Kimberly Mathers, the wife of rapper Eminem, attempted suicide on Friday night after attending a concert by her husband at the Palace Of Auburn Hills as part of the "Up In Smoke" tour.
A spokesperson for Interscope Records told MTV News that the 25-year-old Mathers slashed her wrists at the couple's home in Sterling Heights, Michigan on Friday night.
Emergency and Fire Department personnel were called to the scene around 11:30 p.m., and Mathers, who was conscious when help arrived, was treated for her injuries at the scene, according to a press release issued by the Sterling Heights Police Department.
Kimberly Mathers was then transported to nearby Mt. Clemens General Hospital for evaluation and subsequently released on Saturday.
Eminem was not at home at the time of the incident, although label reps for the platinum-selling rapper have issued a statement on behalf of Eminem, who played shows over the weekend in Rosemont, Illinois and Milwaukee.
"Eminem is obviously concerned about his wife's well-being," the statement read. "As far as anything else, it's a private matter, which they'll be addressing privately."
In early June, the 27-year-old rapper and his wife got into an argument outside a bar in Warren, Michigan after Eminem apparently saw Kimberly kissing another man, after which the rapper allegedly attacked him (see "UPDATE: Eminem Arrested In Michigan Bar Brawl").
Eminem was to have been in court on Tuesday, July 11 for a preliminary hearing related to felony assault and weapons charges leveled against the rapper after that altercation. However, the judge in the case accepted a request for adjournment submitted by the rapper's attorney on Monday, pushing the next court date in the case back to August 31.
Shortly after the incident, Kimberly wrote an open letter to "The Detroit Free Press" that seemed to both defend her husband as well as
take him to task for having "jumped to conclusions" (see "Eminem's Wife Pens Explanatory 'Letter To Editor'").
On Friday, Eminem made an appearance in the 44th District Court in Auburn Hills for a preliminary hearing on weapons possession charges stemming from his fight with an employee of the Insane Clown Posse at a car audio store in Royal Oak, Michigan (see "Eminem Goes To Court, Preps New Video").
