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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
