Eminem Discusses Divorce From Kim

Eminem released a statement yesterday (April 6) concerning his recent divorce filing and comments that his wife made on a Detroit radio station.

Eminem (born Marshall Mathers III) filed for divorce from Kimberly Mathers on Wednesday (April 5) less than three months after the couple remarried in a highly documented but intimate ceremony in January.

The two were first married in 1999, but that marriage ended in October 2001 with a legal battle over custody of their daughter Hailey. They would later reconcile in late 2004 and Eminem went public with their love in December 2005.

Early Thursday morning (April 6) , Kim called WKQI's "Mojo in the Morning" show and revealed that the divorce was result of Eminem's addiction to sleep medication for which he was hospitalized for last summer.

"He's having problems with, you know, his problem that he had," Kim explained during the radio interview. "I was hoping we could get counseling and work it out, you know?

"Right after he came home from his rehab, we started to have a few problems, and I thought it was going to be in our best interest to delay the wedding," she added. "But he really pushed it and I thought it was really going to be something that worked this time."

According to Kim, she and Em had not been on speaking terms for six weeks and was caught unaware when she was served with the divorce papers.

"I don't really necessarily want to get divorced," continued Kim. "I was hoping he was going to come home and say, `I got us a counselor, let's go.' But you know it didn't work out that way. I got an attorney at the door instead."

Later on in the day, Eminem would respond via a written statement on his Sirius Satellite Radio channel Shade 45 saying, "The details surrounding both my marriage and subsequent filing for divorce are private and I hoped to keep them that way for the sake of my family. However, a few of Kim's statements in a radio interview this morning need to be addressed. First, her allegations regarding my status post-rehab are both untrue and unfortunate. Second, she was aware that I was filing for divorce. We both tried to give our marriage another chance and quickly realized that a wedding doesn't fix the underlying problems."

Eminem is currently in the studio contributing to Obie Trice's sophomore album titled Second Round's on Me which is slated for release in May.

As SOHH previously reported, Eminem will be among numerous rappers who will be featured on an upcoming documentary titled Rap Sheet: Hip-Hop and the Cops, which is set to expose hip-hop cops.
