Eminem is one of the famous rappers in the world but has always managed to keep his private life private.

With the rapper securing his place in the Rock Hall Of Fame, fans are wondering if he will be celebrating the honor with someone special.

Ever since Eminem got divorced from his ex-wife, Kim Scott back in 2006, fans have wondered if Eminem has dated anyone else.

Who is Eminem dating?

The rapper appears to be single and hasn't been publicly linked to anyone in several years.


'The Slim Shady' rapper is quite private about his love life, however, he has spoken about his experience in dating after his divorce.

In an interview, he mentioned that he has been struggling a bit and hasn’t found anyone serious enough to make it official.

He said, “It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately.”  

Eminem admits he uses Tinder to meet women. 

He stated that when he does want to date, he uses Tinder or goes to strip clubs to meet women.


In another interview in 2010, he also talked about why he avoids dating in general. He revealed that it’s just hard for him to open up to women as he has trust issues.

"I have trust issues — with women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are," he said.

He also mentioned how the past couple of years had been tough for him and he just wanted to focus on himself for the time being.

He said, "I kind of feel like I'm just now finding my footing, so I want to make sure that's secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while."


He also put light on the fact that dating for any celebrity is a challenge. He said, "I mean, I'd like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn't? It's just hard to meet new people, in my position."

Eminem was rumored to be dating Nicki Minaj back in 2018.

The two rappers have worked together previously and even collaborated on the song, ‘Roman’s Revenge’ in 2010.

As the two have known each other for a long time, fans wondered if they had been dating. It seemed the fans' wishes came true in 2018.

When a fan left a comment on Minaj’s Instagram asking whether she was dating Eminem, the 'Anaconda' rapper responded with an affirmative.


This sent all the fans into a frenzy, however, that excitement was short-lived. Sources close to the rapper later revealed that she had been joking and nothing was going on between her and Eminem.

Eminem previously dated Mariah Carey and Brittany Murphy.

While Eminem has been secretive about his love life after his divorce, there were some relationships that he spoke about.

Eminem revealed that he dated Mariah Carey for a while. However, Carey denied it ever happened. 


As a response, Eminem even released multiple songs about her, one of them being, ‘Bagpipes in Baghdad’ in 2009.

In addition, Eminem also dated the late Brittany Murphy when she starred in the film, ‘8 Mile’ with him. The two had sparked dating rumors then because of their chemistry on- and off-screen.

Murphy once also confirmed in an interview that the two did briefly date.


She said, “The rumors are true, they were true.”
