Eminem with his wife Kim Credit:WENN EMINEM'S DIVORCE FINALISED FOR SECOND TIME LATEST: Rapper EMINEM and KIMBERLY MATHERS were divorced once for the second time after reaching a settlement during a hearing at Macomb County Circuit Court in Michigan yesterday (19DEC06). The former couple agreed to share custody of their daughter, HAILIE JADE, who turns 11 years old on Christmas Day (25DEC06). According to the Detroit Free Press, it was not clear whether Kim was granted the financial support and attorney fees she'd been seeking from the STAN star. According to Chief Judge ANTONIO P VIVIANO, the couple "conducted themselves with dignity and respect". Eminem, real name MARSHALL MATHERS, 34, and Kim, 31, were married on 14 January (06) for the second time. Less than three months later, he filed for divorce. Their first marriage lasted from 1999 until 2001. The couple also adopted Kim's niece, ALAINA, 12. Kim also has a daughter, WHITNEY, from a previous relationship. (SS/WNWCPL/SC)
