Eminem Shoots Down Rumors Of New Baby With Kim

Vibe / February 4, 2010

Eminem has responded to rumors sparked by a tabloid report that stated he had reunited and fathered a new child with his ex-wife, Kim Mathers.

Star Magazine claimed that Eminem and Kim Mathers had reunited for a third time and were expecting a child.

“Contrary to false rumors spread by unreliable tabloids, Marshall and Kim Mathers are not romantically reunited in any way, nor are they expecting a child together,” a representative for Eminem said in a statement. “They are a divorced couple who share custody of their daughter and maintain a friendly relationship.”

Eminem, born Marshall Mathers, originally married Kim in 1999.

The couple divorced in 2001, during the success of the rapper’s Marshall Mathers LP, which contained the scathing diss track “Kim,” which accused her of being unfaithful.

“I would rather have a baby through my penis than get married again,” Eminem told Rolling Stone in 2002.

In January of 2006, the couple remarried in a lavish ceremony, only to be divorced for a second time, just three months later.
