Eminem Pays Mother's Medical Bills

Subscribe to Eminem alerts

Eminem has reportedly agreed to pay his dying mother's medical bills in an attempt to reconcile their relationship. The STAN rapper has allegedly agreed to pay $368,000 (GBP210,000) on hospital charges for his mum DEBBIE MATHERS-BRIGGS, who is suffering from stage four breast cancer - the deadly disease has already spread to other parts of her body. The pair have barely spoken since 2002 when Debbie, 51, sued her son for defamation following the release of the song CLEANIN' OUT MY CLOSET, in which he brands her a drug addict, an alcoholic and a "selfish b**ch". However, mother and son are showing signs of wanting to put the past behind them. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "The nightmare Debbie has been going through with her cancer has put everything in perspective. "She is very weak and knows the prognosis is bleak. She is desperate to build bridges with her son and put things right before it's too late. "(Eminem) has recently started helping her financially with her medical bills, they have spoken a few times on the phone and now she desperately hopes he will visit her." Mathers-Briggs was diagnosed in 2003, and faced bankruptcy a year later due to mounting hospital fees. During this time she said of her son, "I don't want his money. It would be wonderful though, if he just called me with some honesty and sincerity. "A lot of people say I am really dying of a broken heart."
