Eminem Pays For Uncle's Funeral

LATEST: Rapper EMINEM has reportedly agreed to pay for the funeral of his uncle, who shot himself in the head last week (ends14OCT04).

The STAN star's real father deserted him when he was a baby so he was raised by TODD NELSON, who allegedly committed suicide because he was being terrorised by a sheriff's rottweiler.

Nelson's mother and the hip-hop star's grandmother BETTY KRESIN will bury her son in his home state of Missouri, although it is unclear if Eminem will attend the service because of the attention it would bring, and because he reportedly fell out with Nelson over the sale of the family home, reports British newspaper the DAILY MIRROR.

A friend of the rapper - real name MARSHALL MATHERS III - says, "Marshall will pay for it all. Todd was not very well off and Marshall's gesture has been welcomed by the family."

Nelson is Eminem's second close relative to kill himself - the star's other uncle, RONNIE MATHERS, killed himself last year (03) following a traumatic break-up.
