Anyone would have hardly imagined the foul-mouthed rapper Eminem being so devoted towards his family. The rapper holds a special place in his heart for a girl named Amanda aka Alaina Marie Mathers. Her name is often linked with Eminem. But who is she??
Alaina is the adopted daughter of Eminem. Biologically she is the daughter of Dawn Scott-Eminem’s then-wife Kim’s twin sister.
Alaina Marie Mathers’ Bio
Alaina Marie Mathers was born originally as Amanda Marie Scott on May 3, 1993. She was born in the United States of America. Alaina even has a twin brother Parker Scott and sister Whitney Scott. The world knows Alaina as the daughter of Marshall Bruce Mathers III Aka Eminem. However, the fact is that Alaina is the adopted daughter of Eminem. Eminem and then his wife Kim legally adopted Alaina in the mid-2000s as her mother was unable to take care of her. Alaina’s biological mother is Dawn Scott, the twin sister of Kimberly. As per reports, Eminem adopted Alaina due to Dawn’s drug addiction and frequent run-ins with the law. Eminem didn’t want her childhood to suffer as her mother did.
Alaina’s Upbringing and Education
The rap guru Eminem tried his best to get Dawn out of her drug addiction and mental problem. But, his efforts all went into vain as Dawn was so exposed to drugs that she couldn’t think beyond the drugs. In order to save Alaina from miserable life that she was passing through due to her mother, Eminem took a big decision. He took her into his custody and adopted her with laws.
Eminem raised Alaina as his own daughter with her only biological daughter Hailie Jade. Hailie too welcomed her as her own sister in the family. The two sisters are seen enjoying each other’s company. Not only Alaina, but Eminem has also adopted Whitney Scott. Whitney Scott is the daughter of his ex-wife with her partner Eric Hatter. Alaina, Hailie, and Whitney have got along well with each other.
Eminem has even mentioned his daughters in some of his albums including ‘Mockingbird’, ‘Crazy in Love’ and ‘Going through Changes’. He loves Alaina and Whitney as much as he loves Hailie- his only biological daughter. Eminem even changed her name to Alaina from Amanda after adopting her legally, so that she can let go of the tragedies of her past life.
As per some reports, she is currently pursuing a degree in public relation at the University of Oakland. She hasn’t shown any interest in making her career in the entertainment world unlike his father.
Unfortunately, Dawn Scott died in January 2016 due to a Heroin overdose. She was found dead in her house in Warren, Michigan. Upon her demise, her twin sister Kimberly wrote some words about her saying;
“I kept a light lit for hoping she’d find her way back to me. I miss her and love her more than anything I could ever say. Wish she was here so I could hug her and tell her I love her. Half of me is gone and I will never feel whole again. She made me laugh and kept me on my toes. She was the best sister and friend in the world and I will miss her until we are together again.”
Her Relationship with Eminem
In reality, Alaina is the niece of Eminem and calls him “Uncle” even after the adoption. Even in the song Mockingbird, he has mentioned ‘Uncle’s Crazy’ noting to Alaina. Nonetheless, she has often told in various talk shows that she regards him as the father figure.
Eminem loves Alaina along with his two daughters Hailie and Whitney. Eminem has been known as an ardent family guy in the media. And a rumor spreading around $375000 necklaces that he bought for his daughters highlights his love and devotion towards his family.
Eminem has thrown light on his personal life through his songs, however, while in public he desists talking about it. The niece has definitely inherited this characteristic from her uncle AKA father-figure Eminem. She is successful in keeping her personal life under the bridge where no paparazzi can fall. Being a celebrity daughter, she even does not have an account in the social media.
However, her fans have created an account by her name on Instagram. Other than this, no social media accounts of her are found. Unlike other celebrity kids, Alaina’s love life is also hidden from media. So, we can’t exactly tell whether she is single, dating or has dated before.
Alaina has shown no interest in making her career in the showbiz industry. She even doesn’t have a regular job. But all thanks to Eminem for her lavishing lifestyle. Her income mainly comes from her father-figure uncle Eminem’s $190 million fortune and yet to start making her own money.
