Marshall Mathers, Sr. Dead At 67

2014 MTV Movie Awards - Show

Eminem’s father, Marshall Bruce Mathers, died this past week near Fort Wayne, Michigan after he suffered a heart attack at his home.

Throughout Eminem’s career he has talked in numerous tracks that his dad abandoned him; tracks like “My Name Is” and “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” reflect that.

In 2001, Bruce went to a newspaper and published his side of the story via long letter claiming Eminem’s mother kept him away. Even after it was published Eminem never reconciled with his father.

Marshall Bruce:

I'm saying all this in the News of the World because they're the only paper who've bothered to find the truth. I'd get on a plane right now, this second, and go anywhere in the world if you'd meet with me. Please get in touch.

Sending our condolences to Em and his whole family.
