The Real Reason Eminem's Mother Sued Him

Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known as Eminem, was the subject of a lawsuit in 1999. (via MTV). Debbie Mathers, his own mother, was the plaintiff in the action, much to the surprise of the public at the time. It’s no secret that the mother and son’s relationship has always been rocky. In fact, in his music, Eminem regularly sings about his childhood. In the year 2000, the “”Whenever something wonderful happens, the horrible always follows,” the “Lose Yourself” musician told the Detroit Free Press (via Mel Magazine). That has been my life story since the day I was born.” His words may come across as unnecessarily pessimistic, but he has reason to be so pessimistic.

 

Eminem was reared in a trailer park by his single mother after his father abandoned him when he was a child (via Mel Magazine). His childhood was ultimately marked by abusive stepfathers and partners, as well as his mother’s alcoholism and issues with Munchausen syndrome by proxy. The “‘Till I Collapse” rapper was not hesitant to speak openly about his childhood troubles and his struggles with drinking (via Rolling Stone). He stated that a lot of his troubles in numerous aspects of his life originated from his past and how his mother treated him when he got clean from drugs and alcohol.

 

But how did things deteriorate to the point that Eminem’s mother attempted to sue him for $10 million? Continue reading to find out.

In a nutshell, Debbie Mathers, Eminem’s mother, sued her son for the facts he divulged about her in his songs and to the public. In September 1999, she filed a $10 million defamation case and was given $25,000 in a settlement (via Lad Bible). Eminem allegedly slandered her in interviews with Rolling Stone, The Source, and Rap Pages, among others, according to the lawsuit (via MTV). She also claimed that the slander caused her to lose her mobile home, as well as shame, restless nights, and damage to her credit rating.

 

Eminem’s lawyer defended him at the time, saying: “Eminem’s music is a reflection of his life. Everything he said is verifiable, and the truth is an ironclad defense to a defamation allegation.”

 

Fans of Eminem’s music can learn about his upbringing and relationship with his mother through a number of tracks. “Ninety-nine percent of my life I was lied to / I just found out my mom does more dope than I do (Damn!) / I told her I’d grow up to be a renowned rapper / Make an album about doin’ drugs and name it after her,” Eminem raps in “My Name Is” (via Mel Magazine). Mathers authored a memoir after the case in which she justified herself as a mom, claiming that her sole crime was loving her son too much.

Kourtney Kardashian has released a make-up-free selfie that has convinced her admirers that she is expecting a child with her boyfriend Travis Barker.

 

The 42-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star ditched her customary make-up look and shared a photo of herself in her garden with the sun beating down on her.

 

The reality star posted an Instagram Story with her hair pulled back into a ponytail and two front parts separated into braids that hung down over her face.

LOL ready for ping pong,” Kourtney captioned the photo.

This came after Kourtney posted on her Instagram Stories that she was having “late night cravings” and that she was outside a restaurant late at night.

 

“For when those late-night cravings arise,” she captioned the photo.

 

Fans of the KUWTK star have noted that she has changed her diet, giving up meat and fish and abstaining from alcohol.

“Why you could be gaining weight (and it’s not because of food),” the reality star captioned the photo.

 

The message included a link to a Poosh lifestyle article regarding PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome).

Kendall Jenner is being sued for $1.8 million for missing a photo session in Italy after Covid-19 hit

Kendall Jenner is being sued by a well-known Italian fashion designer for only taking part in one of two scheduled photo shoots, but her management team claims COVID is to blame and that the company refused to be flexible.

Liu Jo has filed a lawsuit alleging that… Kendall was paid $1.5 million to appear in two shoots for Liu Jo in early 2019, one for the Spring/Summer 2020 campaign and the other for the Fall/Winter 2020 campaign.

Liu Jo says Kendall fulfilled her responsibility for the first shoot in 2019 and got more than $1.3 million by Feb. 2020 when it was time for the second session … But then came the coronavirus pandemic.

The paperwork claims… Kendall “ultimately turned down all of Liu Jo’s good-faith efforts of compromise,” according to the Italian design company, which offered to reschedule for the fall of 2020.

The company claims it sought to work with her to shoot in Italy in October 2020, but she was already scheduled to shoot with another designer… Kendall, on the other hand, is said to have informed them it wouldn’t work.

Liu Jo claims that it was clear at that point that she had no intention of fulfilling her contract, so she had no choice but to sue… It’s asking for at least $1.8 million in compensation.

Kendall’s crew, however, is said to have sought to work out a deal to shoot in the United States during the pandemic, but was unable to do so. According to our sources, she has always intended to finish every transaction… And it’s regrettable that Liu Jo chose this path.

According to a spokesman for The Society Management,… “On behalf of Ms. Kendall Jenner, the Society Management has consistently offered Liu Jo alternate dates and venues to complete a commitment that was forced to be delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.”

Kendall “has gladly offered to finish services honoring her promises,” according to reports.
