Tashera Simmons Mounts Court Battle To Save Home
DMX’s estranged wife isn’t giving up her foreclosed home without a fight.
Tashera Simmons will appeal a judge’s ruling that put the family’s tony suburban New York mansion into foreclosure, BOSSIP has learned.
Simmons filed a notice of appeal June 3 in Westchester County Supreme Court, informing the court that she plans to take the foreclosure case to the Appellate Division of New York’s State Supreme Court.
In April, a judge ruled that the Yonkers rapper’s home in upscale Westchester County, NY be foreclosed on and sold off after Compass Bank sued the ex-couple, alleging the Simmons’ owed $738,134 in back mortgage payments, interest, late charges and a negative escrow balance.
DMX and Tashera have been battling for years to save their tony Mt. Kisco, NY home, which sits on nearly three acres. The couple bought the home for $649,000 in 2000, according to public records, and got a $495,000 mortgage on it three years later. But they stopped making mortgage payments in 2008, and Compass Bank sued to foreclose on the mansion, according to court records.
We’ve reached out to Simmons’ attorney, Jay Sanchez, for comment.
