Nothing much was known of their father but he was reportedly used to heavy drinking. Kim and her sister were raised by their mother Kathleen and stepfather. Her stepfather was an alcoholic and he allegedly abused Kim and her sister which led to their running away from home at a very young age. Kimberly was at Lincoln high school when she first saw Eminem standing shirtless on a table at a mutual friend’s party while he was rapping. They fell in love and soon she and her sister fled from their home and they finally found themselves at Eminem’s home where his mother, Debbie Mathers-Briggs accommodated both sisters.
At the time of their meeting Kimberly Anne Scott was 13 and Eminem was 15 years of age. It was at the party that Eminem performed LL Cool J’s rap song “I’m Bad” while standing on the table with his shirt off and Kangol on.
As the two started dating during the ‘90s, Eminem worked tirelessly hard on his rap career and began to get involved with rap battles at St.Clair Shores where he was working at the time.

Yes, I drank, I took pills and I aimed for a pole,” Scott said, adding, “I never expected to make it out alive. Yeah, I can pay bills. Yeah, I can get my kids whatever they ask for and it’s great to see them happy. But you lose friends, you lose family, you have no one you can trust you can speak to.”
