Bio

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 for San Diego. His ex-wife didn’t know his new address, that 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. He tells, that he is in good terms with his children from the second marriage, because their mother wasn’t so troubled as Debbie.

During several years Mathers Sr. was alcohol addicted. But he managed to cope with this passion, and now he is clean. The man was dating Teresa Harbin. He hadn’t been close with his famous son till his death.

The rapper’s father died on June 26, 2019 (some sources suppose, it happened a day or to earlier) because of a sudden heart attack. Bruce  was 67 at the moment of his death. He passed away at his house in Fort Wayne, Indiana. His neighbours confirmed the sad news.
