Kim Mathers is opening up about a truly tragic time in her life.

Eminem's ex-wife, Kim Mathers is opening up about a suicide attempt she made last year.

Mathers was involved in an alleged drunk driving incident last October after crashing her car in a ditch.

She flipped the Cadillac Escalade, breaking her wrist and toes in the crash—she also suffered a concussion and bruises.

The police files relating to the incident were sealed by authorities—leading to speculation she was being afforded “special treatment."

However, during an interview this morning, Mathers explained the real reason—you can listen to the audio below.

The 41-year-old told Mojo in the Morning, the files were sealed because they contained medical information relating to her suicide attempt.

After speculation continued to grow, Mathers made the brave decision to have the documents unsealed, and to go public.

Kim talked candidly about her struggles:

I have been clean for 10 years. There are things that go on in people's lives and people think just because we have money that it makes us happy.
Yeah, I can pay bills, yeah, I can get the kids whatever they ask for and it's great to see them happy.
But you lose friends, you lose family.
You have no one to trust to even speak to about personal business. And it's hard.

She went on to share that Eminem has been there for her throughout:

He's been real supportive. We're really close friends.
We're just trying to raise our kids together and make it as normal for them as possible.

As Popdust previously reported, Eminem and Kim first married in 1999 and then divorced in 2001.

The couple remarried in 2006, but divorced again later that year.

They have three children together—Eminem's biological daughter, Hailie, and two adopted children, Whitney, from a previous relationship of Kim's and Alaina, Kim's twin sister's daughter.

Mathers is due in court May 26 to face legal charges stemming from the accident.

Her attorney, Michael Smith has requested the case be dismissed as Kim wasn't in her right mind when she gave consent to blood tests being taken.

However, the prosecution asserts that she wasn't incapacitated and insists “consent was freely given."
