While Hailie Jade is mostly known as American rap star Eminem’s daughter, she is also turning out to be a prominent fashion and beauty influencer on ‘Instagram.’ Hailie was born to Eminem and his former wife, Kim, in 1995, at a time when they were not married. Throughout her childhood, Hailie has missed her parents’ company, due to her mother’s drug issues and her father’s music tours. However, her loving dad tried making up for that by mentioning Hailie in as many as 20 of his songs, the most notable of them being ‘Hailie’s Song’ in 2002. Hailie is now popular on ‘Instagram’ and is also part of a happy family with her two sisters, Alaina and Whitney. She recently graduated in psychology and is in a relationship with Evan McClintock, whom she met as a student at ‘Michigan State University.’
Early Life & Family: The Secrets of Hailie Jade’s Extended Family
Hailie Jade Scott Mathers was born on December 25, 1995, in Detroit, Michigan, to world-renowned rap star Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known as Eminem, and Kimberly Anne Scott (Kim).
It is believed Kim and Eminem had met through a common friend and had dropped out of school at the same time. Kim and Dawn (Kim’s twin and Hailie’s aunt) ran away from home at 13 to live with Eminem’s family in a trailer. Apparently, Kim and Dawn’s stepfather’s abusive behavior had driven them away.
Eminem’s mother (Hailie’s grandmother), Deborah Marshall, took care of Kim and Dawn as her own daughters. While they stayed there, Kim and Eminem fell in love. Her parents got married in 1999, a few years after Hailie’s birth. However, they split in 2001, allegedly due to domestic violence triggered by Kim’s infidelity. They got back together in January 2006 but divorced after 3 months. Eminem won Hailie’s custody after a bitter legal battle.
Meanwhile, Eminem adopted Dawn’s daughter, Alaina (born Amanda), as Dawn was a drug addict. On January 19, 2016, Dawn died of a drug overdose.
Eminem also adopted Hailie’s half-sister, Whitney Laine Scott. Whitney was Kim’s daughter with her Missouri-based tattoo-artist partner, Eric Hatter, and was born after Kim and Eminem had separated for the first time. Kim also had a son named Patrick, but rumors suggest Eminem had not fathered the child.
A Childhood amidst Fame
It is believed, in the few months after Hailie Jade’s birth, Eminem (then a rising rap sensation), was working 60 hours per week. Due to Kim’s struggle with drug abuse (She was going through rehab after Whitney’s birth) and her father’s constant work tours, Hailie missed her parents throughout the initial years of her life. Eminem, however, tried making up for his absence by mentioning her in as many as 20 of his songs, including ‘Mockingbird,’ ‘Stan,’ and ‘When I’m Gone.’ The video of ‘Mockingbird’ had footage from their home video, featuring Hailie.
Eminem’s 1996 album ‘Infinite’ had references of the difficult times he faced while taking care of little Hailie. She also appeared Eminem’s 2005 video ‘When I’m Gone.’ However, the most talked-about song that mentioned Hailie was ‘Hailie’s Song’ from Eminem’s ‘Grammy’-winning 2002 album ‘The Eminem Show.’
