Kim Scott, Eminem’s ex-wife, attempts suicide days after her mother’s death.
When police arrived to Kim Scott’s home on July 30, they discovered her with wounds on the back of her leg and blood on the floor.
Kim Scott, Eminem’s ex-wife, was taken to a Michigan hospital late last month after attempting suicide—a day after she had just put her mother to rest, according to The Daily Beast.
According to TMZ, Scott was upset when police arrived at her house on July 30. Paramedics were unable to check her vitals because she was so aggressive, so authorities had to hold her. The 46-year-old was discovered with blood on the floor and wounds on the back of her leg.
Scott was brought to the hospital for medical and psychiatric assessment, but is said to be recuperating at home. Scott and the rapper have biological daughter Hailie Jade.
Kathleen Sluck, Scott’s mother, died on July 23 at the age of 65, only a few days before Scott’s attempt. “also Kathleen was an excellent mother to her two daughters, Kim and Dawn, and was delighted to become a grandmother to her grandkids, Alaina, Adam, Hailie, Stevie, P.J., and Parker,” according to the statement.
“Kathleen loved spending the holidays with her family, cooking one of her many delicious handmade dinners. Kathleen will be remembered by everyone who loved her as a kind wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.”
Sluck’s funeral was held on July 29 at Lee-Ellena Funeral Home, according to the Daily Beast.
It’s unknown if Sluck died suddenly, but in recent pictures shared by family members, she was seen in a wheelchair and wearing what seems to be a hospital ID bracelet on her wrist.
Scott married Eminem, born Marshall Mathers III, her adolescent love, in 1999, after meeting the Detroit-area 15-year-old rapper when she was about 13 years old. The two split in 2001 after a lengthy and turbulent relationship. In January 2006, they reunited and wedded for a short time before divorcing permanently in April.
Scott has battled with addiction throughout the years, and has been arrested a few times for illicit drug possession. She earlier attempted suicide in 2000 after seeing Eminem play his song “Kim” about his hatred for her and beating up a blowup doll that looked like her in front of a crowd, she told Dr. Keith Ablow on his talk program in 2007.
“Seeing the crowd’s reaction and hearing everyone shout, sing the lyrics, and laugh,
it seemed like everyone was looking at me,” Scott added. “I realized it was about me, so I went home that night and attempted suicide.”
She claimed in 2015 that she purposefully drove her vehicle into a telephone pole after drinking and taking prescription drugs. She told a radio program, “I sat at the end of a road where I knew no one else except myself would be harmed.” “I didn’t think I’d survive to see the end of it. I sincerely apologized. I didn’t think I’d make it through, and I told [police] I was trying to do it on purpose.”
So yet, no one from Scott’s family has spoken out about her hospitalization or Sluck’s death. On Aug. 1, her niece Alaina, whose mother Dawn is Scott’s late sister, merely mentioned having “a hard stressful week.”
“Half of me is gone—I kept a candle burning for her, hoping she’d find her way back to me,” Scott said in a tribute to her twin,
who died at the age of 40 from a suspected heroin overdose in 2016.
