Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, has had a tumultuous life. He grew up in the rough part of Detroit where drugs, alcohol, and violence became the perfect inspiration of his famous rap songs. Eminem has depicted the bad boy persona with poetic and misogynist lyrics often aimed at the mother of his only biological child.
His relationship with his two-time wife Kim Scott was just as toxic as the drug filled world the two lived in. Nonetheless, the birth of their daughter Hailie on December 25, 1995 has been the rapper's biggest inspiration, highlighting a softer, gentler side of the man who wrote songs depicting the killing of his ex-wife. But now Hailie is all grown-up and turning out to be a social media darling.
When Hailie was born Eminem was only 23 years old, working as a dishwasher at Gilbert’s Lodge restaurant, making $5.50 an hour.
