MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) ‘ The ex-wife of hip-hop superstar Eminem was back in prison after Macomb County authorities said she dropped out of a court-ordered drug abuse program.
Kimberley Mathers, was released from jail March 1 to attend a drug treatment program after being convicted of using cocaine while on probation.
Macomb County Circuit Judge Edward Servitto on Feb. 12 ordered she serve 30 days in the county jail and then be transferred to an inpatient substance abuse treatment program for an additional 90 days.
On Tuesday, she was back in the Macomb County Jail.
“For whatever reason, she left the program she was attending so the judge ordered her back to jail,” Capt. John Roberts, the jail commander, told The Detroit News for a Thursday story.
“For right now, it’s ordered by the judge that she complete her sentence in jail.”
Mathers, 28, was sentenced on Jan. 21 to two years’ probation after pleading guilty to charges of possessing 25 grams or less of cocaine and failing to give adequate space to an emergency vehicle. The charges stemmed from a June traffic stop in St. Clair Shores
Mathers was also barred from using alcohol or nonprescription drugs and has to undergo random drug testing for the duration of her probation.
Her sentence is up on May 12.
Mathers and Eminem, whose legal name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, have a daughter, Hailie Jade Mathers.
