Eminem 'Lied' About Childhood Says Mum

Rap star EMINEM lied to his fans about life growing up on a trailer park, according to his mother. The Without Me hitmaker shot to fame singing about his childhood in a poor area of Detroit, Michigan. But the star's mother Debbie Nelson refutes the claims in her tell-all book My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem. She says, "After his first album, Infinite, flopped, he reinvented himself as white trailer trash with a crazy welfare mom. "I was shocked when I first heard the lyrics... but he constantly reassured me it was all a big joke... I went along with it for Marshall's sake."

Maybe its true, but his music still helped me through. Its hard to beleive because theres a lot of emotion in his songs. If it is, hes still talented, so good job there mom whatever your name is. what was the point of your little book, to make make some money? Good thing you dont got any fans.
