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.
