Kim Mathers is sentenced for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment programme without permission...
EMINEM‘s ex-wife was sentenced to a year in jail yesterday (June 30) for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment programme without permission.
Kim Mathers was sentenced by Macomb County Circuit Judge Edward Servitto, but will only have to serve 140 days, after which she will be released into a drug rehabilitation program in Hazel Park.
Spokesman for the Michigan Department Of Corrections, Russ Marlan, said that if Mathers completes the treatment, her jail time will be suspended and she will be placed back on probation.
However, the rapper’s ex-wife will face another year in jail and then be placed back on probation if she does not complete the rehab.
Acccording to CNN News, Mathers was arrested by police on June 15 in an Ann Arbor hotel room after a tip-off. A warrant for her had been issued back in April.
Mathers – who has a daughter with Eminem – has now dropped out of two court-ordered drug rehabilitation programmes and served time earlier in the year for the first incident.
A 2003 traffic stop in St Clair Shores saw Mathers charged with possession of 25 grams or less of cocaine and failing to give adequate space to an emergency vehicle. She pleaded guilty and was placed on probation.
