Eminem's daughter Hailie Scott Mathers opens up about her relationship with her dad
Hailie Scott has featured in many of Eminem's Grammy-Winning songs and now she talks about her close relationship with the rapper
Eminem's daughter Hailie Scott Mathers, who has recently graduated from Michigan State University, has opened up about her close relationship with her father.
In a recent interview with the Daily Mail published on Monday, the 22-year-old said that they share a close bond. “Of course, we are very close,” she said when asked if Eminem was supportive of her.
Hailie Scott Mathers is Eminem’s only biological daughter with ex Kim Mathers, to whom he was married twice before ultimately splitting in 2006. Scott has featured in rapper's many Grammy-winning songs from 2004's 'Mockingbird' to several references on his latest album 'Revival' released last December.
The 45-year-old musician also dedicated the track 'Castle' entirely to Scott. Written in the form of annual letters to his daughter, the rapper shares insight into his approach to fatherhood.
The track begins with Scott’s birth and continues on through her early years, with Eminem stating that he feels guilty for making her the subject of his songs — even though they are a large part of the reason he’s been able to provide for his family.
“I said your name but always tried to hide your face,” he raps. “This game is crazy, I wanted to claim my love for you but damn. I never knew it’d be like this. If I did, I wouldn’t have done it. You ain’t asked for none of this s... Now you’re being punished? Things that should’ve been private with me and your mother is public.”
Meanwhile, in the same interview, she said she's not quite sure about what she wants to do next because it's "still up in the air." She added that various brands have been reaching out to her via Instagram since she does not have a management of her own. “People have been reaching out through [Instagram], as I don’t have any [management].”
Hailie completed her studies in Psychology and she told the publication that she is thinking about becoming an influencer. She is keenly interested in the beauty industry and showing off her makeup skills, though she’s not sure she wants to live life in the spotlight. She also made it clear that she has no interest in following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a musician.
Scott spends time in Detroit, Michigan with her mother, Kimberly Anne Scott, and half-siblings Whitney and Parker. She lives in her own four-bedroom house minutes away. She has been in a relationship with a fellow MSU student Evan McClintock for over two years now and often shares photos on social media.
McClintock is a fan of Eminem, the Mail reports and, good for him, his girlfriend’s dad is apparently very approving of their relationship.
