Badboy rapper Eminem is worried about ex-wife KIM MATHERS - after she twice failed to appear before an American court to answer charges of cocaine possession.

Kim - who has a daughter HAILIE with the Lose Yourself rapper - stands accused of possessing 25 grams (8.81 ounces) of cocaine on 10 June (03), driving with a suspended licence and unsafe driving near a stopped emergency vehicle.

Mathers was instructed to appear at MACOMB COUNTRY COURT, Michigan on Monday (20OCT03), and prosecutors then gave her until Tuesday morning (21OCT03) to show up.

But she again failed to attend and a bench warrant has now been issued against her.

A pal of Eminem says, "He is really devastated by what's happening to Kim. Despite their battles, she remains his first and only love."
