Separated couple, DMX and Tashera are currently participating in Vh1′s new show ‘Couple’s Therapy’ in an effort to mend their relationship and patch up their marriage. So far, the show has been a very enlightening look into DMX’s background as he tries to sort through his own personal issues which have, in turn, effected their relationship and family.
This week, he broke down in tears as he talked about being abused by his mother as well as how he’s always longed to call her ‘mommy’ and how he’s never heard her say the words, ‘I love you’, to him.
I use to always turn to drugs when I was feeling a certain way and now that I’m not doing that. Sometimes when the pressure builds up I call ‘bino’ and be like, “I just wanted to say, “Mommy.” I wanted to say that word; ‘Mommy’!, not my mother. I wanted to say mommy. I just wanted to say ‘Hi’ to her to her because I haven’t talked to her in years. I just wanted to say, “Hi Mommy, I love you.”
You never got to have that experience?
No and she had not once ever told me that she loved me. (starts crying). You know what I think a lot of people lose sight of the fact that no matter how strong you are as a man no matter how tough you are we all need to be somebody’s baby.
