Eminem and ex-wife Kim Mathers have agreed to stop publicly criticising each other. The rapper - real name Marshall Mathers - and Kim attended a closed court hearing at Detroit's Macomb Circuit Court yesterday (26.03.07) and agreed to stop making "derogatory, disparaging, inflammatory and otherwise negative comments". The agreement was made following a motion filed by Eminem last month to protect their 11-year-old daughter Hailie.
Eminem's lawyer, Harvey Hauer, said: "We're happy the court was able to bring this matter to a just and equitable resolution." Kim's attorney, Michael J. Smith, said: "The decision was reached for the full benefit of the child. "They have to attempt to promote a good relationship and can't talk bad about each other to the child." Kim had publicly accused the rapper of "slacking very much" with regard to his parental responsibilities and claimed there is "nothing positive" between him and Hailie.
In February, she appeared on Detroit's Wkqi-FM's 'Mojo In The Morning' radio show where she revealed intimate details about their relationship. She said: "I can't stand him. He's an absolutely horrible person, and he gets worse every day. I vomit in my mouth whenever I'm around him or I hear his name." She also described sex with her ex-husband as "bad" saying, "He's not very well endowed." Kim added: "If you're going to have sex with Marshall, make sure you have a little blue pill (Viagra), because otherwise it does not work."
The couple first married in 1999 but divorced two years later. They remarried in January 2006 and Eminem filed for divorce in April of that year. The divorce was finalised in December. The couple also have custody of Hailie's cousin Alaina.
