Eminem's ex-wife was involved in a DUI crash that almost took her life – and she confessed that was the plan. Kim Mathers revealed her 2015 accident was actually a suicide attempt.

"I sat at the end of a road where I knew that no one else but myself would get hurt," she explained. "Yes, I drank, I took pills, and I hit the gas and aimed for the pole."

Mathers said how she "apologized immensely" following the accident.

"I never expected to make it out of that alive," she said. "I told police that I tried to do this on purpose. I'm so sorry."

Mathers explained how the court records were sealed because it was a suicide attempt, not because she was granted preferential treatment as many believed.

"There was medical information in there," she said. "It had nothing to do with the rest of the case… After I realized how much drama it was causing, I willingly unsealed the files so that everybody can know my personal business, yet again."

Although Mathers and her ex-husband have had a tumultuous relationship over the years, the rapper has been "real supportive."

"We're really close friends," she said of her ex. "We're just trying to raise our kids together and make it as normal for them as possible." 

The mother of Hailie, 20, Whitney, 14, and adopted daughter Alaina, 23, revealed she "was starting to do better" before the passing of her twin sister Dawn Scott in January 2016.

The wreck took place on October 7 when her black Escalade flipped over after driving into a ditch. According to the police report, she drank a fifth of Malibu rum. She suffered a concussion, broken wrist and broken toes.
