"Sleep In Peace Now"

Yadira Borrego, ex-girlfriend of DMX, is paying tribute to the late rapper and father of her two kids. The model gave her former partner a touching message on Monday (Apr. 26).


“Sleep in peace now,” Yadira wrote to DMX. “Thank you for everything,” Borrego exclaimed. “Thank you for our children. Thank you for the journey and the beautiful years. Thank you for your protection.”

Yadira Borrego was DMX’s on-and-off girlfriend for nine years. She was 18-years-old when she first met the rapper and gave birth to both a son and daughter before parting ways. Yadira has posted several tributes to DMX since his untimely passing earlier this month.

“What I Loved about Him the most was His Love and Passion for our kids,” Borrego revealed in her online tribute. “All of His children Period,” the model declared. “Always willing to play and learn with them, Always so Happy about them! You couldn’t tell Him sh*t about His!! Our babies were and will FOREVER be so Blessed to have called you ‘Daddy.'”

DMX fathered 15 kids in all. All of the late rapper’s children were present at DMX’s homegoing celebration on Sunday (Apr. 25).

“Earl was such an amazing Father,” Yadira told her social media fans. “My Kids really had the best Daddy in the world,” the model added. “His lifeline were (sic) these kids.”

Yadira Borrego joined other family members, friends, and fans in sorrow because of DMX’s untimely passing. Still, the model promised to remain strong for the sake of her children. “I’m going to stand Strong so they can Always lean on Me,” Borrego said in the end.

A public memorial celebrating the life of DMX was held in New York this past Saturday (Apr. 24). The late rapper’s body was taken through town on a Monster truck that was surrounded by motorcyclists who came out to pay tribute to the recording artist. A more private ceremony was held for family members and close friends at Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, NY, on Sunday (Apr. 25).
