Eminem’s adopted child comes out as non-binary and changes name to Stevie
Eminem’s adopted child has come out as gender fluid and non-binary and changed their name to Stevie.
The 19-year-old has been using the hashtags #nonbinary and #bi on their TikTok videos since earlier this year, and in a video shared last week, Stevie shared their new pronouns and new name.
Set to a Labrinth song from the TV show Euphoria, Stevie Laine posted a slideshow of pictures of them over the last few years, which started with the caption: ‘Watch me become more comfortable with myself.’
They captioned the first batch of photos, in which they sported longer hair, with their old name, writing ‘Whitney, she/her’, before their pronouns changed to ‘she/they’.
Stevie then changed their name, before announcing they used ‘all pronouns’.
In the video caption, they wrote: ‘Forever growing and changing <3’ and added the hashtags #genderfluid and #bi.
Stevie’s friends and followers praised them for their journey, and the teenager explained how they landed on their new name.
When asked how they chose ‘Stevie’, they commented: ‘I spent a long time trying to pick a name I felt uncomfortable with and the first name I felt comfortable with is Stevie!’
They added they were ‘working on’ changing their name officially on their passport.
