Eminem is headed to Macomb Circuit Court this Monday (March 26) after recently filing a motion to stop his ex-wife Kim Mathers from publicly bad-mouthing him.
According to the Detroit News, Eminem, (real name Marshall Mathers III), recently filed a motion seeking to prohibit ex-wife Kim Mathers from making further “derogatory, disparaging, inflammatory and otherwise negative comments” about him publicly, claiming that such comments are potentially harmful to their 11-year-old daughter Hailie.
“For girls in the 11 to 14 age range, personal embarrassment is one of their most powerful and painful emotions. If by some chance the child missed a particularly pungent insult about her father by her mother, it is all but certain that her friends and her friends parents are aware of it and that it will be shared with her. This Court must enter an order to protect the child from further harm by requiring that (Kim) desist from any further behavior likely to expose the minor child to humiliation and hostility,” the court document reads.
Since their second divorce was finalized this past December, Kim has granted a number of television and radio interviews. Eminem cites some of her negative comments in his court motion including claims that he is “slacking very much when it comes to the kids,” and that there is “nothing positive” between the rapper and his daughter.
Last month, Kim appeared on WKQI-FM’s (95.5) “Mojo in the Morning” show and spoke about her ex in detail, saying “I can’t stand him. He’s an absolutely horrible person and he gets worse everyday. I vomit in my mouth whenever I’m around him or I hear his name.” She added that sex with the rap superstar was “bad” and claimed, “he’s not very well-endowed… If you’re going to have sex with Marshall, make sure you have a little blue pill, because otherwise it does not work.” Additionally, Kim made claims that Em was “always yelling and complaining,” around the children and that Hailie regularly asked her “Why is Dad acting so weird?”
Kim justified her comments by saying the interview was her chance to speak up in defense of the negative things Eminem has said about her on his records.
The couple originally married in 1999 and later divorced in October 2001. The pair would reconcile in late 2004 before tying the knot again in January 2006. The second marriage would last less than three months, with Eminem filing for divorce on April 5. The couple agreed to an out-of-court settlement to share custody of Hailie. The Mathers also adopted Kim’s niece Alaina, who is 12. Kim has another daughter, three-year-old Whitney, from another relationship.
