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.
