Meet Debbie Mathers, Eminem’s mom who not only tried to sue him for 10 million dollars in a “slander” suit, but also released a set of diss tracks with two unknown rappers to get back at Eminem for the things he said about her. She lost the suit and em released even more songs about her abuse.

The Mother Who Sued Her Own Son — the Most Famous White Rapper Alive

Welcome to Bad Moms. This Mother’s Day, as we celebrate the beautiful angels kind enough to raise our sorry asses, we’re profiling five of the most notorious moms in history. Who says dads get to be the only antiheroes in pop culture?

“Whenever something good happens, the bad always follows,” Eminem said once about his upbringing. “That’s the story of my life since the day I was born.”

Those aren’t lyrics from an Eminem song, but a quote he gave to the Detroit Free Press in 2000 about being raised by Debbie Mathers, a single mother in a trailer park in Detroit near the boulevard 8 Mile, a major thoroughfare in a rundown neighborhood of poor black kids.

    He mentions his mum a lot in his early stuff. I remember Trevor McDonald (old Engish news reader) doing an interview with her.

    Haha, I remember this!

    That really sucks to not have your mother on your side. I feel for those who have no parents to turn to.
