Kim Mathers Faces Drug Rap

Eminem's wife arraigned on cocaine possession charges

July 16, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Kim Mathers, the estranged wife of rapper Eminem, was arraigned today in 41-B District Court of Mount Clemens, Michigan, on one count of possession of a controlled substance. Mathers was found with less than twenty-five grams of cocaine. The charge is a four-year felony.

After pleading not guilty, Mathers was released on a $5,000 cash bond, and her next court appearance is scheduled for August 21st.

The arraignment stems from a July 8th arrest in Harrison Township, Michigan, on an outstanding bench warrant for disturbing the peace after Macomb County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a call about a possible jet ski accident.

After escorting her into the Macomb County Jail, a deputy returned to the sheriff's car and found a "white powdery substance of suspected cocaine" in the backseat, according to a statement issued by the Sheriff's Department. Mathers was released the same day after posting a $3,000 bond.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
