The Inside Story of Whitney & Her Family
Whitney Scott Mathers’ adoptive father, Eminem, went through a troubled personal life that was seldom stable. He came from a broken family and his personal life is also marked with long history of substance abuse and physical violence. The rapper met Kimberly Anne “Kim” Scott for the first time in high school, while he was rapping LL Cool J’s ‘I’m Bad,’ standing shirtless on a table. Kim ran away from home with her twin sister, Dawn. When Eminem was 15, the twin sisters started living with the rapper and his mother, Deborah Rae “Debbie” (née Nelson). In 1989, Eminem started an on-and-off relationship with Kim. Their only daughter together and Whitney’s half-sibling and eldest sister, Hailie Jade Mathers, was born on December 25, 1995. Eminem and Kim first married in 1999.
Kim is said to have cheated on Eminem with other men, and the marriage eventually fell apart in 2001. After her first divorce, Kim had a brief romantic association with a professional tattoo artist Eric Hartter. Kim became pregnant through Eric and gave birth to Whitney on April 16, 2002, in St. Joseph, Missouri, when Eric was wanted in connection with drug charges. He has been on the run for many years due to his unlawful activities. Kim, too, had her issues with drug addiction and was not in a position to raise Whitney. The baby girl was eventually adopted by Eminem in 2005, and since then Whitney has come to be known as Whitney Scott Mathers. While adopting her, Eminem mentioned “I am in Love with that girl. She is so sweet and funny.” Eminem and Kim gave it another try together and remarried in January 2006, however, this time, too, the marriage did not work and they filed for divorce in early April that year. Kim’s twin sister, Dawn, was also struggling with drug problem, so Eminem took the custody of her daughter, Alaina, in 2002. Dawn later died of an apparent heroin overdose in January 2016.
Whitney has not yet met her biological father. She once mentioned in a rare interview that the rapper was the best father she could ever have. Eminem makes it a point to spend time with his daughters, taking time off from his busy schedule, as he does not want his daughters to grow up the way he did. He also tries to keep Whitney’s life private, away from any unnecessary controversies and rumours.
She attended Eminem’s show at the ‘Governors Ball Music Festival’ at Randall’s Island Park, New York, US, in June 2018 along with her two sisters. The three were then seen stepping out hand in hand and exploring the city.
There is no information on Whitney’s relationship and dating status; she once mentioned that she was a bisexual. She added that although it is not easy to divulge on the subject online as she is watched by so many people. She is an avid animal lover and shares pictures posing with reptiles such as snakes. She is a photography and travel enthusiast and mentions Paris as her dream holiday destination.
