Eminem and ex wife Kim Mathers put aside their differences and agreed Monday not to lambast each other in public. The estranged couple made the decision for the sake of their 11 year old daughter Haillie.
Earlier in the week, Eminem filed a motion in Detroit’ Macomb Circuit Court for a legal gag order on Kim to prevent her from making “derogatory, disparaging, inflammatory and otherwise negative comments” about him in the media.
Since her divorce, Kim Mathers is doing all she can to get on Mr. Slim Shady’s nerves. Kim has accused the rapper of being a bad father as well as a rotten lover in bed.
Kim attended the hearing and a closed-door meeting beforehand in the chambers of Friend of the Court Referee David Elias. Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, wasn’t present, but spoke by telephone in Elias’ chambers.
The two sides settled on the deal that was announced at the court hearing.
Eminem’s lawyer, Harvey Hauer, said:
We’re happy the court was able to bring this matter to a just and equitable resolution.
Mathers’ attorney Michael J. Smith said the decision was reached “for the full benefit of the child.”
Smith said Eminem and Mathers have “to attempt to promote a good relationship” and “can’t talk bad about each other to the child.”
The couple was married in 1999 for two years. They remarried in January 2006, and Eminem filed for divorce in April of that year. The couple has one daughter, Hailie, as well as custody of Haillie’s cousin, Alaina.
