Early life

Kim was born in Warren, Michigan state in the United States. Her mother was Kathleen Sluck, and her stepfather was Casey Sluck. She was born on January 9, 1975 ( 46 years old ), along with her twin sister Dawn Scott. 

The sisters faced a rough childhood as their stepfather was an alcoholic who frequently abused the sisters. In a memoir of Eminem’s mother, she claims that Kim was sexually abused by her stepfather. Soon, it became unbearable to the sisters, and they ran away from home to go and live with her high school sweetheart Marshall Bruce Mathers (Eminem).

However, when we checked her FB, it seems that Kim loved her father, and she misses her. On November 2, 2019, she posted “MISSING THE LOVE OF MY LIFE” and then communicates with affection about Casey in comments with other family members.

Based on the posts she has about her father and the affection with which she writes about him, we doubt if what Eminem’s mother wrote was true and that it was perhaps exaggerated. We cannot deny he was an alcoholic; however, he was a caring father when sober. Or, he must have changed a lot.

She and her twin sister attended Lincoln High School, and no further information about their higher studies is known to the media.

During high school, Dawn got involved with an unknown man and gave birth to the child Alaina.

Kim was married to Eminem in the early days of his career. As a result, numerous songs by Eminem have mentioned her. His songs portray love initially, then marriage, children, the breakup, ditch, and finally apology, all roaming around his relation with Kim.

Her sister Dawn, whose daughter Kim had adopted, died in January 2016 at forty-one due to an apparent heroin overdose. Kim was plunged in grief when she said:

“Dawn was my sweet, beautiful sister who lost her way. I kept a light lit for her, hoping she’d find her way back to me. I miss her and love her more than anything I could ever say. I wish she were here so I could hug her and tell her I love her.”

Kim gained fame for all the wrong reasons. Kim’s biggest and only reason to be famous is her twisted love life that started from thirteen years of age and passed through three decades with on and off marriages, rap diss track, two suicide attempts, felony charges, and way too much media drama.

The latest news that rose her to fame was in November 2013, which stated that Eminem had built a house for Kim and his ex-mother-in-law. It also said that there was a good chance for the couple to be together again.

However, the rumor got falsified after Kim attempted suicide in 2015.

Personality

Kimberly, a Capricorn by birth sign, must be a determined lady. In general, such people are proud of their resourcefulness and determination. Capricorns have always been self-sufficient, even as children.

She writes Children’s books, greeting cards, puzzles, etc. She also designs license, does calligraphy, and has illustrated ‘The Terrible Time Without Tilly’ and ‘Monty Wins the Cup’ Egmont.

If we analyze all the news we have read about her, we can say that her troubled childhood has definitely had an adverse effect on her life. She hasn’t been successful as a homemaker and has trouble being in a relationship stemming from trust issues.

She likes to be independent and not beholden by relationships. It is one of the reasons that even though she was married to a rich and famous Eminem, all his money and affection couldn’t hold her together in marital obligation.

Kimberly Anne Scott Relationships

Eminem

Kim was in a loving relationship with her high school sweetheart Eminem for a very long time. They first met at a house party when Kim was only thirteen years old. Eminem was only two years older than her when he asked his mom to let her live with him.

During that period, Kim gave birth to their first child, Hailie, on December 25, 1995.

Ever since it seems he got famous our relationship went downhill. he became arrogant and cocky. Everything that he did for me or the kids he has to be praised for. You know he is so use to getting so much attention, people praising him for his work that he expects it when he comes home.

In an interview with ABC News on her first divorce with Eminem.

Kim said that she wasn’t really ready for the second marriage and that it was Eminem who pressured her into getting married. She wanted to wait to complete two years as there was a pattern that their relationship typically would work for two years, but then thereafter, it will go worse.

I saw a pattern that their relationship would go well for two years and then it would turn bad for some reason. So I asked Eminem to wait for the two years to pass and see how it goes. However, he pressured and rushed me into marriage. He asked me to pack her stuff and or choose a date for the wedding.

In an interview with ABC News on why she married him the second time.

Their relationship soon ended after four months. However, it was Eminem who ended the relationship. He moved out of the house after Kim argued with his brother for inappropriate behavior. Eminem left the house and didn’t contact her or return calls.

Shortly thereafter things went wrong yeah he left our home everywhere 25th he actually physically left the home. There was a disagreement between me and his brother about what inappropriate behavior that his brother had yes and that’s what it was and then the next morning there was a note in the bathroom that said “I’m going to the other house. I need to clear my head.” I was so confused about the whole thing it’s so baffling to me. He didn’t even come around for a month after that like didn’t come see the kids he wasn’t calling me, he didn’t return phone calls I didn’t know what the heck was going on and then his attorneys assistant comes to the door and serves me papers

It was difficult for Kim to manage between her kid and the visits to the courthouse. Kim herself was struggling with the drug abuse. She was charged in 2003 for cocaine possession, and now she was married to a man who was a felony for the same reason.

Eminem was so mad that he said he would rather have a baby through his penis than get married again in an interview with Rolling stone. But, their love for the mother of his child made him marry Kim twice.

Kim re-married Eminem in January 2006. It was after Eminem was released on bail. She had been the only support when he was in prison, which helped revive the couple’s lost love, but it also raised the same problems that had once separated the two.

Finally, the marriage did not last more than four months as Kim got a second divorce from Eminem in April 2006.

Alaina being the eldest among the children, is closer to Hailie. She was adopted by Eminem when he was still in relation to Kim. According to Eminem, he could not resist the thought of innocent, beautiful babies living a life in his childhood.

Though Kim could not take good care of her children due to her legal issues and drug abuse, Eminem was kind enough to work overtime and make the ends of the family meet, and that too, in a luxurious way.

Kimberly Anne Scott controversies

Their family is mostly out on media for controversies. Kim has always been a famous person due to Eminem, so news of every divorce and the ugly fight was on the media. However, the case of her cheating on Eminem with John Guerra, an acquaintance, had caused an immense roar in the press.

Eminem had supposedly hit him with a gun, for which he was sued. Eminem sang the ditch song in her hometown when their relationship ended. However, Kim did not take it in the right way. She cut her wrist for the first time after the concert in Detroit.

Cheating

Kimberly has cheated Eminem multiple times with other guys. In an interview with ABC News, she confessed that there were multiple reasons for it- She wanted to take revenge. Also, she was feeling lonely, and that she lacked self-esteem.

I just really needed attention from somebody. I was lonely and didnt have very good self-esteem. I am sure that had something with it too. probably everything. We both had our moments of infidelity. I can’t even count on both hands how many times he has done it. But I am not out there publicly humiliating him and putting all his faults out there for the whole world.

In an interview with ABC news

Kimberly’s suicide attempt

I went with my sister and some friends. I asked him before if she went to the show if he is going to perform that song. He said no because I know you gonna be there and I wouldn’t do that to you. And I was there in the middle section on the main floor. Sure enough, he decided to do that song and not only perform the song but use blow-up dolls as a touring act like me being choked in and just disrespectful things to the blow-up doll and then threw the doll into the crowd like for him to do that in front of thousands upon thousands of people knowing them out there and just watching everybody else seeing the words and laughing and jumping around and like approval of just I couldn’t take it I don’t know that’s complete spite I mean especially knowing that you’re gonna be sitting you know in the front row right there and I immediately left. I couldn’t gather my senses and I went upstairs to my bathroom and slit my wrist.

Their father (Eminem) you know somebody who is supposed to teach them respect and I don’t know I just don’t appreciate what is written in the songs about me I don’t appreciate them being played around our children and I’m sure it doesn’t set a good example for him especially you know letting them believe that it’s okay for a man to disrespect you like that in any way is not acceptable to me.

Kimberly Anne Scott arrested

Kim has been meeting headlines for all the wrong reasons regarding drug abuse. In 2003, Kim faced a month in jail for violating her probation, and in 2015, she crashed her car into a pole while driving under the drug influence. Later on, she named it an intentional suicide attempt.  

She was in the limelight again because of the Macomb Country suicide attempt. It was a shame for a lady who resented her sister’s death to have such an attempt on her records.

According to Kim, she was rich enough to pay her bills and fulfill every demand of her kids, but she had lost the trust of her friends and family, she had no one to talk to, and thus she was depressed and did not want to live.

Funny enough, there was also a rumor of Kim being dead. But it is far from the truth, she has been keeping a low profile since 2015, and both Kim and Eminem are peacefully living their own lives.
