Eminem’s child came out as non-binary and has changed their name.

The ‘Without Me’ rapper is one of the most famous musicians in the world and is known for his chart-topping hits such as ‘Lose Yourself’, ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and ‘My Name Is’.

While his music can be satirical and poke fun at society, Eminem – whose real name is Marshall Mathers – is also known for his heartfelt and personal lyrics, where he would rap about subjects such as his relationships with his ex-wife and children.

Eminem has three children, Haile, 27, Alaina, 30, and Stevie, 21.

He had Haile with his ex-wife Kim Scott and adopted Alaina from Kim’s sister Dawn.

Stevie was born Whitney Scott in April 2002 and their biological father is Eric Hartter – whom Kim dated while she and Eminem had split up.

But once the couple got back together in 2005, the ‘Not Afraid’ rapper adopted Stevie.

Stevie uses their social media platform to document their long-distance relationship with TikToker Declan Jace.

They also supposedly recalled on the platform the moment they found out they were adopted.

In the clip, Stevie can be seen lip-syncing along to captions that suggest a real-life incident in which someone had informed them that they were adopted.

“He’s not your real dad,” said the unnamed person. “You’re adopted.”

They initially deny it, before approaching their adopted father – hinting that the rapper has falsely claimed to be their biological father.

“You’re my real dad, right? am I adopted?’ they ask.

‘I am your real dad,’ The father figure supposedly replied: “I am your real dad.”

Stevie then claims that they were ‘sent an article of my biological dad’s death,’ which they showed to their grandmother.

Hartter died in 2019 from an alleged cocaine and fentanyl overdose.

They then reportedly recount their grandmother saying: “I’m sorry they wouldn’t tell you about him.”

But now, Stevie has taken to social media to talk about their gender identity…
