Drug Charges for Kim Mathers Guarini Busted in Texas

Eminem's ex could face five years in prison

July 1, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Kimberly Mathers, the ex-wife of rapper Eminem, pleaded innocent in a Michigan courtroom today to cocaine possession charges stemming from a June 10th arrest.

Mathers was arrested on Interstate 94 near St. Clair Shores, Michigan, and charged with unsafe driving, as well as driving with a suspended license. At the time of the arrest, police recovered two small plastic bags containing a "white powdery substance" from Mathers' Cadillac. The substance was analyzed at the Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory in Sterling Heights, and confirmed to be cocaine.

Mathers was arrested and charged with cocaine possession in 2001, but was not convicted. If convicted of the new charge, Mathers could face up to five years in prison. She is due in court for a preliminary examination on September 9th.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
