Whitney’s father was named Eric. Aside from that, he was a famous tattoo artist. His talent as a tattoo artist was well-known in the art world all over the United States. But it was Eric’s side work that brought his career to a halt. After that, Eric was accused of being a drug dealer.

He used to run the drug cartel that funded his day-to-day life while working as a tattoo artist. He was arrested for drug possession when the legal department searched his house.

In addition, on December 27, 2018, he was caught stealing a $200 Red Bull can from CVS.

Personal Life: Relationship

Hartter was one of the few people who knew him since he had a child with Kim, Eminem’s ex-wife. Kim was allegedly in a relationship with a man after fleeing Eminem in 2001. Both lovebirds began dating in 2001, and their relationship was much too close. Their few goals went largely unnoticed, but they had a decent time before Eric got himself into trouble. 

They welcomed a beautiful baby daughter in the world named Whitney Scott Mathers in the year 2002. Eric, surprisingly, never had the opportunity to meet his daughter due to legal problems. Kim and Eric split up after almost a year of being together.

Kim later returned to Eminem and married him in 2006. Another unexpected turn in Kim’s life was the divorce of multi-millionaire rapper Eminem. Their marriage lasted three months after they married in 2006, but it was short-lived. Eric was not only not a good man, but Eric Hartter was also not a good father.
