Out of all the beef that Eminem has been embroiled in over the years, his feud with his baby mama, Kim Scott, tops the chart as the most brutal. The two met in high school and later welcomed their daughter, Hailey.

They got married in 1999 but split just two years later. However, their love story didn’t end there. The two later remarried in 2006 but their relationship came to an end for good that same year.

Eminem spent a wholesome evening with U.K. actress Joy McAvoy.

Although Eminem never explicitly confirmed that he was entangled with Avengers actor Joy McAvoy, she spilled all the tea about their brief encounter in an interview with the Daily Record in an article titled “I Was a Lady With Slim Shady” in 2001.

At the time, Joy described herself as a “huge fan” of the rapper. According to her, they didn’t consummate their situationship, but they did kiss, cuddle, and have a heart-to-heart.

"We talked about relationships and he told me how difficult it was for him to have a serious relationship because of his fame,” she said.

Joy added, "We spent the entire night in his hotel.”

Before Mariah Carey got married to Nick Cannon, she had a fling with Eminem. The two dated for six months in 2001. All hell broke loose after they broke up and their years-long celebrity feud began.

Not only did Eminem shade her in several interviews, but he also dissed her on a few of her songs.

But Mariah didn’t take the disrespect lying down.

The video for her 2009 single, “Obsessed,” featured an Eminem doppleganger that was giving serious Joe Goldberg vibes. He later fired back at Mariah with his song, “The Warning.”

Since then, Eminem hasn’t made any of his romantic relationships public — and he should probably keep it that way!
