Kim Scott Mathers: the Story of Eminem’s Relationship with His Ex-Wife
It is possible that Kim Scott Maters, Eminem’s ex-wife was not going to become famous.
However, rapper Eminem wrote songs about her and their relationship, quite tough, such as the track “Kim” (The Marshall Mathers LP album 2000), track “Remind Me” ( Revival album 2017), and frankly track”Bad Husband” ( Revival album 2017).
Despite their tumultuous relationship, there were strong feelings between them, otherwise, their relationship could not last for almost 20 years, as a result, they had a common daughter and two children whom Eminem adopted.
Let’s forget about the rapper’s texts where he describes his ex-wife and try to find out about the real Kim Scott Mathers.
Love at high school
The future Eminem’s wife, Kimberly Anne Scott was born on January 9, 1975, in the Сity of Warren, Michigan, and she was one of the twin sisters born at Kathleen Lou Doherty. There is no information about the biological father of the sisters. Their mother married Casimer Sluck, who had problems with alcohol, therefore, Kim’s and Dawn’s childhood cannot be called happy.
Kim met Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known as Eminem at the age of thirteen, at a house party with friends. By the way, Kim, her sister Dawn, and Eminem studied at the same school, Lincoln High School.
Most likely, the girl was fascinated by a daring guy a couple of years older than she, and feelings broke out between them. Their relationship began in 1989 and soon, Kim, along with her twin sister Dawn Scott, ran away from home to live with Marshall in the house of his mother Debbie.
Eminem stubbornly worked on his career, and soon the young rapper attracted the attention of producer Mark Bass, who decided to cooperate with him.
When the growth of the rapper’s career was outlined, there was a surprise in his personal life as Kim became pregnant.
Daughter Hailie Jade Scott Mathers
Hailie Jade Scott is the only biological daughter of Eminem and Kimberly Anne Scott. The girl was born on December 25, 1995.
Kim’s unplanned pregnancy was a shock for Eminem, but despite this, he did not abandon his responsibility and the role of the father.
According to his colleagues, Eminem worked a lot, since he did not want his child to grow up in poverty as he did.
During this period, the couple’s relations began to deteriorate. Frequent scandals and financial problems caused their first break up in 1996, then Eminem got back to his mother, and Kim with their daughter to the rented apartment.
Eminem expresses his anger and resentment in the track “97 Bonnie and Clyde”.
According to Eminem, he took his daughter to the music studio and used her voice to write down a song where about the murder of her mother. Kim was furious about this!
Hailie spent most of her childhood and youth in the suburbs of Detroit with her father and cousin.
In 2014, she graduated from school, and then she studied psychology at the University of Michigan. “My daughter graduated from college,” Eminem proudly admitted at Mike Tyson’s YouTube show in March 2020.
At the moment, Hailie’s life is much quiet than her parents’. Since she graduated from the University in 2018 the girl has been dating Evan Mcclintock for more than 5 years and the famous father approves of their relationship.
The couple’s relations lasted more than 10 years before they got married in 1999.
They got married before Eminem left with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and many other rappers on the “Up in Smoke” tour. Later, Kim admitted that the main reason for this marriage was her jealousy and the desire to “hold” Eminem during the tour. One thing is clear, the period of their first marriage was puzzle-headed.
According to Kim, the famous Eminem’s alter-ego Slim Shady, destroyed her self-esteem that she even tried to commit suicide in 2000. She also added that Eminem’s popularity was the reason for great jealousy on her part and she felt miserable and rejected.
In 2001, the couple divorced, but they agreed on joint custody of their daughter.
After the first divorce in 2001, thanks to the joint custody of the common daughter, Hailie, Kim, and Eminem supported communication.
After a series of quarrels and reconciliations, in 2006 they again decided to get married again.
After the first divorce, Kim met a man named Eric Hatter, and in 2002 they greeted a common a daughter, whom Eminem adopted when they start to be a couple again.
Eminem managed to become a father three times: in 1995 he got Hailie Mathers, and later in 2005 he adopted Kim’s daughter – Whitney Scott Mathers, and Kim’s twin sister daughter – Alaina Marie Mathers.
Kim Mathers explained that in this way they wanted to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their relationship. But … “and then, after 41 days, February 25, Marshall left”.
After that, rumors appeared about the reunification of the rapper and his ex, but in 2010, Eminem officially denied this information.
Although the second marriage is short-lived after this couple began to build friendly relations for the sake of their little joint daughter.
To the question, is Eminem married now? The answer will be that he is not currently married.
Kim Mathers and her twin sister Dawn Scott
Kim and her sister Dawn suffered from harmful addictiveness. Unfortunately, unlike Kim, who was able to defeat alcohol and drug addiction, her sister failed, and she died from a heroin overdose in January 2016.
Although there is no information about when exactly Dawn began to have problems with drugs, it is known Kim and Marshall took care of her daughter Alaina since childhood.
A few months before her death, Dawn said to RadarOnline that in the most difficult times Kim and Marshall refused her help.
“I have a millionaire brother-in-law and a sister with money up the a**, but they’re refusing to give me any help,”Dawn Scott
Despite the fact that Dawn condemned her sister for not helping her, Kim took care of her sister and after her death, Kim wrote a touching necrologist with the words of love.
Daughter Whitney Scott Mathers
In 2021, the daughter of Kimberly Scott was in the spotlight of the media.
Whitney was revealed as a Gender-fluid person and asked to call her Stevie. She made this statement in Tiktok, and her family supported her. Stevie signed as he/ she/ they on Instagram.
Publishing her photos with a short haircut and piercing in the nose, Whitney in past said she was becoming more confident.
Recall that Eminem adopted a girl after he reunited with her mother Kimberly after a long parting. And even after the break, the rapper did not stop taking care of their biological and adopted children.
Kimberly gave birth to Stevie six months after the divorce from Eminem in 2001 – at that time rapper was already the father of Hailie. Kimberly has a tendency to depression and more than once made an attempt to suicide. The biological father of Stevie, the tattoo artist Eric Hartter, died of a drug overdose in 2019.
Eminem tried to protect children from the attention of the media, only once he gave an interview to Rolling Stone in 2004, where he spoke about raising children.
Kim is a suicidal person
Eminem’s ex-wife Kim and the mother of his only biological daughter attempted suicide a few times.
She once attempted to take her life by slitting her wrist when Eminem assaulted her during his “Up in Smoke” Tour in 2001.
In 2015, she fell into a serious car accident, and after a while, she admitted that she wanted to die in this way.
Three months after the accident, Kimberly began treatment for depression. Even more, her psychological state was aggravated by the death of her twin sister Dawn Scott.
Next time, according to TMZ, on July 30, 2021, the police responded to a call from Kimberly’s neighbors, who reported that she was going to commit suicide. At the address in Michigan, emergency workers immediately found her at Kim’s home in a pool of blood.
