Betty Kresin is Debbie's mother. She's got six children of three different men, and the oldest one is Eminem's mother. Eminem's favorite uncle Ronnie was her son. Eminem grew up for a while at his grandma's house, but the relationship between them has since spiraled downward. The reason: Eminem wanted to release Ronnie's demo tapes, but Betty disapproved and stopped Eminem from using them. They no longer speak.
Debbie became pregnant at the age of 17 and married her boyfriend Marshall Mathers II. The marriage only lasted for one year, because he walked out on Debbie and Eminem. Thereafter she had several relationships. She had another baby (Eminem's half brother Nathan) in 1986. His father is Fred Samara Jr., who denied that he was his son and was sued to pay alimony. The relationship between Eminem and his mom is very bad: in 1999 she filed a lawsuit against her son (10 million dollars), because he named her in an interview a 'drug addicted alcoholic and vagabund'. Now Eminem has to pay Debbie $25,000 dollars compensation for pain and suffering. The relationship between the two is still bad.
Eminem's dad married Debbie Mathers-Briggs in the year 1972, when she was already pregnant with Eminem. The marriage only lasted one year: after Marshall II walking out. Eminem never saw his father again after that. His dad tried to approach his son since Eminem became famous, but Eminem does not care about his dad and rejects any contact with him.
Although Ronald (Ronnie) was Eminem's uncle, he was only two months older than Eminem. They grew up like brothers and you can say without overstatement that he was the only relative Eminem really loved. Ronnie committed suicide in the year 1991 at the age of 19 by shooting himself in the head. The reason is apparently because of a girlfriend at the time. It took a long time for Eminem to cope with the death of Ronnie. The dog tag Eminem wears used to be Ronnie's, his grandmother gave him the tag after he died.
Todd Nelson is Debbie's brother and the uncle of Eminem. Divorced first wife, Janice. Remarried Katherine. Was sentenced to eight years in prison for manslaughter for shooting Janice's brother in self-defense. Educated in law, Todd is campaigning against asbestos use in prisons. Marshall lived with Todd for 5 years during his childhood. Today Eminem has no contact with his uncle. Todd also made the DVD 'Behind The Mask'. "It never occurs to me that he's famous," Nelson said. "I changed his diapers when he was a kid." Todd has recently shot himself in his car. He was depressed because the police wouldn't remove a dog that was threatening his family.
