If you are a fan of the rapper Eminem, then the name Hailie must not be a strange thing for you. He has introduced Hailie in his number of albums including Mocking bird and Castle. She is the only biological daughter Marshall has with his then-wife, Kimberly Anne Scott.
Hailie Jade Scott Mathers Bio
Hailie Jade was born in Detroit, Michigan on 25th December 1995 to slim shady and his ex-wife Kimberly Anne Scott. She is the only biological daughter of the rap guru Eminem. During her birth, Eminem was facing the struggle days. He worked in a restaurant to support his family and to make sure his daughter doesn’t face any difficulty. However, as she was growing Eminem’s career took a peak and he became one of the best rappers.
Unlike many other celebrity kids, she wasn’t homeschooled. Haile attended Chippewa Valley High School in Michigan. She was interested in sports during her childhood. In school, she played volleyball and was a member of the National Honor Society. After graduating from high school, she went to attend Michigan State University. She bagged a degree in psychology and graduated near the top of the class as she was on the Dean list.
Currently, she lives in her four-bedroomed houses in Detroit near her family house. She often visits her mother Kim who resides nearby with her children Whitney and Patrick Scott.
In an interview with Daily Mail in 2017, when asked what she has decided next for her career, Hailie replied;
“I’m not sure yet, it’s kind of up in the air, still’.
Unlike her famous rapper dad, Hailie has no interest in becoming a musician. She revealed that she really wants to be an “influencer” like her idol Kim Kardashian if destiny favors her. She is interested in the beauty world showcasing her makeup skills on social media.
However, she revealed that she is not yet ready to launch a career and is not sure if she will ever want to live under the fame.
On and Off Relationship of Her Parents
Hailie had a troubled childhood because of her parent’s volatile relationship. The rapper Eminem and his former wife Kim were the high school sweethearts. They first bumped into each other at their mutual friend’s party. At that moment, Eminem was standing half-naked on the top of the table singing ‘I’m Bad’ by LL Cool J. Their friendship blossomed at the party and it didn’t take too long for Eminem to let Kim and her twin sister Dawn Scott stay at his mother’s house. Kim and her sister ran away from their house because of their stepfather. He used to abuse the twin sisters.
Slim Shady and Kim began dating in 1989. They dated throughout the 90s. Eventually, when Eminem was struggling, Kim got pregnant with Hailie. They welcomed their daughter on 1995 December 25. Eminem reportedly worked at the restaurants in Michigan to support his family. However, their relationship was already passing through a storm when Hailie’s birth took place.
Kim and Marshall Bruce Mathers III weren’t that perfect as a couple. Eminem turned out to be a violent husband and the differences between them created a conflicting situation. Thus, Jade grew up in a house where her parents are always fighting with each other.
The former couple married twice before finally decided to parted ways in 2006. They first tied the nuptial knots in 1999, four years after giving birth to Hailie. Things didn’t work between them and they got divorced in 2001. Again after 5 years of separation, for the sake of Hailie, the couple gave second chance to their relationship. They got remarried in January 2006. However, things turned so ugly that they couldn’t tolerate each other for more than 3 months. They legally got divorced the same year and shared the joint custody of their daughter Hailie.
Apart from this, Hailie Jade grew up with her adopted sister Alaina Mathers. Eminem and his then-wife Kim adopted Alaina since her mother Dawn wasn’t in the condition to take care of her. She also shared her childhood with sister Whitney Scott and brother Parker Scott-Kim’s children from another relationship.
Eminem’s Love For Hailie
Hailie has been a source of inspiration for the rap king Eminem. In a rare interview, he said;
‘She has been my main source of drive and motivation, especially when she was first born. I didn’t have a career yet, I didn’t have money, I didn’t have a place to live. I think that kicked me in the a*** harder knowing, ‘How am I going to raise her?’
He further added:
‘She’s always been the driving force for me to stay busy, stay focused, always been my number one reason for fear of failure. I can’t fail. I can’t have her grow up and not be able to say, “My dad succeeded.” I talk about her a lot, the truth is she is all I got in this world. If everything ended tomorrow, she’s all that I have.”
Eminem often mentions Hailie in his music compositions. It shows his immense love for daughter Hailie. Eminem wrote songs featuring Hailie since the start of his career. In 2002, Eminem launched a song called ‘Hailie’s Song’. After this, Hailie came in the eye of the public. The lyrics in the song describes the story of pure bliss that Slim Shady experienced after gaining the custody of Hailie. Later on, again in 2004, he released an album ‘Mocking Bird’ dedicating to Hailie. He has revealed his regret for not standing up with his daughter due to his problems with Kim in the sing. Likewise, he has desperately tried to ensure his and Kim’s love for her. To date, Eminem has mentioned in more than 20 songs including When I’m Gone (2005), My Dad’s Gone Crazy, Kim, My Darling, Castle, Arose, and the like.
