Eminem's Grandma: Mending Fences
Eminem's grandmother is the latest family member of the controversial rapper seeking to reconcile, telling BBC radio that she wants to "stop this war between us because life is too short." Grandma Betty is following in the footsteps of Eminem's mother, who may reportedly drop a $10 million lawsuit against her son and his father, who now reportedly says he wants to get to know the son he walked out on as a baby. His grandmother insisted that Eminem, 28, is "a very kind, loving and caring father." And she sympathized with his hectic celebrity life. "Everywhere he goes . . . there is always somebody coming up to him, wanting an autograph . . . he has no life anymore." His grandmother wanted the family to bury its heavily publicized differences. "Eminem was not given a gold spoon or a silver spoon when he was born . . . he had no father in his life." She added that her grandson tried to reach out to his father at times, but his father always returned his letters. Meanwhile, protesters gathered outside the site of Eminem's concert in Manchester, England to sound off about the controversial rapper's lyrics about homosexuals and women on his Grammy-nominated album, "The Marshall Mathers LP," according to the Associated Press. It was the latest in a string of similar demonstrations across the U.S. and in England about the rapper.
