Eminem's Dad Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr Dead at 67

Eminem‘s biological father, Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr., has reportedly passed away from a heart attack at age 67.

TMZ reports that he passed at his home near Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Eminem has rapped about his father in his past songs and admitted to never meeting him in person. He’s mentioned in songs like “My Name Is” and “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.”

Eminem‘s father moved away shortly after his birth to live in California, while Eminem grew up in Detroit, Mich.

He also has expressed that he used to send his dad letters, but they always came back with “return to sender.”

Eminem‘s dad wrote him an open letter in 2001, published in a newspaper.
