Rapper Eminem has remarried his ex-wife a month after he announced they were getting back together.

“Marshall and Kim Mathers were married in a small private ceremony at Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, Michigan,” said Dennis Dennehy, a spokesman for Eminem’s label, Interscope Records.

News helicopters hovered overhead and paparazzi congregated outside as the Grammy-winning rapper born Marshall Bruce Mathers III and his high school sweetheart arrived by limousine on Saturday and were whisked inside the 110-room mansion built for car baron John Dodge’s widow 80 years ago.

“Family and close friends were in attendance, including members of D12, 50 Cent, Obie Trice and members of G-Unit,” Dennehy said.

“D12’s Proof (whose real name is Deshaun Holton) was best man.”

Dinner was lobster tails and filet mignon, and New York DJ Lord Sear provided the music for the reception, Dennehy said.

The first marriage of Eminem, 33, and Kim Mathers, 30, ended after two years in October 2001 in an ugly legal fight that included a custody battle over their young daughter.

Kim Mathers applied for a marriage licence last week, and Detroit television station WXYZ showed an invitation to ”join them as they exchange vows and the celebration of their new life together”.

The couple are planning a honeymoon later this year, Dennehy said.

Both grew up in suburbs along Eight Mile Road, Detroit’s northern border.

After attaining hip-hop superstardom, he lived in Sterling Heights and Clinton Township and now lives in a mansion in Rochester Hills, 20 miles north of Detroit.
