Celebrity's Relative
    (circa 1956- )
    Recorded 'Dear Marshall'
    She got pregnant with Marshall Bruce Mathers III when she was fifteen.
    She has been married five times.
    Her home page '' is an effort to make money off of Eminem's fame.
    Before seeing the movie, she criticized Kim Basinger's portrayal of her in '8 Mile' as offensive. Basinger plays Stephanie Smith, a fictional character, based somewhat on her life.
    Her lawyers said if they want Debbie's comments on the movie, she wants to be paid.
    She was the foster mother of 13 year old Kim, who eventually married her foster brother Eminem.
    She sued ex-husband Fred Samara, Jr. to get alimony.
    She filed a $10 million lawsuit against Eminem because he 'portrayed his mother as an unstable drug user who regularly filed frivolous lawsuits (1999).'
    She was willing to settle the $10 million defamation suit for only $2 million.
    She filed a second defamation suit, for $1 million because Eminem told a publication she was 'strung-out on prescription drugs, addicted to bingo, and always looking to earn an easy dollar the good old American way, via the courts (September 1999).'
    She settled for $25,000 dollars as compensation for 'pain and suffering.'
    She later claimed: 'My lawyer pressured me into this. I tried to fire Mr. Gibson twice, and he wouldn't accept it. He refused to withdraw.' (June 10, 2001).
    The judge refused to allow her to reopen the lawsuit (June 28, 2001).
    She admittedly took prescription medications, including Valium and Vicatin during Eminem's childhood, but claims she didn't abuse them.
    Trying to put a different spin on things, she said 'I never intended to sue my son. The lawsuit was my attempt to hold on to my home. I'd given Marshall my trailer to rent when I moved back to Missouri. But Kim fell behind with the payments. I figured I had to sell it to pay the debt, but she wouldn't let me. She threatened me with a lawyer, so I consulted one myself. Then the whole thing just escalated. The first thing I knew, I swear, was when Marshall rang me and said, 'Mom, why are you suing me for $10 million?' I nearly fell over. It was ludicrous. Then word got out and the world saw me as an evil bitch from hell. What mother sues her own son? I was cursed in public, spat at in shopping malls' (September 2000).
    Her mother, Betty, said: 'Debbie had a lot of men in and out of her life, including one memorable boyfriend called Charlie. He went home and destroyed their duplex - even cutting up their king-sized waterbed. She called me crying, asking me to help clean up the flood.'
    Eminem recorded 'Cleaning Out My Closet,' which almost defies Debbie to bring another lawsuit, and ends in pure hatred for his mother (2002).
    Her other son, Nathan, described her as 'nuts.'
    Betty Kresin, Eminem's grandmother and mother of Debbie plans to write a book about them, she says of Debbie 'Oh, I figure she'll sue me, She's always going to sue somebody.'
    Her mother, Betty, was 16, when she was born.
    She gave birth to one of the world's most inspiring rappers.
