Late rapper DMX‘s fiancée Desiree Lindstrom is opening up about their son’s health problems!

The mother-of-one shared snippets of the interview on Instagram, where she revealed that the 5-year-old had been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.
DMX’s Fiancée Desiree Lindstrom Shares Their Son’s Health Condition
Last year, the entertainment industry lost a legendary artist when DMX died, and his memory continues to be honored by fans worldwide.
Although the “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” rapper’s passing broke the hearts of millions, no one felt the icon’s absence as much as his loved ones, especially Lindstrom.
Earlier this month, the “Cradle 2 the Grave” star’s fiancée shared an excerpt of her interview on Harper’s podcast, where she discussed life after her fiance’s death.
The host quizzed the mother-of-one about herself in the clip, and Lindstrom replied that her life had undergone various changes.
The most significant change was that the “Party Up” musician’s finacée enrolled in beauty school to become an esthetician and a better mother. In her words:
“I’m learning how to do facials, waxing, trying to build myself. I just want to build myself to be a great mother to Exodus. I want him to see that he has a strong mother, for one, that can stand up on her own.”
This heartfelt post was partly captioned, “Keeping it real and trusting in God to lead the way! #ForeverX Thank you @tmz for having me on this week show.”

As for her son’s health, the single mother uploaded a second snippet from the interview in honor of World Kidney Day, a part of National Kidney Month.
According to the doting parent, Exodus faced ongoing chronic health problems. However, the little boy was doing well, despite his condition. In Lindstrom’s words:
“Exodus is stable, he’s been stable since I had him. He still has stage 3 kidney disease, and I just continue to keep his potassium down, he can’t eat high potassium foods. He goes to the doctor very often.”
The “Where The Hood At” rapper’s fiancée explained that she contributed to her son’s stability by ensuring that his “creatinine levels” weren’t above normal.
“He’s an amazing child,” the proud mother concluded before penning the exact words in her touching caption that read:
“Exodus is an amazing child! Blessed to be his mother through this journey. March is the month that brings awareness to kidney disease. Take the time to learn about CKD. Knowledge is key.”
Lindstrom also expressed her gratitude to the National Kidney Foundation and Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital for their support. The aspiring esthetician didn’t exclude fans as she wrote, “Prayers are much appreciated!”
Naturally, this clip was positively received by the mother-of-one’s followers as it amassed more than 30,000 views and 400 comments.
The Hip-Hop Icon’s Funeral Was A Grand Celebration Of Life
Last year, The Blast reported that DMX’s funeral was a monumental occasion befitting the late rapper’s almost three-decade career and numerous achievements.
Def Jam Records spared no expense as the label shelled out “$35,228.13” to celebrate the legendary artist as lavishly as possible from the embalming of his remains down to the funeral home.
The “What’s My Name” singer was laid to rest in a red custom casket, transported by a black monster truck with the words “Long live DMX” painted on the side.
The impressive truck, alongside a procession of hundreds of motorcyclists and ATVs sporting “Ruff Ryders” clothing, transferred the casket from the Hip-hop star’s hometown to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
The Mount Vernon native’s Celebration of Life was attended by some of the biggest names in the music industry, such as Swizz Beatz and Jay Z.
At the event, Kanye “Ye” West also paid tribute to the AMA winner with an exceptional performance by his Yeezy choir.
The “Get It On The Floor” singer passed away following a drug overdose caused by consuming a deadly mixture of crack-cocaine and Fentanyl.
According to music mogul Irv Gotti, DMX suffered a heart attack because of the drugs, and his condition worsened after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
