Eminem’s father is the sample of other parent, who doesn’t perform his duties. He left his son (and namesake), when the boy was about a year and a half. He wasn’t present in his life from that moment. Numerous times Eminem wrote him letters, but got no answer.
When the rapper became popular, his father read an article about him in the magazine, and saw the pic of his ex-wife Debbie with a baby boy on her hands. He immediately recognized that photo and that child and decided to reconcile with him.
In 2010 he wrote Eminem an open letter through social media. He told his son, that he really loved him and changed his diapers, and he even tried to save his marriage with Debbie, but “they were too young” and “it was crazy”. After that, he moved to California and later changed it to San Diego. His ex-wife didn’t know his new address, that is why he couldn’t get the emotional letters he wrote to him.
Marshall’s father earned his living as a contractor. According to his own words, he “wasn’t poor”. The man re-married a woman, whose name he didn’t publicize, and welcomed two kids with her – Sarah and Michael.
