Eminem's Daughter Hailie Mathers, 18, Finishes School Top Of The Class


Eminem's teenage daughter Hailie Mathers has finished top of the class at her school.

The proud dad, who has previously spoken proudly of his 18-year-old daughter in tracks Mockingbird and Hailie's Song, has now seen her graduate high school with the highest honours.

Hailie paid tribute to the rapper - real name Marshall Mathers - and her mother Kim on the Chippewa Valley High School website, describing them as her most important influences.

She wrote: "My mother and father are because they have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have."

Hailie achieved the prestigious Summa Cum Laude status which is bestowed upon those who achieve a 3.9 or above Grade Point Average at the school in Clinton Township, Michigan.

She has maintained her grades while juggling numerous extracurricular activities, including National Honor Society, Art Club, Key Club, volleyball, and student council.

Hailie has also been recognised with the Academic Excellence Award and Department of Psychology Award.

She will pursue her higher education at Michigan State University, studying 'psychology or entrepreneurship.'

Eminem watched his daughter's outdoor ceremony from inside one of the school's buildings because he 'didn't want to make a scene'.

Speaking to the Macomb Daily News one parent said: "He opened the door and looked out like 'that's my daughter'.

"He just looked like a proud father."

Eminem married Kim in 1999 but divorced three years later before remarrying in 2006.

They divorced again just three months after and in 2010 were reported to have reunited for a third time but both denied the claims.

Eminem is heading to London this summer for two sell-out gigs at Wembley Stadium. He was originally set to perform at Hyde Park before organisers decided his 'offensive' lyrics didn't suit the event.

He said: "I heard that I wasn't going to be approved to play in Hyde Park and it made me even more excited to play in London this summer.

"The easiest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't do it. Thanks to the Royal Parks for making it all possible."
