DMX’s Fiance Desiree Lindstrom Shares Emotional Tribute to Late Rapper: ‘Thank You for Us’

DMX’s fiancé Desiree Lindstrom is mourning the loss of the late rapper.

On Saturday (April 17), Lindstrom shared a touching tribute on Instagram to the Yonkers-bred MC, who died on April 9 after experiencing a heart attack triggered by a drug overdose. He was 50.

“The first night we met and you held me close. I knew I would never let go. I was lost in you and nothing else mattered. My best friend, my baby, my love…truly my everything. Thank you for us,” Lindstrom captioned a photo of herself alongside DMX.

“Thank you for Exodus,” she added, referencing the couple’s 4-year-old son. “Thank you God for Earl Simmons…forever X.”

In the days following his death, Lindstrom paid homage to DMX by getting a tattoo on her arm of his 2006 song “Dog Love.” The new ink sits above a large X, which is written in a similar font used on the rapper’s albums.

“I feel honored to be able to do this memorial but also saddened,” Tattoo artist Krystal Kills captioned a photo of the ink on Instagram. “Your light was unmatchable.”

She added, “@desi123love I pray you find your way through these dark times, and remember the love you had for each other will forever be untethered. I’m glad I got to witness it. The world lost an icon but also a great father. Praying for your family. REST IN POWER DMX.”

A memorial service for DMX will be held April 24 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. It’s unclear how many people will be allowed inside the New York arena with current COVID-19 restrictions.

The public service would be followed by an intimate church service for the late rapper’s family and inner-circle on April 25, according to TMZ.
