How Old Is Kim Scott, and Where Was She Born?

Kim was born Kimberly Anne Scott on January 9, 1975, in Warren, Michigan, United States. While the name of her biological father is not known, it’s common knowledge that her mother’s is Kathleen Scott. There’s no information about whether or not Kim’s parents were married, but reports have it that they parted ways at some point, and her mother got married to a man named Casimer Sluck.

Kim had a twin sister whose name was Dawn Scoot. They both grew up in Michigan and faced a lot of difficulties during their childhood. According to Kim, she was abused by her alcoholic stepfather, Casimer, when she was young, and as a result, she and her sister decided to run away from home. They moved to a youth home on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan, back in 1998. Sadly, Dawn died in January 2016 (at the age of 41) after consuming prohibited substances.

Kim Met Eminem When They Were Both Teenagers

Eminem is known to be very private when it comes to the happenings in his personal life. However, we get to know most of what we know from the lyrics of his songs and rare interviews either Kim or he has granted over the years.

Kimberly Scott and Eminem were both in their early teens when they first met; Eminem was 15 while Kim was 13. They met at a house party where Eminem was singing I Am Bad by LL Cool J while standing shirtless on a table. Kim was instantly drawn to him. They spent time talking at the party, and that marked the beginning of their relationship.

It has been said that music brought them together, but that’s not the only thing they bonded on. Just like Kim, Eminem also had a rough childhood, and it was a major contributing factor to the development of their relationship.

When the party was over, Kimberly told Eminem that she and her twin sister, Dawn, needed a safer place to live and asked him if they could move in with him, and he agreed. Meanwhile, Eminem was still living with his mother, Debbie Nelson, at the time. When he came home with the sisters, his mother was surprised, but with the passing of each day, she became fonder of Kim. According to her, Kim was beautiful, curvaceous, and looked older than her actual age.

Within the period Kim lived in Eminem’s house, they started dating. Along the line, Kim got pregnant, but before then, their relationship was already soured due to several reasons, including Eminem’s success. Nevertheless, Kim had their first and only biological child in 1995.

Eminem and Kim Scott Got Married in 1999, Divorced in 2001

Even with a child in the picture, the relationship between Kim and Eminem remained on and off, forcing Kim to move out of Eminem’s house with their child. Subsequently, they reconciled and tied the knot on June 14, 1999, when Eminem’s popularity was at its peak. However, by 2001, their marriage was officially over, as it did nothing to keep their relationship from collapsing.

According to Kim, they parted ways because Eminem falsely accused her of cheating. A report by Daily Mail revealed that the rapper showed up at a bar where Kim was and hit a man (John Guerra, the American devotional music singer-songwriter) with an unloaded gun.

This resulted in assault charges and a 2-year probation sentence for Eminem after he pled guilty. He was also ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and $5,000 compensation in addition to being banned from possessing a gun or any other weapon, according to the outlet.

Commenting on the incident, Kim, in a letter to the Detroit Free Press, according to Ranker, denied the cheating allegation, explaining that if she wanted to cheat on Eminem, she wouldn’t do it in a neighborhood bar where he knew she was.

Kim and Eminem Remarried in 2006

Following their divorce in 2001, Eminem told Rolling Stone sometime in 2002 that he would rather have a baby through his penis than get married again. However, he did just that in 2006 after he reconciled with Kim.

They tied the knot again in January of the said year in a small, private ceremony that took place at Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, Michigan, according to Dennis Dennehy, Eminem’s rep. The event was attended by family and close friends of the couple.

Just three months after their remarriage, it was reported by Rolling Stone that Eminem had filed for divorce from Kim. He filed the papers with the Macomb County clerk’s office in Michigan, as confirmed by a representative from Eminem’s label.

Their split eventually became official later that year, but the pair remained so civil all through the process, and even after that, rumors of their reconciliation began to spread in 2010. It was also reported that they were expecting a second child together. However, Eminem cleared the air through his rep. in February 2010, describing the rumor as false.

Kim Scott Had Three Children with Eminem

Kimberly and Eminem were parents to three children, including Hailey Jade, Alaina Marie Scott, and Stevie Laine Scott. Hailey is the only child between Kim and the rapper, while Alaina is the daughter of Kim’s late sister, whom she and Eminem adopted, and Stevie is a son Kim had with another man named Eric Hartter. He was also adopted by Eminem.

Hailey Jade

As we mentioned earlier, Kim got pregnant with her daughter, Hailey Jade, while she was still living with Eminem before their first marriage. She was born on December 25, 1995, in Detroit, Michigan, and is currently 28 years old.

Although it’s not known if Hailie’s birth was planned, it’s common knowledge that she has been the centerpiece of her father’s world from the day she was born. Eminem has mentioned her in several of his songs, including “Hailie’s Song” and “Mockingbird.” He has also been seen attending various events with her.

Hailie graduated with a degree in psychology from Michigan State College in 2020, and in February 2023, she announced via Instagram that she had gotten engaged to her boyfriend of over five years, Evan McClintock.

Alaina Marie Scott

Alaina Marie Scott was born on the 22nd of February 1993 in Michigan to Kim’s sister, Dawn Scott. Eminem legally adopted her sometime in the early 2000s as her mother struggled with drug use and later passed on from the same problem in 2016.

Meanwhile, even before her adoption, Alaina was part of Kim and Eminem’s family. Speaking of her in 2004, he told Rolling Stone that she had been part of his life ever since she was born. “Me and Kim pretty much had her; she’d live with us wherever we was at,” he added. He also said she was “like a daughter” to him in 2020.

Alaina is a graduate of Oakland University, where she bagged a bachelor of arts in communication with a double minor in public relations and advertising. These days, she is more of a travel blogger. She usually shares her adventures with her Instagram followers.

Lainey, as Eminem often calls Alaina in the lyrics of his songs, got engaged to her longtime boyfriend in December 2021, and on June 9, 2023, they tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony in Detroit, Michigan. The ceremony was attended by their friends and family, including Hailie, who served as a bridesmaid, and Eminem, who walked Alaina down the aisle.

Stevie Laine Scott

Kim Scott had Stevie on April 16, 2002, with her then-boyfriend, Eric Hartter, whom she dated within the period of her first divorce from Eminem. When she got back together with Eminem, he adopted Stevie legally in 2005. Stevie’s biological father reportedly died in 2019.

The 22-year-old came out as nonbinary in August 2021 and is in a long-distance relationship with Declan Jace, a TikToker.

Kim Scott appears to have a good relationship with her children, even though it looks like most of the childrearing was done by Eminem while Kim fought her personal battles, including drugs and losing her sister.

Eminem’s Ex-Wife Has Had Troubles With the Law 

Kim’s first divorce from Eminem left her broken beyond imagination. This wasn’t because she still loved Eminem but because she was faced with the challenge of managing her finances without a steady source of income. As a way of escape, she resorted to taking drugs.

She was arrested in 2001 for consuming cocaine but was not convicted. In 2003, she got on the wrong side of the law again when she was caught with cocaine and in possession of a suspended license. Consequently, she was charged with drug possession.

Additionally, she also risked jail time after getting a number of DUIs while she was married to Eminem. She was later put on probation, only to find herself in yet another mess back in 2016 for another DUI.

Kim Scott currently lives in a home located in the suburbs of Macomb, Michigan. It’s been reported that she has written children’s books since she overcame her personal demons, but there is no evidence to prove this is true. As a matter of fact, the Kim Scott, who has written the books attributed to Eminem’s ex-wife, has advanced degrees, so they are entirely two different people.

Although we do not know what Kim does for a living, reports have it that she has an estimated net worth of about £1.5 million. She’s believed to have made her money through her divorce from Eminem, as some reports claim that the rapper was mandated to pay her $50,000 annually.

On the 11th of August 2021, TMZ reported that emergency workers responded to a call from a suicidal person at Kim’s home on the 30th of July. Kim, according to the outlet, was so combative that deputies had to restrain her and so violent that her vitals could not be checked by paramedics.

Sources that spoke to TMZ said it looked like Kim had cut herself, as she had a number of deep cuts on the back of her leg, and blood was on the floor. This incident happened a few days after the death of Kim’s mom, and this was her second reported attempt at taking her own life. The first was reported in 2000.
