Eminem's child Stevie latest – Rapper’s adopted kid with Kim Scott comes out as non-binary

EMINEM'S 19-year-old child has come out as non-binary and now goes by the name Stevie Laine – as family have shown their support, The Sun can reveal.

The rapper legally adopted the teen back in 2005, after he reconciled with his ex-wife Kim Scott, Stevie's mom.

Stevie revealed their true identity in a series of Instagram and TikTok posts after cutting their hair short, showing off their quirky fashion sense for followers.

In one post, they wrote out their pronouns, telling fans: "call me Stevie (they/she/he)," which was liked by sister Hailie Jade, Eminem's biological daughter with Kim.

A TikTok video also shows their transformation over the years, with the words: "Watch me become more comfortable with myself," and "forever growing and changing."

They used the hashtags #genderfluid #bi and #nonbinary in several posts.

    WHO IS STEVIE LAINE?

    Stevie was born on April 16, 2002, in Michigan.

    Eminem legally adopted the teen back in 2005, after he reconciled with his ex-wife Kim Scott, Stevie's mom.

    Stevie's father is Kim's ex-boyfriend Eric Hartter, whom she got together with during a break from Eminem, and the superstar later adopted them.

    Their biological dad, a professional tattoo artist, had various run-ins with the law and was in and out of prison as he reportedly battled drug addiction. He died in 2020 aged 40.

    WHO IS NATE MATHERS?

    Eminem's brother Nate is 14 years younger than him and was born on February 3, 1986, as the result of a brief affair between his mother, Debbie Nelson and Fred Samara.

    The brothers were close to each other but distanced from their mother, who they have claimed was abusive and neglectful.

    At one point Nathan was placed in foster care but Eminem, now a successful star, took him in when he was 16 and gained legal custody.

    Nate, now an actor of 35, has always said he was grateful to his big brother for taking him in.

    WHO IS ALAINA MARIE SCOTT?

    Kim's twin sister Dawn battled heroin addiction throughout her teens and adult life and tragically died from an overdose in 2016 at age 41.

    Alaina also has a twin brother, Adam, who was reportedly born with mental and physical disabilities as a result of his mother's addictions and is thought to have been raised by his father.

    Eminem adopted Alaina and told Rolling Stone: "My niece has been a part of my life ever since she was born.

    "Me and Kim pretty much had her, she’d live with us wherever we was at."

    Now 28, Alaina is an influencer who promotes body positivity.

    WHO IS HALLIE JADE?

    Fans of Eminem heard Hailie’s name repeated the lyrics of over 20 songs throughout his career, including Hailie’s Song, My Dad’s Gone Crazy, Kim, 97 Bonnie & Clyde, Beautiful, and My Darling.

    Hailie was born on Christmas Day, 1995, and initially brought up in poverty, with warring parents.

    But, despite her chaotic homelife and instability, she grew up well-adjusted – graduating from Chippewa Valley High School in 2014 with highest honors.

    On Mike Tyson's Hot Boxin podcast he said: "Hailie is 23, no babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good.

    "She's made me proud for sure, she's graduated from college."

    KIM SCOTT CONTINUED

    The violent lyrics to 97 Bonnie and Clyde and Kim also saw him fantasizing about killing her, and they split after she saw him beating a blow-up doll in her image, on stage, in 2000.

    During their split, Kim got pregnant with Stevie, christened Whitney, in a brief affair with Eric Harttner, but when she reconciled with Eminem, in 2005, he filed for adoption.

    The couple divorced in 2006 and Kim has battled depression and addiction since, attempting to take her own life several times.

    This week she was rushed to hospital after her latest suicide attempt following the death of her beloved mum, Kathy Sluck.

    WHO IS KIM SCOTT?

    Born in Michigan, Kim had a troubled childhood and claimed she was abused by her alcoholic stepdad.

    After running away from home at 13, she met Eminem, then 15, and moved into his mum Debbie Nelson’s trailer.

    The pair had a rocky relationship and after the birth of their daughter Hailie Jade, in 1995, they lived in crime-stricken areas and struggled to get by, with Eminem working as a dishwasher in a hotel for £4 an hour.

    “He didn’t want his daughter to grow up like he did, living from day to day and moving from week to week,” his boss, Mike Mazur, told Salon in 2000.

    The pair wed in 1999 but both struggled with drug addiction and Eminem later admitted he was abusive to Kim.

    BIG FAMILY

    Starting life with a single mum in a trailer park in Detroit, Eminem always vowed to give his own kids a better life.

    And while Hailie Jade – his daughter with ex-wife Kim Scott – is his only biological child, the rapper ended up raising an entire brood, adopting two more family members and bringing up his own little brother Nate, 14 years his junior.

    As Kim’s sister Dawn succumbed to drug addiction, he took in her daughter Alaina, now 28, and later adopted her.

    He also adopted Kim’s second child Whitney, conceived after the couple split in 2001.

    WHAT ARE GENDERQUEER AND NON-BINARY?

    The gender binary is the idea that there are only two possible genders – male and female.

    Intersex people (hermaphrodites) and those born with extra X or Y chromosomes could also be classed as binary genders.

    Anyone who identifies as non-binary or genderqueer therefore views their gender as being beyond these confinements.

    Non-binary people may also identify as transgender which means their internal experience of gender differs from the one they were assigned at birth.

    Genderqueer has a similar meaning to non-binary but can sometimes cause offence if it is viewed as a transphobic slur.
