Rapper Eminem, Wife Reach Deal on Public Criticism of Each Other

Eminem and his ex-wife Kim Mathers have agreed not to publicly criticize each other. The estranged couple say the March 26 decision arises from their desire not to hurt their 11-year-old daughter, Hailie.

Mathers, who has twice married and divorced the 34-year-old rap star, has frequently criticized her ex-husband's lack of compassion and fidelity.

In return, Eminem has often assailed Kim in his lyrics.

The couple wed in 1999, divorced in 2001, remarried in January 2006, and separated three months later. Their second divorce was finalized in December.
