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.
