Marshall Mathers, known as Eminem to millions, resided in a 14,500 square feet mansion in Rochester Hills, a wealthy suburb of Detroit. The 5.69 acre estate includes a mansion with 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, a tennis court, groomed lake and launch dock, pool, 5 car garage and 21 rooms. Eminem bought the residence in 2000 for $4.5 million and sold it in 2017 for $1.9 million at a loss. The house was listed on the market in 2020 for $3.75 million and was sold in 2022 for $2.35 million.
The house was originally built in 1986 and renovated in 2003, when it was sold to Eminem. This home has remained Eminem’s primary residence throughout his legal and marital trouble with Kim Scott, his twice-married and twice-divorced ex-wife. The residence, in a wealthy and exclusive area north of his hometown Detroit, serves as the ideal location for the private family man. Eminem had custody of his half-brother Nathan (Nate) Mathers until he turned 18, and Eminem took his responsibility as provider for Nate seriously. The two are now currently working on several joint ventures.
Eminem’s daughter Hailie Jade Scott Mathers, who turned 18 in 2014, also resided at the house, and Eminem retained full custody of Hailie after he and her mother, Kim Scott, divorced. Eminem also has full custody of Scott’s daughter Whitney Laine Scott (born April 2002), despite not being her biological father. He also had custody of Amanda (now Alaina) Marie Scott, the daughter of his ex-wife’s twin sister Dawn Scott. Eminem and Kim Scott adopted Alaina when they were married, and Eminem retained custody and parental responsibility of Alaina after the divorce.
Eminem has maintained his roots to both his family and Detroit, where he was first exposed to rap music and where he got his first break in the music business. His commitment to Detroit was notable in the 2011 Super Bowl commercial for Chrysler, both promoting the Detroit-made vehicle and the town that made it. The moving commercial was one of the most talked-about of the Super Bowl, and led to a more positive image of both Eminem and the hard-hit Motor City.
