Eminem’s on-again, off-again relationship with his ex-wife Kim may be on-again, according to contactmusic.com. Kim’s mother said that the couple, which has been married twice and have a 17-year-old daughter Hailie together, is closer than ever.
”We see him all the time,” Kim’s mother, Kathleen Sluck, said in an interview with The Sun on Sunday newspaper, as per contactmusic.com. “I think they might get back together. They get on better than ever.”
Eminem has discussed his relationship with both Kim and Hailie throughout his recording career. On his debut major label album, 1999’s The Slim Shady LP, the song “97’ Bonnie & Clyde” featured Eminem rapping about transporting the body of Kim to a lake while an infant Hailie joined him on the journey. Eminem’s next album, 2000’s The Marshall Mathers LP, included the song “Kim,” a prequel to “97’ Bonnie & Clyde” that documented an enraged Eminem killing Kim after catching her cheating on him.
Hailie is featured on “My Dad’s Gone Crazy,” a song from Eminem’s 2002 album, The Eminem Show.
Kim also has a daughter named Whitney from another relationship, which the rapper has adopted, as per contactmusic.com.
Whitney’s grandmother, Marie Hartter, said that also said that she thinks Eminem and Kim will reunite.
”They’ve been in love since they were 14 or 15 and that’s not going to stop any time soon,” Hartter said, according to contactmusic.com. “They will probably grow old together. As much as he says he hates her in his music, he loves her that much, too. They’re an explosive couple. It’s like throwing gas on a fire. I’ve always felt she was his one true love, and she has always felt the same way about him.”
