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.
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.
