Eminem talks about Proof’s death and his ex-wife Kim
People Mag reports on Em’s new book with Sacha Jenkins “The Way I Am.” In which, Eminem addresses how his friend Proof’s murder in 2006:
“I have never felt so much pain in my life,” he writes in The Way I Am, which hits stores Oct. 21 and features dozens of personal photos, handwritten lyrics and sketches. “It was tough for me to even get out of bed, and I had days when I couldn’t walk, let alone write a rhyme.”
Random sidenote: I scripted an MTV/MTV2 special (with homie/producer Sherri Scorca) on D12 which focused on the effect that the death of original member Bugz had on the group. It was Eminem who actually stepped in to join the group after Bugz’ death. I wonder if that show exists online somewhere…..
Eminem’s quote about his current relationship with ex-wife Kim, after the jump…
Eminem, 36 – who has been working on a new album in his hometown of Detroit – also opens up about how he and ex-wife Kimberly Mathers are co-parenting daughter Hailie, 12, teenage niece Alaina, and 6-year-old Whitney, Kim’s daughter from a previous relationship.
“Kim and I have had our differences, sure, but things are good between us now,” says the rapper (real name Marshall B. Mathers III), adding that the two have forged a “seamless” back and forth between their homes. “She’s there holding the fort down – and she does an amazing job.”
