The teenager made the announcement in a TikTok video last week and asked fans to “call me Stevie (they / she / he)”.

Announcement: Eminem’s 19-year-old was released as non-binary and asked fans to “call me Stevie”
In a video posted to the social media site, Stevie shows their journey to the non-binary, an umbrella term for people whose gender identity doesn’t fit “male” or “female.”
Audio of the teenager crying for joy is played at the start of the video before a montage of photos are shown documenting their transformation over the years.
The video begins with snapshots of Eminem’s child known as Whitney with “her / her pronouns” captioned before moving to photos alongside the “they / her” pronouns in 19 seconds.
Cutting their blonde hair short and sporting a nose piercing, Stevie then poignantly reveals their name alongside the caption “all pronouns”.

Stevie wrote, “Watch me become more comfortable with myself” and “grow and change forever”, and used the hashtags “#genderfluid #bi and #nonbinary” in several posts.
The post was appreciated by their sister Hailie Jade, 25, who is Eminem’s biological daughter with Kim.
According to The Sun, Stevie’s name was referenced in their grandmother Kathleen Sluck’s obituary last month.
It read: “Kathleen was an exceptional mother to her two daughters; Kim and Aurore; and was delighted to become the grandmother of her grandchildren; Alaina, Adam, Hailie, Stevie, PJ and Parker. ‘

Stevie became bisexual in 2017, and at the time, their Instagram bio asked to be referred by the pronouns she / they.
The teenager said in a now deleted post: “Happy National Day Out! ” I’m bisexual???? I would like to say that you are perfect as you are and that love is love! ?????????? Be yourself!’
Stevie’s biological father is Eric Hartter, a tattoo artist, who died of an alleged drug overdose in 2019, after a history of drug addiction and run-ins with the law.
Kim had Stevie six months after her divorce from the rapper in 2001. Eminem was already Hailie’s father.

Eminem adopted Stevie in 2005, having reconciled with his ex-wife Kim and previously explained how he wanted to provide a stable environment for his child.
Hitmaker Slim Shady also has an adopted daughter, Alaina, 28, whose mother is Kim’s late twin sister, Dawn.
Dawn died of a drug overdose in 2016.
The musician shielded his children from the limelight, but shared a rare glimpse of being a father in a 2004 Rolling Stones interview, where he also spoke about Kim’s history with drug addiction.
“You can never let a child think it’s their fault for what’s going on,” he said.

“You just gotta let her know, ‘Mum has a problem, she’s sick, and it’s not because she doesn’t love you. She loves you, but she’s sick right now, and until she’s better, you have daddy. And I am here ”.
Kim was hospitalized following a suicide attempt on July 30, TMZ reports.
It has been claimed that Kim was taken to hospital for a medical and psychological assessment, but is now recovering at home.
The rapper’s ex-wife was mourning her mother’s death and wrote a heart-wrenching tribute saying she wished she had died in her place – four days before she “attempts suicide.”

Her mother Kathy Sluck died on July 23 at the age of 65 and her funeral was in Michigan four days six days later. We don’t know how she died.
Kim and Eminem married in 1999, only to proceed with an unpleasant divorce two years later during their famous stormy romance.
They remarried in January 2006, but separated again in April. Their relationship and Eminem’s rise to world fame inspired his hit film, 8 Mile.
Eminem and Kim’s volatile relationship is one of the folklore of rap music – the controversial rapper has often taken verbal punches on his lover during his recording career – rapping about his death, drug use and his infidelity.
