Eminem’s Daughter Hailie Admits It Bothered Her When People Asked Her About Her Dad

The 27-year-old opened up about the situation on her podcast.

It’s always a tad frustrating when you happen to find yourself living in the shadow of someone – let alone when that certain someone is no other than ‘Rap God’ Eminem.


The ‘Lose Yourself’ star is father to three children he shares with his ex-wife, Kim Scott: Hailie Jade Scott, Alaina Scott and Stevie Laine Scott.

While having Eminem as your dad will naturally come with a whole load of perks – it’s clear that sometimes having a celebrity parent isn’t always all its cracked up to be.

And Hailie Jade opened up about having a famous dad and admitted that it bothered her ‘to a point’ when people asked her about him.


Have a look:


The 27-year-old musician hosted a ‘Ask Me Anything’ episode of her podcast, Just a Little Shady, last year where she found herself inundated with questions about ‘The Real Slim Shady’ rapper.

“Does it bother me when I get asked about my dad?” she asked. “The best way to say this is yes and no … Honestly, it’s to a point.”

Hailie went on: “I obviously expect it. And there’s certain things I can understand why people are just genuinely curious about, as anyone would be when you’ve kind of grown up half in the spotlight.”

With that being said, however, Hailie did point out that she’s ‘a person too’, adding: “I think I have more to offer than just my dad.”


She added: “I feel like growing up, when it would happen, I would get more bothered by it because I was like, ‘Why do people care?’


“I was young and I didn’t totally understand the situation, so I was like, that’s my dad. I don’t ask you about your dad.

“And there are certain things that, yeah, that’s just weird that you want to know that, but then things that have been a little bit shared, I understand why people are like, ‘OK is this true?’

“Some stuff it’s just like, that’s weird. Let’s move on.”


Speaking of Eminem, music fans have recently been left reeling at what legendary rapper Eminem sounded like in his first ever song.

Hailie said that it bothered her 'to a point'.

A recording of ‘Eat It’ performed by the now 51-year-old when he was just 16 back in 1988 sounds miles away from the distinctive voice of the Grammy-award-winning artiste that we all know and recognise today.

Eminem then went on to change music history forever after releasing his first album, ‘Infinite’, just eight years later in 1996.
