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.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
