“I am torn. Our children are suffering and trying to get to over that ‘not enough time with their dad’ thing; it’s a tough time,” she said. “At the same time… I used to think that this was insensitive to say, but I do believe he is in a better place, just because of the words he left me with. He was never afraid of passing on. And I used to be aggravated with that, but now I understand.”

DMX died in early April at age 50, days after suffering a heart attack.

Tashera also discussed the two-part final interview with the rapper, the first of which aired on TV One’s Uncensored on Sunday.

“I didn’t know that it was filmed,” she said. “When they called me, I didn’t realize that this was the last interview that he’d done. And the things that he talked about in it were so powerful to them, stories that he spoke about of myself and him that I didn’t even remember, really, until… They literally had to replay it.”

Tashera and DMX were married from 1999 to 2014. They shared four kids – Xavier, Tacoma, Praise Mary, and Sean.

She posted a tribute to her husband on Instagram the day after his death.
