Eminem's teenage child, Stevie, appears to have called out their father for not revealing that they were adopted.
Stevie, who came out as non-binary not long ago, recounted a conversation with the forty-eight-year-old rapper about being adopted, featuring repeated denials that they were adopted before they learned that their biological father had died last year.
Stevie is the biological child of Eminem's ex-wife Kim Scott and the late tattoo artist Eric Hartter, who she was known to be with for a period of time, after separating from Eminem, but died in 2020.
Stevie lip-synced along to captions that seemed to recount a real-life incident in which someone had informed him that he was adopted.
"He's not your real dad," said the unnamed person. "You're adopted."
"You're my real dad, right? Am I adopted?" they asked.
"I am your real dad," the father replied.
Stevie had been sent an article of their "biological dad's death," which they showed to their grandmother.
"I'm sorry they wouldn't tell you about him," Stevie remembered their grandmother saying to them.
"That must be so confusing for a little girl," they concluded the video, lip-syncing the line from the Adventure Time Song Remember Me.

And not long after posting the video about their adoption, Stevie exclaimed they were genderfluid.
In a video posted on the social media site, Stevie showed their journey to being open about being genderfluid, a term used for people who believe their connection to any gender can change over time.
Stevie also came out as bisexual in 2017...
Their biological father, Eric Hartter, died in 2020 of a suspected drug overdose, after a history of substance abuse.
Stevie was born in 2001, but adopted in 2005 by Eminem, after reconnecting with his ex-wife Kim.
