Rapper Eminem, ex-wife remarry


Rapper Eminem and his former wife remarried on Saturday, five years after an ugly divorce ruptured their turbulent relationship.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, and Kimberly Mathers exchanged vows in a small and tightly guarded ceremony at Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester Hills, near Detroit.

Journalists and fans crowded the entrance to the grounds around the hall — a popular wedding site on the Oakland University campus — as guests began arriving in the afternoon.

Little information was available from inside but Eminem’s publicist, Dennis Dennehy, confirmed to Reuters that the wedding had taken place.

Among other guests, rapper 50 Cent’s G-Unit hip-hop group arrived in an entourage of four sport utility vehicles.

Eminem, 33, arrived in a black limousine, sporting a red baseball hat.

The hip-hop superstar, whose 2000 hit “Kim” is a graphic rap fantasy about his wife’s death, told a Detroit radio station last month the couple had reconciled and would probably remarry.

The Mathers first married in 1999 and their divorce, which prompted a custody battle over their 10-year-old daughter, was finalized in 2001.

Last year, Eminem was treated for addiction to a sleep medication and had to cancel his European tour. His greatest hits collection, “Curtain Call,” was released in December.

Eminem has denied he plans to retire but suggested he could take a break from recording and performing.

“I’m at a point in my life right now where I feel like I don’t know where my career is going right now,” he told Detroit radio station WKQI-FM last month in the only interview he granted to promote the album.
