In a touching and unexpected moment, the former wife of Hip-Hop Icon DMX extended love and support to his fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom, during the funeral that followed Saturday’s memorial event at The Barclays Center.
Simmons called Desiree Lindstrom “a woman of God,” her arms offering comfort at X's celebration memorial.
“He said, ‘I’m here for the world. God put me here for the world … God birthed me to be in the world. I am not of the world. I’m for the world.’ And I said, ‘I believe that, Earl,'” Simmons said of her former spouse.
She went on to call Lindstrom up to the microphone, saying, “Real women do real things, I am a real woman and a woman of God, that (Lindstrom) woman is a woman of god.” She added: “And that’s why I love you.”
The women embraced tightly on stage.
Simmons said that while Lindstrom was unaccustomed to the spotlight, she encouraged her to be the woman “he (DMX) taught you to be.”
