Kim Mathers

Kim Mathers seems to be in better health. She has even been released earlier to start her rehabilitation program in Minnesota.

According to the latest Michigan Court decision, Kim seems to be ready for her anti drugs treatment. The good news for her: if Kim manages to follow her 30 days rehabilitation program, she will be able to complete her two years of probation.

This time, Kim’s rehabilitation program will be a real test for her. After failing and dropping out several times, she will have to prove her good will and her ability to clean up her act.

Since her latest arrestation, Kim hasn’t been able to see Hailie. The fact that she probably misses her daughter might increase her will to get rid of her cocaine addiction. Of course, Kim Mathers is no angel. But she is not the monster some media are trying to picture her either. She’s a regular woman who has experienced a lot of difficulties in her life. Her addiction has certainly altered her vision of life and she will need some support and encouragements from her family.
Is Kim gonna make it?

Time will tell.

The Star Magazine recently published an article informing the public about Kim Mathers� detention time in jail.
After two months of detention, Kim is feeling down. She�s been deprived of Marshall and Hailie�s visits. She feels abandoned and all alone.

According to a close source to the Mathers family, � Kim’s really bummed out that Marshall and especially Hailie, hasn’t visited � �

Some people may wonder why. But people who perfectly know Marshall also know how much protective he is towards Hailie.
According to Todd Nelson, Eminem thinks that his daughter could be traumatized if she saw her mom behind bars, which is understandable:

Marshall feels it would traumatize Hailie to see her mother behind bars, having to talk to her through a window and not being able to even touch her mommy.”

Marshall could have visited Kim alone. Then why hasn�t he done it? Maybe because there is a little bit resentment inside of him. After all, Kim has made his life a living hell for months, she has disappeared without thinking about the consequences.
Kim didn�t even care about what could happen to her daughters and to Alaina, her twin sister�s daughter who�s been adopted by Marshall.
Kim has shown a lot of irresponsibility in her behavior and no wonder if her ex husband is mad at her.
But Kim�s behavior is the behavior of an addicted woman, who loses herself in the world of drugs instead of facing her problem. The publics� eye has no mercy for a woman, whose personal life is constantly exposed: Kim is going through bad times like anybody of us has been through. It is just that our mistakes are not exposed publicly.
Kim run away several times since she was facing cocaine charges. Her whereabouts explain a wish to escape to the real world and they are certainly a strong SOS call towards her entourage.
Kim wants some attention, especially from Marshall.

It looks like this time she will have to prove her good will to Marshall.

According to the same friend of the Mathers� family, Eminem�s ex wife is now conscious of her mistakes and that she has hurt a lot of people through her irresponsible behavior:

� She realizes she’s let a lot of people down by her behavior. �

She also expressed the wish to accept the help she need, which sounds rather encouraging:

“She’s vowed to straighten herself out and stay clean. She’s eager to stick to a rehab program and get the help she needs.”

Will Kim clean up her act? Time will tell.

Is Kim gonna make it ?

It seems like Kim Mathers has been in trouble since a long time. She�s been arrested for cocaine charges while Eminem was touring in Europe last year.
Since June 2003 till now, Eminem�s ex wife has made the headlines. The tabloids haven�t stopped talking about her.

Kim�s cocaine addiction problems seem go back to 2001. In 2001, Kim had also had problems with justice for the same reasons.
From June 2003 to June 2004, Kim has tried to run away several times from justice, causing her family members a lot of trouble. It seems like Kim can�t get rid of her addiction problems.

But there might be more difficulties hidden behind Kim�s behavior. While trying to run away from justice, we may ask : what else was Kim Mathers trying to escape from ?
It is more than obvious that she was trying to send some SOS calls all around people from her entourage, and aimed at Eminem, in particular. Maybe there is also a little bit of manipulation in her behavior. Like many alcoholics, drug addicts also try to attract people�s attention. They obviously want people to pity them.
Kim�s behavior is also the expression of her unhappiness and unsatisfaction. If it wasn�t the case, she wouldn�t have risked to lose Hailie�s custody.
Something is going wrong in her life. Some people would argue : she�s rich, she�s got everything to be happy, she�s got two beautiful little girls etc�
To those people, I would like to say : you don�t know details about her every day life. And maybe sometimes Eminem�s fame is something really hard to carry for her.
On June the 15th 2004, Kim has been arrested at an hotel in Ann Arbor, Michigan. On June the 30th, she�s been sentenced to one year of jail, but she will have to serve only 140 days in jail ans she will have to complete a drug treatment afterwards. If she fails, she risks one more year of jail.
I have seen people on an anti Kim website expressing happy comments about Kim being jailed. Can�t you selfish people see the problem from Hailie�s point of view ? A little girl doesn�t understand what happens to her mom and why she can�t see her.
Don�t accuse my article of being � pro � or � anti � Kim. I am not � pro � nor � anti � Kim either. I am just an investigative journalist (who happens to be a huge Eminem fan) and who is trying to keep as objective as possible about Kim. To those people from the anti Kim board who are happy about Kim�s issues, I find your attitude more than despicable. You don�t know this woman. And to your info, she still got a lot of importance in Marshall�s eyes, so in your place, I would respect that.

Besides her drug addiction, Kim Mathers is experiencing serious personal problems. She will need some medical help and to show some good will if she wants to overcome her bad times. Let�s wish her good luck for the future.

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) � The ex-wife of rapper Eminem was sentenced Wednesday to at least four months in jail for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program without permission:

http://www.mlive.com/newsflash/michigan/index.ssf?/base/news-16/1088613690105280.xml

Macomb County Circuit Judge Edward Servitto sentenced Kim Mathers to a year in jail, but she only will have to serve 140 days if she completes a drug treatment program in jail and then attends another program in Hazel Park after being released, said Russ Marlan, spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Mathers twice has dropped out of a court-ordered drug treatment program. She served some jail time earlier this year after dropping out the first time.

Police arrested Mathers in an Ann Arbor hotel room on June 15 after a caller reported she was staying there. A warrant for Mathers had been issued in April.

Mathers was placed on probation after pleading guilty to charges of possessing 25 grams or less of cocaine and failing to give adequate space to an emergency vehicle. The charges stemmed from a 2003 traffic stop in St. Clair Shores.

Mathers and Eminem, whose legal name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, have a daughter, Hailie Jade Mathers.

The press has spilled a lot of ink about Marshall and Kim�s story, the media have constantly displayed lots of details about their privacy, but probably the most objective and honest sentences can be found in Marshall and Kim�s own statements when they both talk about each other.
Eminem tells us that his relationship to Kim has been far from easy:

“Me and the missus, we go at it. It’s no secret, we’ve had our share of problems.”

Eminem has shared his problems and his frustrations about with his public. To people who reproach him to have talked about killing his baby�s mom in his songs his answer is:

“Look. I was pissed off!” That’s all I could say. I really felt that I wanted to do that shit. At one point in time, I really wanted to do that shit. For real.”

When Eminem is pissed off and feels really bad, he wants to shares his feelings of the moment with his audience.

Kim used to get mad at Marshall talking about killing her in his songs:

� Kim used to get mad when I rapped about wanting to kill her. �

When Kim reproached him to put her in his songs, he answered:

‘look if you piss me off when I’m writing a song, you might be in it.’

That rule also applies to anybody who will try to anger Marshall.

You might have heard a lot of cusswords and insults towards Kim in Eminem�s songs. But if Eminem puts her on a record, that also means that Kim is worth writing about her, even if the song expresses a lot of pain and anger.

“My baby’s mother put me through a lot of shit, so she’s worth a lot of songs.”

Eminem fans- female fans in particular- need to be very cautious when they start talking about Kim or Hailie, because they should know Marshall may not appreciate it at all:

“Just because I talk about my daughter and put her in my songs, or I say something about Kim in my songs, doesn’t give you the right or nobody else to talk about ‘em and feel free to do so.”

Why use demeaning words against this woman, Kim, that you don�t even know? Many female fans have totally misinterpreted �97 Bonnie And Clyde� and �Kim�, ignoring that Marshall�s songs were both reconciliation attempts. Eminem clearly expressed it in the introduction to the lyrics of the songs in his book �Angry Blonde� which defines the context of each song.

The way Kim described Marshall is quite interesting too. She defines him a a �down to earth guy�, who really loves his fans:

“Marshall is just a down-to-earth guy. Neighbor kids always mob him to sign their shirt. He loves his fans. I look at him as Marshall- not as a famous person.”

Fame hasn�t altered Marshall�s simplicity and that�s also one reason why he is so much appreciated by his fans:

“We aren’t going around with diamond rings and fur coats. [Eminem] earned his money the hard way. His anger for his mother comes out in his songs. He owes her nothing.”

Kim eventually expressed what caused her a lot of pain: the nearly total exposure of her privacy:

Just because my husband is an entertainer, that does not mean that our personal business is for everyone’s entertainment purposes.”

Knowing that the invasion of the Mathers� privacy has increased more and more (some people even managed to sell Eminem and Kim�s correspondance on ebay by putting their dirty noses in Eminem�s trash), the call towards fans to respect it is much more than an emergency call.

Marshall and Kim have known each other since the time they were teenagers. Moreover, Kim grew up at Debbie�s home as his foster sister.

Both started dating when Marshall was about 16. Because it has constantly been off and on,their relationship has often been qualified of being �rocky� and �volatile�. Marshall and Kim have a daughter, Hailie Jade, in common, who was born on Christmas day in 1995.

Marshall and Kim were married in June 1999 and chose to separate legally in August 2000. His divorce was certainly a hard pill to swallow for Eminem. During this dark period of his life, Marshall and Kim�s privacy have been exposed more than ever. When he caught Kim cheating on him with John Guerra, Marshall took the decision to divorce in early June. Then in July, Kim attempted suicide at their home in Sterling Heights in presence of her mom (Kathleen Sluck, who gave the 911 call) and of Eminem�s brother Nathan.

Marshall was the first to file divorce papers against Kim in August 2000, because he saw this divorce as unavoidable. You will be able to check out his divorce complaint here:

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/emdivorce1.html

Then, in December 2000, Eminem and Kim tried to work out their problems and to give their marriage a second chance.

Both signed an agreement to dismiss the divorce claims, also for their daughter Hailie�s highest interest.

But, then again, Kim filed divorce against Marshall in March 2000: she was seeking now physical and legal custody of Hailie, for high childcare costs. Kim was also trying to prove Marshall was unfit to raise Hailie.

The Court decided that Marshall was a �loving, devoted� father and allowed Marshall to share custody of his daughter. The childcare costs had been set to $142,480 a year.

She also had a 10 Million $ lawsuit inside her palm for defamation: Kim was suing Marshall for defamation on the song �Kim�. Many people may argue that the song �Kim� ended Eminem�s marriage with Kim, which is something I really doubt. Let me tell you why.

The song �Kim� was written in 1998, at a time both were separated. The song �Kim� was a way for Marshall to get Kim back in his life. It was just another way to tell her:

Look, this is how I feel about the way you treated me. I do suffer a lot. But I definitly want you back in my life. Can�t live without you.�

�Kim� is not the only �lyrical murder� of Marshall�s baby�s mom. In his song �97 Bonnie and Clyde, Kim gets murdered as well. And, as far as we know, Kim didn�t react that badly to the �Bonnie and Clyde� song nor to the �Kim� song, that Eminem and his ex wife used to call �the media�s favorite�:

�When Kim first heard 97 Bonnie and Clyde she said ‘Your an asshole…bla bla bla…but when she heard the song Kim, it’s funny because I will always remember this, we were sitting in the car. I looked at her and I said ‘Well, do you have anything to say?’ She looked over at me and said ‘Your crazy, seriously…your fuckin’ crazy!”(Eminem)

Then how shall we explain Kim�s sudden ressentment against Marshall?

We should remember that Eminem was performing on stage at the �Up In Smoke Tour� with a naked Kim doll. A Kim doll he was beating up on stage. Which Kim felt as humiliating.

Some other facts may also remain in the shadow of the public’s eye.

Eminem�s divorce has been finalized in March 2001. Eminem and Kim have been back together several times since their divorce. It has been on and off, again and again. Their relationship is far from being simple: there is a lot of pain, anger, frustration, addiction love and hate inside of it.

Marshall has made an attempt to define it in his recent and beautiful song �I Love You More� in which he warns anybody who is trying to stereotype his relationship to Kim:

�And anybody who thinks they know us doesn’t know shit…�

Don�t try to judge a story that escapes to the ordinary rules of conventional couples…

Kimberly Mathers reportedly missed drug treatment

News Staff Reporter
The ex-wife of rapper Eminem was arrested at an Ann Arbor hotel Tuesday, two months after a felony warrant was issued for her arrest for an alleged probation violation on a drug conviction, authorities said.

A tip led police to Weber’s Inn on the city’s west side after a caller reported that Kimberly Mathers was staying there and was possibly wanted on a warrant, Ann Arbor Police Lt. Michael Logghe said.

Officers saw a woman they believed was 28-year-old Mathers walking from the back door of the room toward the pool and back to the room, and when they asked her name, she said “Julie,” Logghe said. She initially refused to let officers into her room and shut the door, but she eventually allowed an officer inside and admitted she was Mathers, Logghe said.

It’s unclear how long Mathers had been staying at the hotel.

An felony probation violation warrant for Mathers was issued by a Macomb County judge in April when she failed to return to a court-ordered drug treatment program. Mathers pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in January and was ordered to serve 30 days in the county jail and then transfer to an inpatient substance abuse treatment program for an additional 90 days.

After she was arrested, Mathers was turned over to authorities in Macomb County, Logghe said.

Mathers and Eminem, whose legal name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, have a daughter named Hailie Jade Mathers.

On January the 9th 1975, Kathleen Sluck (Kim�s mother) gave birth to twins: Kim and Dawn.

Kim was born in Detroit. Her and her sister�s childhood was quite horrible. At the age of 13, both sisters had to run away from an alcoholics� home. Appearently, Kim�s stepfather was abusive towards her.
We have very few infos about Kim�s twin sister.
Dawn Scott is the mom of three children: Alaina, Adam and Amy.
Alaina Scott currently lives with Marshall. The little girl has been adopted by Eminem. Alaina�s twin brother is Adam who was born mentally and physically handicapped, because Dawn was taking drugs during her pregnancy. The little boy lives at his father�s family. Alaina and Adam are 11 years old.
Amy is about 8/9 years old and she currently lives with Dawn.

When she was 13, Debbie Mathers raised Kim as her own daughter. Things started to become worse between Debbie and Kim when she started dating Marshall.
When Marshall and Kim left Debbie�s home, they moved to a bad neighborhood. Kim nearly got killed by a stray bullet that came through their kitchen window while she was doing the washing up:

“The neighborhoods we lived in fucking sucked. I went through four TVs and five VCRs in two years.” (Kim)

Some people say that Kim never ever worked. Which is partially untrue. Kim used to work as a masseuse in 1998, at a time she had broken up with Marshall.
On Kim�s biographical info from Michigan Court, you will lear that Marshall is not the only one to have some tattoos:

http://www.state.mi.us/mdoc/asp/otis2profile.asp?mdocNumber=482804

It is interesting to notice that three girls� names are tatooed on her index: Alaina, Whitney and Hailie.

Warrant issued for Mathers after failing to return to treatment facility

http://www.freep.com/news/statewire/sw95800_20040407.htm

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — An arrest warrant was issued for rapper Eminem’s ex-wife on Wednesday, a day after she failed to return to a court-ordered drug treatment program, a spokesman for the state Department of Corrections said.

Kimberley Mathers didn’t return to a Macomb County treatment facility on Tuesday, corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said. After being taken to a doctor’s appointment that day, she was supposed to attend a nearby Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meeting and then return to the facility, he said.

Macomb County Circuit Judge Edward Servitto signed an arrest warrant for her Wednesday afternoon, Marlan said.

Marlan said authorities contacted members of Mathers’ family, but they said they didn’t know where she was.

Tuesday marked at least the second time Mathers dropped out of a court-ordered drug treatment program. She served some jail time after leaving the program late last month.

Servitto on Feb. 12 ordered Mathers to serve 30 days in the county jail and then be transferred to an inpatient substance abuse treatment program for an additional 90 days.

The 28-year-old had been sentenced on Jan. 21 to two years’ probation after pleading guilty to charges of possessing 25 grams or less of cocaine and failing to give adequate space to an emergency vehicle. The charges stemmed from a June traffic stop in St. Clair Shores.

Mathers and Eminem, whose legal name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, have a daug

Kim�s rehabilitation programm

To all the people who still take the song �Kim� literally, let me tell you this: Eminem�s ex wife Kim is very lucky to have Marshall to take care of her and her kids.
After serving a 30 days sentence for her cocaine charges, Kim is now in Memphis. She precisely spends some time at the Sacred Heart Rehabilitaion Center in Tennessee. Her reahabilitation programm costs Eminem the huge amount of $50,000:

People who know Eminem will know that he doesn�t pay out of obligation, but out of love for his family. Hailie has been through hard times since her mom has been incarcerated and she certainly misses her a lot.
Eminem feels concerned by Kim�s well being.
Appearently, Kim was facing a lot of problems in jail. A spokeswoman from the jail she had been incarcerated in said:

�Kim was having problems in jail, but she did serve her entire 30 days.”

If we believe Todd Nelson�s statements, her detention conditions weren�t that good:

“She’s relieved to be out of prison and out of that jumpsuit. Now she can wear her own clothes, have a private room and get better food.�

It is also known that Kim has �country club� priviledges at the center. Eminem and Hailie are expected to visit her soon.

No matter what he�s been through because of Kim, Eminem�s forgiveness is wonderful. Hopefully Kim will realize how much Marshall is devoted to her and her children and stop taking drugs for her family�s
