MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) The ex-wife of rapper Eminem was sentenced Wednesday to at least four months in jail for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program without permission:
Macomb County Circuit Judge Edward Servitto sentenced Kim Mathers to a year in jail, but she only will have to serve 140 days if she completes a drug treatment program in jail and then attends another program in Hazel Park after being released, said Russ Marlan, spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections.
Mathers twice has dropped out of a court-ordered drug treatment program. She served some jail time earlier this year after dropping out the first time.
Police arrested Mathers in an Ann Arbor hotel room on June 15 after a caller reported she was staying there. A warrant for Mathers had been issued in April.
Mathers was placed on 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 2003 traffic stop in St. Clair Shores.
Mathers and Eminem, whose legal name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, have a daughter, Hailie Jade Mathers.
