Eminem to Ex-Wife -- Shut the F**k Up!

3/23/2007 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eminem is going to court to make his ex-wife shut her trap.

The rapper has filed a motion attempting to prevent Kim Mathers, whom he's married -- and divorced -- twice, from making "derogatory, disparaging, inflammatory, and otherwise negative comments" about him in interviews. He claims that his wife's trash-talking is harming their 11-year-old daughter Hallie, and he will appear in court to discuss the motion on Monday, reports the Detroit News.

Kim Mathers has given a slew of interviews to TV and radio outlets in the last two months, and has slammed her ex-husband in all of them. She's said, amongst other things, that she vomits in her mouth whenever she hears his name, that Slim Shady's not terribly well endowed, that he's a bad father, and that he drove her to attempt suicide.

In the motion to suppress Kim's speech, Eminem says that she must be muzzled to "protect the child from further harm," and to prevent "any further behavior likely to expose the minor child to humiliation and hostility." Lawyers for both sides did not comment.

Such an oxy moron. How about the gays and other artists that he blast in music. Children has heard his words about woman and he thinks it's okay when it's his children which is selfish. He is getting a taste of his own medicine and it is bitter.

Come on people! Would you have bought his CD and listened to his music if he was singing about how lovely his wife was? We are just as guilty as he is, because we listened to them. Besides, who cares what size it is, if she really loved him, it wouldnt matter! And Hailey has been through enough, let it be for her sake at least!

I am NOT a fan of his by any count at all but she is working my last nerve...although it could very well be that he is and/or is not any and all of what she claims SHE married him not ONCE but TWICE! Did she not know him well enough the first time around? This is one more 15 minutes of fame grabbing bullshit and no matter what he is or isn't, this time HE'S RIGHT! Shut the f--k up and think of your daughter! If indeed her father is all or any of the things she claims, that child will find out soon enough and by then be able to make up her own mind! Parents that verbally abuse one another are forcing a child to see things "their" way and whereby stone walling them into a position of choosing between the two people they love most in the world! Hey Kim, how small could he be....NOT ONCE BUT TWICE....like I said I am not a fan of his but girl I have my serious doubts about YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a gay person myself.....I don't think he puts GAY people down at all.....he makes it slear that that isn't the way that he rolls, but he really doesn't have issues with gay people- he sang on stage with ELTON JOHN.....

The song he wrote about his mother- if you listen to it, is his interrpretation of how she was when he was growing up....by, sharing that...he's not just "putting her down"....but, he's explaining how he is who he is.....the life he has led, has not been a silver spoon type of life...he's grown up in the GHETTO part of Detroit, in trailer parks.....

And, he dissed people like Britney Spears.....PEOPLE DO THAT ON TMZ EVERY SINGLE DAY......

He's brought himself in for help when he was having issues with Ambien, he's admitted to having fault with Kim.......but, he's also grown up a lot over the years......and his daughter, if you listen to ANYTHING he has ever said about her, himself....even Kim.....HIS DAUGHTER IS CLEARLY HIS NUMBER ONE PRIORITY......

We all have dirt, but we don't need this kind of dirt flying around, not when kids are at that impressionable age......way back when, she wasn't listening to the radio....the tv....her freinds weren't talking about it......where is Kims' concern for her daughter? She's a selfish drug addict, ex con, white trash whore.....

And for those of you, that have never listened to his music, go to a lyrics site and read some of the words......try and steap away from the whoa is me aspect, and realize he's painting a MENTAL picture thru words......and he is graphic, he is RAW....but, unlike a lot of artists.....HE IS REAL......

Bull to #17....I didn't need him trashing his wife, mother of his child, him beating up a likeness of her on stage all over the world, pulling a gun on her, threatening to kill her...etc....etc....etc. He could have continued to write songs bashing the rest of the world. Present day rappers have a history of severly dissing their girlfriends, mothers of their children, wives etc...etc...etc. NO RESPECT. The bad part is that some of you do buy the songs, support the artists, and endorse what they do. I hear Em on the radio, or awards shows....I don't buy the albums, and others like him who have no respect for women. I do agree, some women show no respect for themselves or for other women. Why'd she marry him twice?...I'll never know....But she appears to be over him now!! You go Girl!!!!

em needs to take his own advice and not trash talk his wife as well, maybe the court order can be directed towards both parties - for little haylie's benefit.

Eminem is worried about the welfare of his daughter?? How about when she starts listening to that music of his?? It is so bad that many stores have to put out a PG version of his cd's. How sad that so many young people listen to his music.

He has got to be kidding. If that goes through then every album that's he's made that has a song on it that trashes her needs to be taking off the shelves. I hope the judge laughs his ass off when he throws it out.
