A frantic new 911 call has offered more details into what might have been a suicide attempt from Kim Scott at her home in Detroit, Michigan in late July. The ex-wife of rapper Eminem had been been found “bleeding excessively” on her bathroom floor with an “unidentified object” on July 30, according to a police report previously obtained by HollywoodLife. Now, new 911 audio obtained by The Sun, which could be accessed here, suggests that Kim, 46, was also surrounded by pills.
An unidentified female could be heard telling the 911 dispatcher that Kim allegedly “had just tried killing herself” and that she excessively pleaded to the female to “don’t call the police.” In the audio released by the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office to The Sun, the caller insisted Kim “took a bunch of pills” and harmed herself. Kim was eventually taken to the hospital following the 911 call. HollywoodLife has reached out to Eminem’s rep for comment, as well as confirmation from Macomb County Sheriff’s Office that this call is about Kim Scott.
Per the initial police report, one of Kim’s friends contacted the authorities after they received an “out of character” text message that prompted concern. Upon arrive, the police noted Kim had “difficulty speaking” and “fluctuated in various levels of consciousness.” HL previously reached out to Eminem’s rep for comment, but has not yet heard back. The two married in 1999 but divorced two years later. While they reconciled and remarried in 2006, the duo divorced three months later.
Kim and Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers III, share children Hailie Jade, 25, Whitney, 19, and Alaina Marie, 28, together. Kim has been vocal about her mental health troubles and past suicide ideations before, revealing that her ex-husband has been supportive of her recovery. A year after she was involved in a DUI car accident in 2015, Kim called into a radio show and revealed the accident was a suicide attempt.
“I sat at the end of a road where I knew that no one else but myself would get hurt,” she said, according to Extra. “Yes, I drank, I took pills, I hit the gas and aimed for a pole.” Kim added that she had been suffering from depression and has been getting help. She then added of her ex-husband, “He has been real supportive. We are really close friends. We are just trying to raise our kids together and make it as normal for them as possible.”
