Eminem's Mom Says Her Son is a Fake

Stop reading this right now if you want to continue believing that Eminem is the bad-ass, troubled man he is today, due to his very tumultuous upbringing and the lack of love he got from his mama.Okay, I warned you.Em's mom, Debbie Nelson is releasing a tell-all book, My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem. In it, Deb insists that her "tortured" son made up a whole lot of the tough childhood stories he tells in his music, in order to succeed in rap. PageSix.com obtained the introduction of the book. Here's taste: "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."Debbie says now, after years of being attacked both verbally and physically by her son's fans, she is ready to shed some light on the "real story". "This book is my way of setting the record straight," she explains. Some other interesting tidbits from Em's mom? The rapper was a total mama's boy "who was so jealous of his mother's new man, he wouldn't let him sleep with her on their wedding night (creepy); he beat his mother up on his 23rd birthday; and was 'so strung out,' he doesn't remember 1999."Talk about a family throwing each other under the bus -- or, in this case, a trailer.function csOpenWidgetShare(){ window.open('http://video.ivillage.com/widgetxml/seedpopup/dailyblabberpopup.html','DailyBlabber','toolbar=0,location=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=1,width=534,height=500'); }
