Only one woman knows - his mother Debbie Nelson, at one point reviled on dozens of Internet sites as the most hated mother in the world.
But by cleaning out her own personal closet, Debbie reveals a bitter-sweet story of a single mother who gave her son everything in an attempt to make up for his absent father and her own miserable childhood.
This, her no holes barred autobiography, is an open letter to Marshall Bruce Mathers III, a loving reminder of how they once were, and an attempt to set the record straight by untangling the unspoken and enigmatic alter egos Eminem and Slim Shady.
It reveals that there's much more to the story than his fans ever thought.
