Superstar rapper Eminem's ex-wife Kimberly Mathers has been jailed after telling her probation officer she still uses cocaine.

Kim, who was given two years probation last month (21JAN04) after pleading guilty to possession of the drug, is being held without bail and faces five years in prison for the violation.

The 28-year-old is banned from drinking alcohol or non-prescription drugs and undergoes regular drug tests as part of her probation conditions.

She was arrested in June last year (03) after police discovered cocaine in her car.

Eminem and Kim divorced in 2001 and have an eight-year-old daughter, HAILIE.
