Kimberley Mathers has dropped out of a drug treatment programme...

An arrest warrant has been issued for EMINEM‘s ex-wife after she dropped out of a drug treatment programme ordered by a US court.

Kimberley Mathers did not return to a treatment facility at Macomb County, Michigan on Tuesday (April 6), officials said.

BBC news reports that a spokesperson for the state department of corrections said Ms Mathers was supposed to attend the in-patient substance abuse treatment programme after a doctor’s appointment and a Narcotics Anonymous meeting.

Authorities had contacted members of her family but they did not know where she was, said spokesman Russ Marlan.

The incident is the second time Ms Mathers has dropped out of a court-ordered drug treatment programme after being found using cocaine on probation. Last week she was ordered back to the treatment facility after leaving it without authorisation last month.

Mathers, who has a daughter – Hailie Jade Mathers – with Eminem, was divorced from the rap star in 2001.

Eminem is currently in London to promote the new D-12 single, ‘My Band’, which he produced. He is strongly rumoured to be appearing with the Detroit collective at London’s Shepherd Bush Empire tonight (April 8).
