Kimberley Mathers, the once and likely future ex-wife of hip-hop star Eminem, filed court papers last week asking for financial support and physical custody of the couple’s 10-year-old daughter.
Mathers’ attorney, Michael J. Smith, filed her response to Eminem’s divorce petition and a counter-complaint April 26 in Macomb County Circuit Court. In the filings, she asks for Eminem, who was born Marshall Mathers, to pay her attorney fees for the divorce proceedings, as well as the cost of the mortgage, insurance and utilities for the home the couple shared in Clinton Township.
The documents also state that she wants to share legal custody of the couple’s daughter, Halie, but wants Eminem to provide child support.
Her filings shed no light on what led Eminem to file for divorce last month, just 82 days after they wed in Rochester Hills. They first married in 1999 and divorced in 2001.
Eminem’s divorce filing said the couple have a prenuptial agreement.
Attorneys for Eminem and Mathers did not return calls seeking comment Tuesday.
