Eminem and His Many Feuds

Originally posted 05/12/2009 05:45PM

Controversy is nothing new to Eminem. The rapper, who was on the receiving end of Nick Cannon's scathing blog post this week, has a long history of high-profile feuds with singers, family members and even a puppet. Here's a rundown of his most explosive encounters – do you have a favorite?

Christina Aguilera
The bad blood started in 2000 when Eminem namechecked Christina Aguilera in his single "The Real Slim Shady," and stated she had performed oral sex on both MTV veejay Carson Daly and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst. "It's disgusting, it's offensive and, above all, it's not true," an Aguilera rep told the New York Daily News at the time.

Not to be outdone, Aguilera kicked it up another notch, recording a parody rap called "Will the Real Slim Shady Please Shut Up." She pulled no punches: "Little twit blasts me on his new CD. Why? 'Cause I turned him down for a date," she raps. "As for the question of who came first, was it Carson daly or was it Fred Durst? I'm sorry Slim, but this is gonna hurt. They both came closer than you ever will, jerk."

Debbie Mathers
Proving that no one is sacred in Eminem's world, the rapper has even feuded with his own mother. After several rocky years, it went into overdrive when he rapped about raping and killing her. The public disparage in 1999 led to her filing a $10 million slander suit against him.

Their fighting escalated through 2007, when Mathers released an explosive tell-all autobiography called My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem: Setting the Record Straight on My Life as Eminem's Mother.
