The real Slim Shady’s daughter may have finally stood up.
Hailie Jade Scott Mathers graduated from Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Michigan, with honors on June 8, according to the school district website.
A student in the Chippewa Valley School District’s 2014 yearbook named Hailie Scott was listed in the CVHS highest honors, graduating summa cum laude, meaning a grade point average of 3.9 or higher.
The commencement announcement lists Scott’s parents as “Marshall and Kimberly Mathers,” which is Eminem’s real name and the name of his ex-wife.
Scott listed her parents as the most influential during her lifetime in her yearbook. “They have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have,” she wrote.
Hailie, who was the subject of Eminem’s 2002 “Hailie’s Song,” said she plans to attend Michigan State University and study psychology or possibly become an entrepreneur. Her yearbook entry said she was part of the National Honor Society, Art Club, Key Club, Volleyball, and Student Council. Scott also graduated with her high school’s Academic Excellence Award and Department of Psychology Award.
In her senior photo included in the commencement announcement, Scott wears a coral and white button-down shirt, with long blonde hair and a radiant smile.
Last October, Scott was reportedly named the homecoming queen of Chippewa Valley High along with friend Tyler Knepp. Eminem and Kimberly Scott were reportedly in attendance.
“[Eminem] opened the door and looked out like - ‘That’s my daughter!’ He just looked like a proud father,” a source told local newspaper Macomb Daily. “Hailie came out with her mother Kim when she was introduced with all the other kids, but her father watched from inside the school because he didn’t want to cause a scene -- he wanted Hailie to have her own moment.”
Scott was seen arm-in-arm with her date wearing a crown on the school’s football field in a photo which circulated on local TV in the Detroit area.
Scott’s homecoming win was never confirmed by Eminem’s publicist, but the story was widely picked up by the media.
There has been much media speculation over the years about Hailie, who has largely remained out of the spotlight throughout Eminem's fame. In 2012, Buzzfeed reported that a Twitter photo from user @Angry_Blonde was the real Hailie Mathers, but Eminem’s rep later denied the report. A similar photo made the rounds on the Internet in 2013, showing a 17-year-old Hailie posing with a friend.
