Eminem's Child Support Hearings Continue
According to the Associated Press, a circuit court agency in Michigan has recommended hip hop star Eminem pay his wife $142,480 a year in child support. The Macomb County Friend of the Court recommendation, filed last week in the couple's pending divorce case, suggests $2,740 per week in child support to Kimberly A. Mathers.
She and her husband, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, agreed in March to joint custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Hailie Jade. The recommendation also calls for Eminem to pay $156 per week toward health insurance and assume 90 percent of any child care costs, The Macomb Daily reported Saturday.
The couple's divorce remains pending before Macomb County Probate Judge Antonio P. Viviano. The couple has already agreed that Eminem can keep their $450,000 Clinton Township home but his wife will get $475,000 to buy a new home.
Judges often follow the Friend of the Court recommendations in divorce cases, but attorneys on both sides can request modifications. No date is set for Viviano to rule on the report.
The couple was married in June 1999 and legally separated in August 2000, two months after Eminem was charged with using a gun to pistol whip a man he said he saw kissing his wife outside a nightclub. The rapper pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon and was given two years probation.
