How is Michael Mathers related to Eminem?

Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. who is the biological father of rapper and songwriter, Eminem, is also the father of Michael Mathers.

Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. and Deborah Rae Nelson are the biological parents of Eminem.

When Eminem was just a tiny baby of six months, his father packed up and moved to California, leaving him and his mother behind.

His father Marshall Mathers Jr quickly moved on and married another woman with whom he had two more kids, Michael and Sarah Mathers.

Michael was therefore born in California.

Eminem really wanted a relationship with his father, so he wrote him a lot of letters.

Sadly, his father wasn’t into building a relationship, and all the letters Eminem sent came back with a ‘return to sender’ stamp.

Likewise, much later in life, Marshall Bruce also tried to reconnect with Eminem.

Sadly, Eminem made it clear that he didn’t want any connection with Bruce because he left him when he was little.

Eminem was also upset that Bruce never reached out, despite the rapper’s many attempts over the years to contact him.

Besides that, Eminem didn’t get along well with his mom, Deborah.

In his songs like ‘Cleanin’ Out My Closet’ and ‘My Mom,‘ he said she had problems like Munchausen syndrome by proxy and was addicted to Valium.
