Is Eminem's ex-wife OK? Kimberly Anne 'Kim' Scott attempts suicide AGAIN
The former wife of Marshall Bruce Mathers III, known professionally as Eminem, allegedly tried to kill herself. Kimberly Anne 'Kim' Scott, previously named Kimberly Anne Mathers, was admitted to a hospital after a suicide attempt at her home in Michigan on July 30.
TMZ reported that police and emergency workers arrived at the address after getting a call about a suicidal person at her house. When they reached, Scott was so aggressive that officers had to restrain her. Her combative behavior also made it difficult for paramedics to check her vitals.
According to sources, Eminem's former wife had cut herself. A number of small lacerations on the back of her leg were found along with a good quantity of blood on the floor. She was soon shifted to a hospital for medical as well as psychological checkups. Scott has reportedly been discharged now and is said to be at her home recovering from the injuries. However, it’s not clear if she's getting additional care.
Scott and Eminem were married for years. After tying the knot in 1999, they divorced each other in 2001. Bizarrely, they remarried each other for a very short period of time in 2006. The pair shares a daughter together, named Hailie Jade, who was born in December 1995. Last year in March, Eminem declared how proud he feels as a father of Hailie. During an appearance on Mike Tyson's ‘Hot Boxin' podcast, the 48-year-old said, “Hailie is 23, no babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good, she’s made me proud for sure, she’s graduated from college. So when I think about my accomplishments that’s probably the thing I’m the most proud of is that – is being able to raise kids.”
It has been said Eminem and Scott met when they were teenagers. However, after having a rocky relationship, they finally parted ways in 2006 after remarrying for a few months. In 2000, Eminem even released a song called ‘Kim’, through which he alleged that she cheated on him. The song also suggested domestic violence with Eminem portraying as beating his former wife because of her cheating behavior and even taking her life. Scott last made news in 2015 after being involved in a car accident. At the time also, she allegedly tried to take her life. She spoke to Detroit-based radio show 'Mojo in the Morning' about the incident and said, “I sat at the end of a road where I knew that no one else but myself would get hurt. Yes, I drank, I took pills, I hit the gas and aimed for a pole.”
Scott also confirmed at the time that her relationship with Eminem was good. “He has been real supportive. We are really close friends. We are just trying to raise our kids together and make it as normal for them as possible,” she added. Apart from Hailie, the separated couple has two more kids. One is Whitney, Kim’s daughter whom Eminem adopted, and Alaina, the daughter of Kim’s late twin sister, whom also they adopted.
