Another bad rap for Eminem’s bad-girl ex.
Kim Mathers found herself back behind bars for a second time in two months after failing to complete court-mandated rehab, prosecutors in Mt. Clemens, Michigan, have confirmed.
The hip-hopster’s former missus had transferred March 1 from jail into a drug-treatment facility, where she was supposed to remain for the next three months. But, according to assistant prosecutor Don Gillain, the 28-year-old Mathers was booted from the substance-abuse program earlier this week after she allegedly failed to comply with the rules.
“The sentence was a 90-day jail sentence and as she didn’t successfully complete [rehab], she goes back to jail to finish the sentence,” said Gillain, who declined to give a reason as to why Mathers flunked the program. “She picks up where she left off.”
Mathers was back in Macomb County Jail on Tuesday.
Her attorney, Michael Sinutko, could not be reached for comment Thursday.
The erstwhile Mrs. Slim Shady was initially sentenced to two years’ probation after pleading guilty to a drug charge and a moving violation on Jan. 21.
That plea deal stemmed from her arrest last June for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle and driving with a suspended license. A subsequent search of her Cadillac Escalade turned up cocaine, leading to a possession charge.
(She also faced separate charges of maintaining a “drug den” after getting caught throwing a cocaine- and Ecstasy-fueled party in a hotel room in suburban Detroit. Those charges were dropped when she copped to the other counts.)
She would have been all right if she continued to behave herself, but then she tested positive for cocaine during a court-mandated drug test. That led to Macomb County Circuit Judge Ed Sorvito sending her back to jail.
At a mid-February hearing, the D.A. requested a combo jail sentence and drug treatment program for the bleach-bottle blonde and the judge agreed, with the caveat that Mathers complete the stint in rehab.
Now Mathers will remain locked up until her sentence is up on May 12.
Before becoming known as Eminem target in such raps as “Kim,” Mathers was the rapper’s high-school sweetheart. The two had a daughter together, Hailie Jade Mathers, before divorcing in 2001.
