Speaking from the home she is currently sharing with Kim, just outside Detroit, Eminem’s former mother-in-law Kathy Sluck told RadarOnline.com that her daughter sees the rapper “all the time.” The generous star is also building his first love a brand new mansion just five miles from his house.
Kathy revealed of the former lovers: “They get along better than ever. He’s building her a new house on 22 mile right over there.”
She added of daughter Kim: “She has been clean all these years, she just takes care of her family. She’s doing very well.”
Kathy also revealed the pair may get back together soon, explaining: “I think they might, they get on better than ever.” (A rep for the rapper told us, “Marshall & Kim remain friends and continue to share in the parenting of their family.”)
The new house currently being built for Kim is on Mile Road in Macomb, Michigan, a rural suburb of Detroit surrounded by fields and farms. It is just a five-minute drive from the house she is living in now with her mother. Although still in the early stages of being built, the house already looks to be a large, sprawling mansion.
Marie Hartter, the grandmother of Eminem’s adopted daughter Whitney, also shared her opinion on Kim and Eminem’s fiery relationship. She said: “As far as I know they’re not together, but I think your first love they’re always going to have that tumultuous back and forth thing going –always. They’ve been in love since they were 14 or 15 and that’s not going to stop anytime soon.”
Although they have two failed marriages behind them, she said: “They will probably grow old together one way or another, as much as he says he hates her in his music, he loves her that much too, I feel. I think it’s kind of like throwing gas on the fire. I’ve always felt that that was each of their one true love. I think they met very young, they were together a lot of years, I don’t think she’s ever been with anyone for as long as she’s been with him, whether it’s off and on.”
Asked if she thinks they are a dangerous combination, Marie said: “Oh man in a lot of ways, I think in a lot of ways. I mean how do you marry someone and then divorce them four months later? I think leading up to it I think they both knew it might be a mistake, but I’m guessing. I think at some point they could get back together, anything is possible when you’ve been in love with someone for 25 years.”
Neal Alpert, the agent and former fiancé of Eminem’s mother Debbie Mathers, said of Kim and Eminem’s fiery relationship: “In my personal opinion they seem to have the type of relationship that will keep them coming back and forth to each other. I would say first loves always have a place in our hearts, I’m sure there’s still feeling there, you can’t just turn it off.”
In addition to possibly reconciling with Kim, it seems Eminem may also be ready to publicly forgive his mother, who he made violent references to in his hit Cleaning Out My Closet.
In the song Headlights from his latest album, Eminem has changed his tone, rapping: “You’re still beautiful to me because you’re my mum. I love you, Debbie Mathers.”
Neal revealed of Eminem’s mother: “She said that things have been on the mend for a while with him. I hope it’s true because she has been one tormented soul for a long time. From what I’m able to gather it sounds really like she wants to bury the hatchet. She’s always been guarded with the press because she hopes Marshall will come back to her.”
He added of the rapper: “He’s definitely in a good place at the moment. I only hope that for Debbie’s sake that all this talk of rekindling is sincere.”
Defending Debbie, Neal claimed she’s been misrepresented in the past.
He explained: “She always did the best she could as a mother to raise him. She once worked at a limousine company and would push his CDs on customers. She is a mother that tried to do good by her son.”
