Eminem Divorces Wife... Again
December 21, 2006 at 5:35 AM (PT)
EMINEM and his estranged wife have quietly finalized terms of their second divorce, less than a year after they remarried and five years after an ugly first divorce before the same Michigan judge.
A spokesman for EMINEM, whose real name is MARSHALL MATHERS III, said on WEDNESDAY the rapper's divorce had been finalized in a DETROIT-area court. The couple, who had remarried in JANUARY, agreed to an undisclosed settlement and joint custody of their 10-year-old daughter, HAILIE JADE SCOTT, according to published reports.
The couple's first divorce, finalized in 2001, prompted both a custody battle over the child and EMINEM's hit "Kim," a graphic rap fantasy about his wife's death. "I can confirm the divorce was finalized," said DENNIS DENNEHY, a spokesman for EMINEM with INTERSCOPE RECORDS.
