Police and emergency workers are said to have responded to a call of a suicidal person at 46-year-old Kim’s Michigan home, with Kim restrained by deputies due to being so ‘combative and violent’ that medics were unable to assess her.
Kim and Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers III, 48, share biological daughter Hailie Jade, 25. Eminem also adopted Kim’s daughter Whitney, 18, from a previous relationship, and Kim’s late twin sister Dawn’s daughter Alaina, 27.
The website reports when help arrived, Kim was cut, with ‘several small lacerations on the back of her leg.’

It was claimed Kim was taken to hospital to undergo a medical and psychological evaluation, but is now at home recovering.
Kim and Eminem married in 1999, only to proceed with a nasty divorce two years later during their famously stormy romance.
They remarried in January 2006 but had broken up again by April. Their relationship and Eminem’s rise to global fame inspired his hit movie, 8 Mile.
Eminem and Kim’s volatile relationship is one of rap music folklore.

In 1989, when she was 13 and running away from home, Kim and sister Dawn met a then 15-year-old Eminem and the sisters promptly moved into his mom’s trailer park with him as his foster sisters.
Six years later, Hailie, who, along with her mother, is the subject of many of the singer’s greatest hits – was born.
The controversial rapper has frequently taken verbal shots at his on-off lover during his recording career – rapping about killing her, her drug use and infidelity.
Kim has previously spoken of how she and the Stan hitmaker have remained ‘best friends’, saying in 2015 ‘He’s been real supportive,’ she says. ‘We’re really close. We’re just trying to raise our kids together and make it as normal for them as possible.’
In 2016, Kim admitted that her single-car crash on an empty road near her home in October the previous year was in fact an attempt to end her own life.
‘It was intentional,’ Kim told Detroit’s Channel 995 radio show Mojo in the Morning.
‘I never expected to make it out alive,’ she said, adding that she had ‘been clean for 10 years.’
An emotional Kim added people think ‘just because we have money, that it makes us happy.’
‘Yeah, I can pay bills. Yeah, I can get my kids whatever they ask for and it’s great to see them happy. But you lose friends, you lose family, you have no one you can trust you can speak to,’ she said.
Witnesses saw Kim drive her black Escalade into a ditch, where it smashed into a pole and flipped upside down with her trapped inside.
‘I sat at the end of a road where I knew that no one else but myself would get hurt.
‘Yes I drank, yes I took pills and I hit the gas and aimed for a pole.’
Just months later in January 2016, Kim’s twin sister Dawn Scott was found dead in the Motor City Trailer Park after a heroin overdose. She was said to be estranged from Kim at the time of her death.
