In recent weeks, Eminem fans have become fascinated by the rapper’s 21-year-old daughter Hailie Scott, who’s been posting regularly on her Instagram account. But interest in the brunette beauty has also left fans wondering about her mom, Kimberly Anne Scott.
The 42-year-old was married not once but twice to the Grammy winner. They initially met after Kimberly and her twin sister Dawn ran away from home at the age of 13. The duo eventually starting living with Eminem (whose real name is Marshall Mathers) and his family. Soon after, Kim began dating the musician.

The couple welcomed Hailie on Christmas Day 1995 when Kim was 20 and Eminem was 23. Though having a child put a strain on their relationship, they tied the knot in 1999, but divorced two years later, in part because of an onstage incident in 2000. Not only did the singer record a song in which he describes killing her and burying the body, but he also assaulted a blow-up doll during one of his concerts, which served as a stand-in for Kim. She attempted suicide shortly after.

Despite years of turmoil, the pair remarried in January 2006, but the 8 Mile star filed for divorce again after just three months.
Kim has had a few run-ins with the law since her first split from Eminem. She was charged with felony cocaine possession in 2003 and was sentenced to 30 days in jail after violating her probation. She also received a fine and probation in 2015 after drunkenly crashing her car into a utility pole. Her defense attorney claimed it was a suicide attempt.

Along with Hailie, Kim has a 14-year-old daughter named Whitney with ex Eric Hartter. Eminem gained full custody of the teen amid Kim’s legal troubles. He also has custody of Dawn’s daughter, Alaina, which he was granted before her death in January 2016.
These days, Kim appears to be doing much better after receiving treatment for substance abuse.
