Kim Mathers, twice divorced from Eminem, admits that his treatment of her led to a suicide attempt.
After going to one of her husband's concerts, Mathers was shocked to see Eminem's public display of hatred toward her and the audience's positive response to it. "He was singing a song that was about me and he had a blow-up doll up on stage that looked like me and he was physically beating it and kicking it," says Kim, "Seeing the crowd response and everybody cheering, singing the words and laughing ... I knew that it was about me, and that night I went home and I tried to commit suicide."
Despite the couple's very public fighting, and even after the alleged suicide attempt, Kim agreed to marry Eminem a second time in January 2006 -- six years after they first divorced. Mathers says Marshall left 41 days later. Her explanation for his misogynistic attitude: Eminem's mother. Is it always the mother-in-law's fault?
Kim's full interview airs tomorrow on "The Dr. Keith Ablow" show.
