Rap star Eminem's pockets are about to get a little lighter — a Michigan circuit court agency has recommended he pay $142,480 per year in child support payments to his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Kimberly A. Mathers.
According to The Associated Press, the Macomb County Friend of the Court suggested that Eminem pony up $2,740 each week to support the joint custody of the couple's 5-year-old daughter, Hailie Jade, who is often mentioned on both of his multiplatinum albums. The rapper will also have to come up with a weekly $156 for health insurance and 90 percent of any childcare costs.
The pending divorce rests before Macomb County Probate Judge Antonio P. Viviano. No date for a ruling has been set, but to date, the couple has agreed that Eminem will keep their current residence, while his wife will receive $475,000 to buy a new home.
Meanwhile, Eminem will return to court on June 5 for sentencing on charges of both carrying a concealed weapon and brandishing a weapon. The rapper has pleaded no contest to the charges, which occurred during an argument with the road manager of the rival band Insane Clown Posse in 2000.
