The announcement came after several media outlets reported that the 41-year-old star had rekindled his relationship with his former flame following a Radar Online interview with Mathers's mother. However, according to a spokesman for Shady Records, the two are just good friends.
“Marshall and Kim continue to maintain a great friendship and share in the parenting of their family,” the spokesman told the Free Press on Wednesday.
The Shady Records rep stressed that both Eminem and Mathers love their three daughters and are focused on raising them together as a family.
Rumors that the couple was back together spread Wednesday after the interview in which Mathers's mother Kathy Sluck said the rapper and Mathers see each other "all the time" and "get along better than ever."
“As far as I know they’re not together, but I think your first love they’re always going to have that tumultuous back and forth thing going -- always,” Sluck said. “They’ve been in love since they were 14 or 15 and that’s not going to stop anytime soon.”
