US rapper, Eminem’s daughter, Hailie Jade, whom he paid tribute to in tracks like Mockingbird and Hailie’s song, is all grown up now.
The 18 year old who recently graduated from high school with the highest honors gave a graduation speech at Chippewa Valley High School giving tribute to his dad, Eminem (real name Marshall Mathers) and her mother Kim, describing them as her most important influences.
“My mother and father are because they have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have,” she said.
Hailie achieved the prestigious Summa Cum Laude status which is bestowed on those who achieve a 3.9 or above Grade Point Average at the school in Clinton Township, Michigan.
According to Macomb Daily News, a parent who asked not to be identified said: “Hailie came out with her mother Kim (Scott) when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn’t want to cause a scene. He wanted Hailie to have her own moment.”
