Who is Kimberly Anne Scott?
Kimberly Ann Scott is more popular as Kim, Eminem’s ex-wife. She was born on 9 January 1975, in Warren, Michigan, USA, and grew up in a troubled family, with an abusive father. Her twin sister Dawn and Kim ran away from their home when they were only thirteen years old, and she would possibly never have come to public notice except for her relationship with American rapper Eminem, and because of the tremendous problems the couple had. Eminem has sung about her in several of his songs. Kimberly was brought to the edge on several occasions because of her tumultuous relationship, and after a suicide attempt began heavily abusing drugs. While music was an essential part for the beginning of their relationship, Eminem and Kim mostly argued about the rappers’ music career and the fame related to it.

Kim’s Weight and Height
Kim is regarded as a very attractive woman, with blond hair and blue eyes, despite drugs taking a toll on her looks. Her height is 5ft 7ins (1.74mt), and she reputedly weighs around 150lbs (68kgs).
Kim’s husband is the famous American rapper Eminem. Eminem was born on 17 October, 1972 in Detroit, and met Kim when he was fifteen at a house party where he was singing “I am bad” by LL Cool J. Eminem is the main reason why Kim became known to the public, as their relationship inspired some of the rapper’s greatest hits. In the end of it all, the two did not manage to find a balance in their relationship ended when they officially separated in 2006.
Kim’s net worth is currently estimated by authoritative sources at over $2 million. Kim and Eminem fought a prolonged custody battle over four children, after their first divorce in 2001, which ended in a settlement for Eminem to pay weekly child support of $1000 to Kim, $52,000 yearly. There is no other confirmed information on Kim’s professional life and earnings as she shies away from the media and publicity.
Kimberly Scott has a total of four children, just a biological daughter with Eminem, whose name is Hailie Jade. Kim also has a son called Parker Scott from a another relationship, and during her relationship with Eminem she cheated on several occasions, including a brief relationship with Eric Hartter, and gave birth to his daughter Whitney Scott Mathers. Eric Hartter was never present in Whitney’s life, and she hasn’t even met him, which is why Eminem became her legal parent after adopting her when she was very young. Kim and Eminem also adopted Dawn’s daughter Alaina Marie Mathers, because Kim’s sister was unable to take care of her due to her own problems with drugs. Despite Kim and Eminem’s troublesome relationship, their kids were always taken care of, and the rapper has sung about his daughters in several of his songs, declaring his love for them.
Kim and her twin sister Dawn came from a troubled family, and constantly suffered because of their abusive father. The sisters met with Marshall Mathers when they were only thirteen years old, and moved in with him and his mother that same night. Dawn had a complex relationship both with Kim and with Eminem, as she felt they did not help her enough with her drug problems. According to her ,both Kim and Eminem were well off financially ,and had the ability to aid her when she was struggling with her addiction, but decided they did not want to do that. Kim and Eminem adopted Dawn’s daughter Alaina because Dawn was unable to provide adequate care in the intoxicated state she was constantly in.
Unfortunately, Dawn fell victim to her drug addiction, and was found dead of an overdose in her trailer in 2016, not far away from where Eminem used to live. A close friend of Dawn said that in the days leading up to her death, she was willing to take almost anything as long as it gave her a high. The months after Dawn’s death was very hard for Eminem and Kim – both of them had also had close calls with death. After attending one of her husband’s concerts where he intentionally abused a blow-up doll which was meant to impersonate Kim, she tried to commit suicide by slicing her wrists. For his part, Eminem overdosed on prescription medication in 2008, and the doctors in the hospital where he was admitted told him he only had two hours left to live.
Kim’s arrests and drug use
Much like her sister Kim did not stray far from drugs. There were several occasions on which she was arrested for driving under the influence. During one of the arrests a bag filled with a “white powdery substance” fell out on the back seat of the police car, and Kim was charged with possession as well.
