women. If your mother beat you like a dog and abandoned you, how would that make you feel? Hurt people hurt people.

He's using his pass to get over. That has nothing to do with the way he treats his wife. If anything the respect for her should have been higher. He's a dog looking for a bone. He has low self esteem from not trying to become better. Tashera I don't feel sorry 4 at all. She dogs out people. Talk mad smack and has low low self esteem as well. She sit around and let this BOY talk about her like a dog. Treats his kids like s@@@t. And they both are broke. So this is away to gain money. They both look stupid !!!!!!!! DMX drunk , drugged out & dumb .

It is not so much about

It is not so much about hiding it, it is about learning to deal with it and move on. It is obviuously difficult for DMX and it is also obvious that he has turned to drugs to deal with it. I still believe DMX is one of the most talented rapper of his time. If only he could stay clean.

some parts of what he said

some parts of what he said just sounded so extreme, like his mother taking 3 extension cords and braiding them together and then beating him -- well she waited until he was sleep until she beat him? was his mother mentally ill or something? i don't know, i feel sorry for him for whatever abuse happened, but his story was hard for me to swallow.... take care and God bless though, Earl.

What he said is not far from

What he said is not far from truth. My mother would do the samething. She would tell me she was gonna beat me that night and i would stay awake so i would not get beat the next night i would be to tired to stay awake and she would beat me out of my sleep. It happens and some parents should not be parents.

This is what I think makes

This is what I think makes DMX and his wife's relationship so complicated...sure anybody that sees how he treats her would say that she should've been left his ass..but X is so broken and the fact that she has stood by him through everything is amazing...I know I couldnt do it..I just think that DMX needs to get therapy in a lot of other areas first before doing couples therapy...you have to work out issues within yourself before you can give someone else the love that they truly deserve...

My heart too goes out to DMX,

My heart too goes out to DMX, alot of men stand behind hurt and pain and do senseless things to hide all the pain the exists inside. I do believe that a mothers love goes along way, and as a child he missed out on that and as a grown man he needs it. I know that some may think well he is grown, but I have grown to realize from people I know that many hold on to that hurt and pain, and counseling will bring those hidden pains and hurtful hearaches to the surface where they need to be so a resolution can begin. Babysteps that is. Some grown men that go through these things as a child really never learn how to love someone else the right way because they didn't get that as a child. If as a grown man you feel you was thrown away as a child, all I can say is poor baby. I pray that this counseling helps him and he understand that it is ok to cry. I'm glad his ex-wife is there for him!!!

I truly felt/feel bad about

I truly felt/feel bad about DMX's childhood. It must be awful to be beaten and unloved, moved around alot, etc. But, *but*...I never understood why people who've known such intense pain & hurt are so willing to inflict intense pain on others. And don't tell me about 'feeling powerless', 'breaking the cycle' or any of that other b.s. The way DMX treats his (ex) wife is INSANE! The only thing crazier is the way that she ALLOWS/silently goes along with it. SMH...he needs to get himself together before having ANY relationships with women: his wife or otherwise.

Whoa...my heart truly goes

Whoa...my heart truly goes out to DMX, it's nothing like having your mother's love, or act least hearing her say it. In my 50 something years of living i may have heard my mother say she loves me twice that's a hurt piece, but i may not like my mother at times, i would never disrespect her but i do love her. And i also make it a point to tell my children everyday that i love them and they say they love me too.

See this is why no matter how

See this is why no matter how many times DMX stumbles, his fans truly support and understand him. I do not condone his extramarital affairs or some of the other wreckless behaviors displayed in the past; but there is always a sense of realness about him that most of us can relate to. My hope and prayer is that this brother turns his life around for the better; and inspire others to do what's right.
