The US star even adopted Dawn's daughter Alaina with ex-wife.

She recently told Radar that Eminem and Kim weren’t giving her any help in her bid to beat her heroine addiction.

She said: “I have a millionaire brother-in-law and a sister with money up the ass.”

Up until her death, Dawn had been sleeping on couches and spending nights on the street.

She spoke to RadarOnline in August last year, telling the website: “One night I called my sister and told her I had nowhere to go. She said, ‘That’s not my problem. Don’t bother me,’ and hung up.”
