A New York judge has ordered DMX's ex wife, Tashera Simmons and their kids to vacate their New York home despite her emotional plea to provide a roof over their heads.

The former couple was sued back in 2013 by the bank who accused them of owing over $258,927 in back payments; adding they hadn't paid a penny on the home since 2008.

Tashera recently filed legal documents in which she accused the bank of shady business by taking advantage of the fact she didn't have a lawyer at the settlement conference.

She also claims that one of DMX's creditor - a company named Amusing Diversions - tried to disrupt the multiple settlement conferences she attended on the case and ended any settlement talks so the home could be sold at foreclosure in order for them collect on the debt the rapper owed them

''The creditor went on and on about the fact that my ex-husband is a famous rapper so that she should be able to pay for the house neglecting the fact that he had abandoned out family and that we, at that time, were not receiving his assistance at all,'' she explained.

According to her affidavit Tashera stated DMX failed to defend himself in a legal battle with the creditor and they won a small judgement which has grown to a huge debt because he hasn't paid it ... which has allowed them to take a brownstone they owned and also put a lien on the home she has lived in for years with her children. Tashera pleaded with the court to allow her to work out a deal with the bank to keep a roof over her kids heads.

Unfortunately for Tashera, the New York judge was not persuaded by her emotional plea to keep a home for her kids. On June 18, he ordered that the bank can move forward with the foreclosure sale and Tashera will need to vacate the home as soon as possible.
