Marshall Bruce Mathers III was born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri, the only child of Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. and Deborah Rae “Debbie” (née Nelson).
He was more of a loner during his early days as friends and family remember Eminem as a happy child, but “a bit of a loner” who was often bullied. One bully, D’Angelo Bailey, severely injured Eminem’s head in an assault.
When it comes to Marshall, he has really gone through a whole lot of down sides during his growing up years. He has been arrested multiple times, suits have been filed and when his childhood friend “Proof” was murdered, Eminem went into depression.
He has a daughter “Hailey” who he loves so much and raps about constantly.
