After a turbulent roller coaster relationship of marriage, separation, re-union, and divorce, Marshall Mathers III, the rapper known as Eminem and his high school sweetheart, Kimberly Mathers were once again married on Saturday in the Detroit suburb of Rochester. It was just a month ago that rapper announced in an interview on a local radio station that he and his ex-wife were back together.
Their tumultuous relationship is recorded in many of Eminem’s albums, most notably the 2000 single, “Kim,” released a year after their divorce and spouting rhymes of violent intent. Kim countered with a $10 million law suite, citing emotional distress. The couple soon after reconciled saying they hoped to work things out for the sake of their daughter, Hallie Jade. A divorce and bitter custody battled soon followed, however, in 2001. In the following years, both have sought treatment for addiction; Kim for cocaine, and Eminem just recently for sleeping pills.
With the past behind them, The Detroit News reports that the wedding was attended by 100 guests, including 50 Cent, Obie Trice, and members of D12 and G-Unit. The couple’s daughter served as her mother’s maid-of-honor and Detroit rapper, Prof, served as the Best Man. Notably absent from the wedding was the groom’s estranged mother.
Details of the nuptials were kept quiet as all guests and workers associated with the event were asked to sign confidentiality agreements. Out of town reporters as well as photographers from Star and People magazine were in attendance.
