Eminem Ends Marriage With Kim, Divorce Settled Out Of Court

ImageEminem and his ex-wife Kimberley Mathers avoided taking their second divorce to trial by finalizing it with an out-of-court settlement during a hearing at Detroit's Macomb County Circuit Court yesterday (December 20).

Eminem (born Marshall Mathers III) filed for divorce from Kim on Wednesday (April 5), less than three months after the couple remarried in a highly documented but intimate ceremony in January.

The two were first married in 1999, but that marriage ended in October 2001 with a legal battle over custody of their daughter Hailey. They would later reconcile in late 2004 and Eminem went public with their love in December 2005.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the hearing was presided over by Chief Judge Antonio P. Viviano, who raved about the couple's behavior. "These people were a pleasure," Viviano told the Free Press. "They conducted themselves with dignity and respect."

The couple will now share custody of their daughter. They also reached an undisclosed agreement which mentioned money and property issues.
