Rapper Eminem's younger brother continues to enjoy a close relationship with their mother DEBBIE - even though the STAN star has viciously attacked her in several of his songs.

While NATE MATHERS, 18, lives with his hip-hop star brother in Detroit, Michigan, the teenager has retained a strong bond with his mum because his relationship with Debbie is vastly different to the one Eminem experienced during his childhood.

Nate explains, "My relationship with our mom is very different to Marshall's. I've never seen her the way he does. They have lots of problems. I don't get into it.

"She's my mom and I love her."
