Eric Hartter, the man who fathered a child with Eminem’s ex-wife Kim Scott, is reportedly a wanted man and could face life in prison.

According to Macomb County Court records, Hartter was expected for sentencing on April 17, but the 40-year-old failed to appear. Consequently, a warrant for his arrest was signed by a Macomb County Circuit Court judge on Tuesday (April 23) and mailed out on Friday (April 26).

Court documents explain Hartter was arrested last December when he and two accomplices allegedly stole roughly $200 worth of Red Bull from a CVS pharmacy.



While in jail, he was arrested again (the second time in 24 hours) for felony contraband for possessing Fentanyl and methamphetamine. He pleaded guilty on March 13 and was faced with a sentence of nine months to four years. But the state objected and as a fourth-time habitual offender, he’s potentially looking at life.

When Kim — the subject of many of Slim Shady’s classics — was dealing with her own drug and mental health issues, Em took care of Hailie, his daughter with Kim. He also took in Whitney, Kim’s daughter with Hartter. Em eventually legally adopted her. He also adopted the daughter of Kim’s twin sister Dawn Scott who died of drug overdose in 2016.

Hartter’s criminal record stretches back to at least 1994. He’s been in trouble with the law consistently ever since.
