At Michigan High School Hailie Jade become Homecoming Queen
At Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Michigan on Friday, the real homecoming queen stood up.
And it was Hailie Scott!
Yes, the 17-year old daughter of Eminem - who was name-dropped multiple times in many of the rapper's early hits - received this honor from her classmates while her dad watched from afar, holed up inside a school building in order to avoid making a scene.
The newspaper said the famous rapper stayed out of the public view Friday night to allow his daughter a little time in the spotlight.
Hailie, a senior, was voted homecoming queen by the student body and faculty, while Tyler Knepp was named homecoming king.
"Hailie came out with her mother Kim [Scott] when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn't want to cause a scene -- he wanted Hailie to have her own moment," one parent who asked not to be identified told the newspaper.
She was immortalized in a song when she was just a baby, and now Eminem's daughter, Hailie, is famous at her high school.
The rapper's daughter was crowned homecoming queen of Chippewa Valley High School on Friday during a football game in Clinton Township, Mich., the Macomb Daily reports.
Students and faculty chose the 17-year-old – who's described by those who know her as a "smart, athletic and caring young woman" – as their queen after a vote.
The teen's dad, Eminem, 40, (aka Marshall Mathers III), watched the coronation from a classroom at the school so as not to take the attention away from his daughter.
"Hailie came out with her mother Kim [Scott] when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn't want to cause a scene – he wanted Hailie to have her own moment," one parent, who asked not to be identified, tells the paper.
"He opened the door and looked out like – 'That's my daughter!' He just looked like a proud father," the parent added.
