Eminem fans everywhere were feeling a lot older when his daughter, Hailie, turned 25 in December, however many had something to say when she started posting some summer pics on her Instagram…
Even if you aren’t into his music, everyone knows who Eminem is.
Born October 7th, 1972, he’s had a long and prolific career including selling over 230 million records globally and even bagging an Academy Award.
He’s been in and out of rehab and has struggled with addictions to prescription medications.
But one area in which Eminem has consistently faced controversy is in his personal life.
In fact, there have been some pretty public feuds between the pair, with many taking place in Eminem’s song lyrics.
For example he wrote ’97 Bonnie & Clyde’…
’97 Bonnie & Clyde’ and ‘Kim’ came out in 1998 and follows a storyline where Eminem and his daughter go to the lake to dispose of Kim’s dead body. He wrote both songs when the couple were going through marital problems and Kim was preventing Eminem from seeing his daughter.
Kim and Eminem share a (somewhat unusual) family together, including 3 daughters.
The pair’s eldest (pictured on the right), Alaina Marie, was the daughter of Kim’s troubled sister, Dawn, who died of a drug overdose. Kim and Eminem adopted her in 2002, and she’s now twenty-eight-years-old.
Whitney, aged eighteen, is the daughter of Kim and her brief-fling, Eric Carter. Eminem legally adopted Whitney too, and they co-parent the teen.
Hailie Jade Mathers was born in December of 1995.
He’d always been known as something of a hard, scary individual, but fatherhood certainly brought out his softer side.
In fact, two of Eminem’s most popular songs, “Mockingbird,” and “Hailie’s Song,” are inspired by the birth of his daughter, and feature heart-wrenching lyrics about his experience of fatherhood.
But Hailie herself has chosen a pretty surprising career.
Instead of following in her father’s footsteps to musical stardom or choosing a more conventional career path, Hailie has, instead, taken on an industry that’s pretty controversial – and distinctly millennial.
Yep, that’s right…
Eminem’s daughter is an Instagram influencer.
And a pretty successful one at that. She currently has an unbelievable 2 million followers on the photo-sharing platform.
And fans are feeling pretty old now she’s turned twenty-five…
One person replied to her birthday Instagram saying: “Remember when she was a little girl.”
Another added: “Do you want to feel old? @Eminem’s daughter, Hailie Scott, turned 25 yo. She looks amazing!”
Eminem has said how raising his daughter is his best achievement…
He said: “I have a niece that I have helped raise, too, that’s pretty much like a daughter to me, and she is 26, and I have a younger one that’s 17 now.
“So when I think about my accomplishments, that’s probably the thing I’m the proudest of is being able to raise kids.”
However, Hailie has been the reason for some of Eminems feuds.
Back in 2012, rapper, actor and fashion icon Machine Gun Kelly was 22, and tweeted about the then 16 year old Hailie.
He obviously had something to say…
Eminem never publicly replied to the comment however in 2018, MGK prodded the bear once more when he subtly shaded the seasoned rapper in Tech N9ne’s song ‘No Reason.’ The verse was supposedly a direct reference to Eminem’s ‘Rap God’.
“I pop cherries and pop stars, you popsicles is not hard
Popped in on the top charts out the cop car
To remind y’all you just rap, you’re not God
And I don’t care who got bars”
In 2018, Eminem released his album Kamikaze.
On it, he finally calls out MGK for the comments he made about Hailie on the track “Not Alike.”
Machine Gun Kelly then came out with a whole diss-track aimed at Eminem and his daughter
“Rap Devil” calls out Eminem for taking so long to respond to a tweet.
Two weeks later Eminem hit back with ‘Killshot’.
It left people shocked, and many were reminded what an incredible lyricist Eminem is.
Eminem stated his feelings about the feud in an interview.
“One day, you know, you go down a f***ing wormhole on YouTube or whatever,” he says. “I see ‘Machine Gun Kelly Talks About Eminem’s Daughter’ or whatever. I’m like, ‘What the f***?’ I click on it…he starts doing a press run, basically, about Hailie. I’m like, ‘What the f***? Yo, my man better chill.'”
However, the damage was done and people were sensitive about how protective he was over his daughters.
So when Hailie began posting bikini photos on her instagram, people began to issue warnings…
The photo showed Hailie in a white bikini and bucket hat…
People were hesitant to compliment the young woman, aware of Eminem’s reaction in the past.
He definitely has people nervous…
But what can you expect? He’s been through hell and back for her…
