Following December reconciliation, Marshall and Kim Mathers to divorce

March 2, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Eminem's wife, Kim Mathers, filed for a divorce on March 1st in Macomb County Circuit Court in Michigan. Last August, following a tumultuous summer that began with Eminem's arrest for assault and weapons possession in June and Kim Mathers' suicide attempt in July, Eminem filed for divorce from his wife of almost two years. In December the couple agreed to call off divorce proceedings and attempted to reconcile for the sake of their five-year-old daughter, Hailie.

Kim Mathers is seeking joint physical and legal custody of their daughter and is asking that all the couple's assets be frozen until divorce settlements are arranged. Meanwhile Eminem is back in court on April 10th for sentencing on a concealed weapon charge stemming from the June 4th incident outside a Warren, Michigan nightclub.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
