The globally renowned rapper, known for hits like “Lose Yourself” and “Love The Way You Lie,” is celebrated for his music’s satirical nature and his ability to tackle personal and heartfelt subjects in his lyrics.
Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, has been open about his relationships with his ex-wife and children in his songs.
Eminem has three children: Haile, 27; Alaina, 30 (adopted from Kim’s sister); and Stevie, 21.
Stevie, previously known as Whitney Scott, was born in April 2002 to Kim Scott and Eric Hartter. After Eminem and Kim reconciled in 2005, the rapper adopted Stevie.
In 2017, Stevie came out as bisexual, and more recently, they revealed their non-binary identity in a TikTok post that garnered nearly 240,000 views. The video featured photos of Stevie as “Whitney” with the pronouns “she/her” and transitioned to images of themselves as “Stevie,” expressing openness to using “all pronouns.”
The supportive comments poured in, with many expressing admiration for Stevie’s courage and self-acceptance. One comment read, “Glad to see you are feeling more comfortable with yourself! Love yourself! You’re awesome.” Another person wrote, “It takes so much courage to do that. You’re an amazing person.” The outpouring of support continued, with one viewer saying, “Congrats on your journey to finding yourself,” and another adding, “We support you and we are so proud of you! You are wonderful Stevie!”
When asked about the choice of the name “Stevie,” Stevie replied, “I spent a long time trying to pick a name I felt comfortable with, and the first name I felt comfortable with is Stevie.”
Stevie often shares moments from their long-distance relationship with TikToker Declan Jace on social media. They have also discussed their adoption experience, posting a lip-sync video that alludes to a conversation in which someone informed them of their adoption. Initially in denial, Stevie eventually approached their adoptive father to confirm their status. The father figure reassured them, saying, “I am your real dad.” Stevie also mentioned being sent an article about their biological father’s death, which they showed to their grandmother. Eric Hartter passed away in 2019 from an alleged cocaine and fentanyl overdose. According to Stevie, their grandmother expressed regret about not sharing this information earlier, saying, “I’m sorry they wouldn’t tell you about him.”
As Stevie embraces their non-binary identity and shares their journey on social media, they continue to receive support and love from their followers. Their openness about their experiences serves as an inspiration for others going through similar journeys of self-discovery and acceptance.
