Eminem's Mum Fears Depression Will Kill Rapper

EMINEM is a manic depressive who could do something stupid at any minute, according to the rapper's mother. In new book My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem, Debbie Nelson reveals the Stan hitmaker has been dogged by depression, which worsened after his ex-wife Kim gave birth to their daughter Hailie, who is now 11. And Eminem's estranged mother fears her son's blues have worsened since the rap star and his wife split for a second time last year (06). She prays her book will be a wake-up call for her son. A family friend tells America's Life + Style magazine, "She just hopes he'll read it and realise how loved he is. "She fears she'll end up burying him unless he gets help... We all see him teetering on the edge of self-destruction."

Wow ........ cant a bloke grieve ..... he,s lost deshaun he was his bud his best mate if you look on all his videos deshaun is there .... l think his mom needs to be there as support not writing books about him! if she feels she needs to say it then why not send him a copy of a draft book why does she need to print it so the whole world can say poor you ? so she can make money off of Eminem,s back if l needed parent tips l wouldn,t look in her direction thats for sure .... let the bloke get over what he,s been through and pick himself up ..... how would you feel if you was him ?

Wow. I think I heard in one of his various songs something about his mother having Munchausen Syndrome, taking him to drs all the time and s**t. You know, its a sad shame when someone projects their negativity onto their children as such. I'm sure she hopes he reads the book because she just doesn't have any other inroad, and in order to increase whatever perceived "disorder" he has. I doubt he will ever read this, but I just want to say: when you start losing people in your life for one reason or another -- even if they are family members -- because you join a religion, leave a religion, start a new life, get money or a career that they don't have (etc. etc.) many people fight back. For many (I've seen in my own life too) they do it by "accusing" you of being mentally ill. And, diagnose you with all sorts of conditions even when they aren't psychologists by even in their extreme imagination. Such as, they don't even have a high school diploma, for example. (Yet, seem to think they are qualified to diagnose their close relatives).ITS BULLs**t.And, 50 Cent said the same damn thing on his video (I forgot the name) something about... when you try to leave, the hood fights back (about the people shooting at him on his way to Columbia).Alas, rise above it. Don't let them suck u in.Soror InannaKalamazoo, MI

I would just like to say that after reading the postings that have been put on i felt i had to make a comment. I am not the biggest eminem fan although i do feel he is very talented. I find it sad that a mother and son have such a rollercoaster relationship. I myself have children my oldest lad who is 12 is a massive eminem fan. I can relate to eminem as his life was'nt much different to mine apart from my mother is a gem and without her i dont know where i would be. As for my father well thats a different story altogether. I feel that when you have children you have a total different look on life, and there is'nt nothing you would'nt do for them. I would never hurt or disrespect my children and i only hope after reading about how marshal's mom is hoping that her book may help her son (how i'm not sure) but then its not upto me to judge, that this is the only reason she has done this and not for the money. My heart goes out to marshal and i really hope he gets through and manages to cope with what is happening around him. I only hope he realises and knows that he has given so many people not just children but adults hope in the sense that it doesnt matter what your background is or how much money you have if you really want to you can change your life and turn it around. You never forget people that have gone or the things you used to do with them. The pain never goes away completely some days are harder than others but you must continue on because i find that for everyone who comes into your life and makes such an impact on you, a part of them live on in yourself. So for everyone that has lost someone close to them and feel lost i want to say that how lucky we are to have had them in our lives in the first place and even though they have been taken one thing that cant be took away from us are our memories. To marshal mathers mother some times the damage is already done and as we know no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. Maybe its time to sit back and try to understand and be there for your son and help him cope with all that is going on around him instead of writting a book about it, after all i think some things are private and personal and need go no further than they have to. I'm just so glad that my children will never worry on there own and will always be able to tell me any sort of problems they have. Marshal needs his family by his side, there the only ones that can help him get through this. Good Luck Marshal hope it all gets easier. Hayley needs you.
