Eminem has kept a fairly tight lid on his private life. The one girl he's talked about the most - at least in his lyrics - is Kimberly Anne "Kim" Scott, who he was married to... Twice. They met in high school, and when Kim and her twin sister Dawn ran away from home, they moved in with Eminem and his mother. The two had an on-and-off relationship starting in 1989.
Anyone who's ever listened to his lyrics has heard him trash talk his baby mama, so who in their right minds would possibly date a guy like that?! Well, it turns out quite a few women have dated him... and apparently, Slim Shady has acted kinda shady and bragged about dating girls who weren't going out with him.
20 CLAIMS HE DATED: Nicki Minaj
In 2018, both Eminem and Nicki fueled rumors that they were secretly dating. Nicki Minaj claimed that they were a couple while Eminem kept the rumor going. Their chemistry on "Roman's Revenge" was undeniable and we were kinda hoping the rappers would get together/ Turns out it was all a publicity stunt and they weren't actually together.
19 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Kesia Alvarez
Kesia claimed to have had an affair with the rapper while he was married to then-wife Kim and later went on to divulge extremely private details about the star. Some of the details she revealed sound false and could perhaps just be due to a desire to get her 15 minutes of fame.
18 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Brittany Murphy
Eminem and Brittany Murphy co-starred in the movie 8 Mile and rumors of romance followed. The late actress did hint at the two stars extending their onscreen chemistry off-screen too, but nothing was ever confirmed. Eminem stayed mum on this one too. So there are hookups with famous women that he keeps private after all. Shocking!
17 CLAIMS HE DATED: Mariah Carey
The songstress has vehemently denied claims that she dated Eminem, but a scorned Em went out of his way to prove the claims - he even played voicemails allegedly left by Mariah. The rapper said:” Yes, me and Mariah did have a relationship for about a good six, seven months, but it didn’t work. I wasn’t really into what she was into; our personalities collided. She’s a diva, and I’m a little more regular, I guess.”
16 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Gina Lynn
Gina Lynn has been rumored to have dated Eminem ever since she appeared in his “Superman” video. For those of you who are wondering who on earth this woman is - worry not, we have you covered. Gina Lynn is an actress in the adult movie industry— she is not the only adult movie actress the rapper has been rumored to have gotten cozy with either.
15 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Joy McAvoy
Actress and rapper Joy McAvoy is alleged to have admitted to spending a night with the rapper back in the 2000s, but you guessed it - Eminem never confirmed these reports. Calm down... according to Joy, nothing happened - no adult fun times occurred and the rapper was a total gentleman. Okay, we believe you... not.
14 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Samantha Mumba
The Irish singer/songwriter rose to fame in 2000 with the release of her debut single "Gotta Tell You," which reached the top five in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It's during this period that she was rumored to have dated the rapper. Though again, it stayed strictly as a rumor throughout the years with neither of the sides confirming or denying the allegations.
13 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Geri Halliwell
Fans were stunned when the duo was rumored to have been dating. Reports claimed that Eminem and ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell had been meeting up regularly for cozy lunches and dinners after meeting by the pool of the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles where they both stayed. This has got to be the weirdest couple of all time.
12 CLAIMS HE DATED: Britney Spears
Eminem is rumored to have hooked up with Britney Spears during the early portion of the 2000s. He kept the rumor going by hinting at a possible fling with the pop star. Some people don't kiss and tell and Em dropping hints of possible adult fun times with Britney is a breach of trust... assuming it's true.
11 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Tracy Mcnew
Rumors of these two secretly dating began way back in 2008, but the stars' rep said Mcnew was just part of his management team. It's quite understandable why people would assume that these two were an item... we would assume that the duo probably spent long hours together - in a professional capacity.
10 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Karrine Steffans
The former video vixen turned author has been linked to several celebs and rappers, and has appeared in more than 20 music videos. Steffans Penned three New York Times bestselling books, Confessions of a Video Vixen, The Vixen Diaries, and The Vixen Manual: How to Find, Seduce & Keep the Man You Want. Eminem had a brief encounter with Karrine Steffans in 2003.
9 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Skylar Grey
The talented singer, songwriter and the "rap god" rapper have been rumored to have dated. They have made beautiful music together and have great on-stage chemistry. With neither party commenting on the rumor, it remains pure speculation. This is one pair up we wouldn't mind though— it has us wishing they would really get together.
8 CLAIMS HE DATED: Tara Reid
Eminem says he had intimate relations with Tara “before all the disease and stuff " and did confirm their alleged relationship on a couple of occasions. He even dropped some harsh lyrics about it on "Kamikaze". The rapper has been known to express his displeasure with people through music, after all.
7 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Kendra Jade Rossi
Former adult film star and wife of Rockstar Supernova frontman Lucas Rossi, Kendra Jade is rumored to have had a brief fling with Eminem back in the day. Neither party has confirmed the rumors though, so we are guessing it was fairly brief and the duo didn't think much of it.
6 CLAIMS HE DATED: Rihanna
Who can forget the time Riri was caught in the middle of Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly’s rap beef? In his diss track, MGK claims that Eminem is too “scared to ask Rihanna for her number,” to which Eminem responded with his own track “Killshot,” in which he raps: “Rihanna just hit me on a text/Last night I left hickeys on her neck.”
5 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Marisa Cirillo
The two allegedly dated back in the day, and their relationship is chronicled in the Eminem song, “Spend Some Time,” where Eminem, 50 Cent, and other rappers discuss heartbreaking relationships. Apparently, 50 Cent was quoted as saying that “Marissa is Marshall’s one true love. They are soul mates, and are destined to be together!”
4 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Brittany Andrews
Brittany Andrews and Eminen are rumored to have had a brief relationship in the past, and it's easily believable seeing as the rapper has an affinity for adult film stars. Like his entanglement with Kendra Jade, Em has never spoken about his brief fling with the actress. For someone so private, he sure has divulged private intimate information about certain women he claims to have been with in the past.
3 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Kaya Jones
It is alleged that the former Pussycat Doll and the rapper briefly dated, though neither party confirmed or denied the allegations. When the songstress took a shot at Eminem via Twitter for some of his views, many were left wondering whether it was a case of a romance gone wrong.
2 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Marni Bright
Music studio manager Marni Bright was rumored to have been romantically linked to the rapper back in November of 2017. Neither party commented on this, though! And that's probably why the rumor is still lingering— we keep wondering "did they or didn't they?" We assume they did and if that's the case, we hope the rapper won't drop a diss track about it down the line.
1 RUMORED TO HAVE DATED HIM: Kim Bessinger
When Bessinger and Eminem starred in the movie 8 Mile together, rumors of a possible hook-up stormed the internet, but he denied ever being involved with the actress while she remained silent about the whole thing. It's a wild concept considering Brittany Murphy revealed that the two of them were dating at the time.
