Kim Mathers Faces Drug Rap

Eminem's wife arraigned on cocaine possession charges

By |

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.
