Eminem’s dad, Marshal Bruce Marthers has been confirmed dead. According to his family and neighbors in Fort Wayne, Indiana he suffered a heart attack at his home.
It is no news that Eminem and his father had not been on good terms as he’d been seen to attack his father in his song Cleaning Out My Closet. “My faggot father must’ve had his panties up in a bunch ‘cause he split,” he rapped. “I wonder if he even kissed me goodbye/No, I don’t, on second thought, I just fuckin’ wished he would die/I look at Hailie, and I couldn’t picture leavin’ her side.”
His father published a letter addressed to his son in a newspaper explaining his side of the story in 2001. He claimed Debbie kept him away from Em, but they reportedly never reconciled.
