Eminem attacked by mother

Eminem has been branded a liar by his mother Debbie Nelson

Eminem has been branded a liar by his mother.

Debbie Nelson claims the image her son - real name Marshall Mathers -painted of her being a bad parent addicted to medication, living off welfare and neglectful of her youngest child is wholly untrue.

In her new memoir 'My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem', Debbie says: "At first I went along with it for Marshall's sake - if I made one mistake as a mother, it was giving in to my eldest son's every whim."

Debbie added the pair were very close when he was a child, and claims he told her he negatively portrayed her because "the fouler he was, the more the audience loved him".

She explains: "He never knew his father and I did all I could to make up for it. I wasn't happy when he made up a whole new life for himself - what mother wants to be known as a pill-popping alcoholic who lives on welfare?

"To tell the truth, I was heartbroken. The lies started coming thick and fast - and not just from Marshall. I think he's forgotten the good times we had, and this book is my way of setting the record straight."

Eminem has attacked his mother in a number of songs, including his first hit single 'My Name Is' which included the scathing line: "99 per cent of my life I was lied to/ I just found out my mom does more dope than I do."


The hip hop superstar returns to perform 'My Name Is' and 'The Real Slim Shady', along with recent hits 'Monster' and 'Rap God' to his legions of fans. All you other Slim Shadys are just imitating.
