DMX, ‘Couples Therapy': Rapper Lashes Out at Marriage Counselor — Video
DMX stars on VH1’s reality show “Couples Therapy,” where celebrity marriages are dissected in front of the camera. Since the series aired, the rapper and wife Tashera Simmons have openly bickered over his infidelity and disrespect for her feelings. In Thursday night’s episode (March 29), X expressed outrage over having to engage in a group therapy session with marriage counselor Dr. Jenn Berman. In a heated argument, he threw out an expletive-laden rant that left his wife feeling helpless.
“It was no surprise DMX did not want to participate,” Dr. Berman said before confronting the It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot creator.
“They got us on some lockdown s— in this house,” X shared, as he discussed the situation with an unidentified person on the phone. “Of course I’m rebelling.”
When Dr. Berman attempted to have a polite discussion with DMX about his refusal to participate in the therapy session, he became combative.
“I didn’t sign up for this s—,” DMX stated. “Me and her [Tashera], we always gonna be good. We always gonna be best friends. I don’t know about anybody else. I don’t care about anybody else.”
Berman once again tried reasoning with the formerly incarcerated MC but to no avail. “You can do whatever you want to do, but I think you and I have a mutual respect here,” she said. “I just want to understand… I care about you guys as a couple. I feel like we have a lot of great work to do together if you’re open to it.”
“What great work do we need to f—ing do?” the rhymer demanded. “I’m done talkin’. I’m not gonna sit here and f—ing talk all day.”
“Couples Therapy” airs Wed., 9PM ET on VH1.
