Alaina Marie Mathers is rapping legend Eminem’s niece. She is the daughter of Dawn Scott. Dawn was the twin sister of Kim Scott, ex-wife of Eminem. Unfortunately, Dawn died of a drug overdose, and Alaina was adopted by Eminem and Kim. Alaina’s birth name was “Amanda,” but it was changed to “Alaina” after Eminem adopted her, to hint at the start of a new life. Kim and Eminem had a daughter of their own, Hailie. They divorced after an on-and-off relationship, but meanwhile, Kim gave birth to Whitney. Whitney was also adopted by Eminem later. Thus, Alaina is part of a large family that consists of two sisters and her adoptive father. In spite of considering Eminem a father figure, Alaina still refers to him as her “uncle.” Alaina and Hailie have both been mentioned in many of Eminem’s songs, the most prominent being ‘Mockingbird,’ which released in 2004. Alaina is now a public relations graduate from the ‘University of Oakland’ and has no intention to follow in Eminem’s footsteps. She is extremely secretive and is reportedly not present on social media. Her fans have, however, created several accounts in her name on both ‘Twitter’ and ‘Instagram.’
From Amanda to Alaina: The Twisted Tales of Her Family and Origins
Alaina Marie Mathers was born Amanda Marie Scott, on May 3, 1993, in Michigan, United States. She is the biological daughter of Dawn Scott. No information about Amanda’s biological father has been found yet. Dawn was the twin sister of Kimberly “Kim” Anne Scott, who was married to rapper Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known as Eminem.
Dawn died of a drug overdose on January 19, 2016, in Warren, Michigan. Eminem and Kim had by then adopted Amanda and had also changed her name to “Alaina.” Alaina is thus Eminem’s niece and grew up calling him “uncle.”
Eminem’s relationship with Alaina’s mother and aunt goes back to when they were teenagers. It is believed, Kim (Alaina’s aunt) and Dawn (Alaina’s mother) ran away from home at 13 and then went to live with Eminem’s family in a trailer. Casmier and Kathleen Sluck were Dawn and Kim’s biological parents. Apparently, Dawn and Kim’s stepfather was alcoholic and abusive, and this made them run away.
Eminem’s mother, Deborah Marshall, took care of Kim and Dawn as her own daughters. While they stayed there, Kim and Eminem had an affair, which was not liked by Deborah.
Apart from Alaina Marie Mathers, Dawn had two other children: Adam (born mentally and physically challenged due to Dawn’s drug addiction) and Patrick (Alaina’s twin brother). Some sources mention another daughter, Amy, though this has not been verified. Dawn was a heroin addict and was even jailed many times.
Eminem and Kim had a daughter of their own, Hailie Jade. Eminem also adopted Whitney Laine Scott, Kim’s daughter with her Missouri-based tattoo artist partner, Eric Hatter. Whitney was born after Kim and Eminem separated.
In fact, it is believed Eminem was charged with domestic violence when he attacked Kim after finding out she had cheated on him. Soon after they separated, Whitney was born. Though Eminem and Kim reconciled later, their reunion was brief and they split soon after. Eminem had adopted Whitney when Kim was undergoing rehab for drug addiction. Kim had a son, too, named Patrick, but it is believed Eminem was not the father of the child.
Little-Known Facts about Alaina: Where is She Now?
Alaina is known to be a secretive young lady and does not reveal much about her relationships. However, she was seen with an unknown guy of late.
It is believed she joined the ‘University of Oakland’ in 2016 and later graduated with public relations. She previously attended ‘Seneca Middle School,’ a private school in Michigan.
Eminem once reportedly spent $375,000 on each of his three daughters, for getting them matching necklaces.
Hailie, Whitney, and Alaina are quite close. Eminem has also mentioned both Hailie and Alaina in several of his works, such as ‘Mockingbird,’ ‘Going through Changes,’ and ‘Crazy in Love.’ The 2004 song ‘Mockingbird’ has a line mentioning “Uncle’s Crazy,” referring to what Alaina would say. Alaina is often referred to as “Lainie” (or “Laney”) in Eminem’s songs. The lyrics of ‘Mockingbird’ reflect a direct conversation with Hailie and Alaina (both of them children back then), explaining Kim’s issues with the law and his continuous travel. It states: “And you and Lainie were too young to understand it / Papa was a rolling stone, Momma developed a habit.”
Surprisingly, in spite of being a star kid, Alaina is reportedly not present on any social-media platform. Nevertheless, it seems, her fans have created an account for her on ‘Instagram.’ It has more than 4 thousand followers. Her sister Hailie, however, is a budding ‘Instagram’ star who documents her life regularly on social media. There is an unverified ‘Twitter’ account in the name of “Alaina Marie Mathers.” Its bio states she is “Not Alaina Marie Scott Mathers.” The account has just 97 followers.
Alaina is fond of tattoos and has several of them on her body, including one that reads “Strength” on her back. She has another tattoo on her arm, that reads: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.” She also loves dogs.
It is believed Alaina does not live with her adoptive parents any longer. However, there are contradictory reports regarding this. It is believed she does not work yet and is primarily dependent on Eminem’s fortune. It is also known that she has no interest in being a rapper or singer like her father.
