  • Em's uncle, Todd Nelson, commits suicide

    Saw this in Yahoo! News

    It's from a UK tabloid but I doubt they'd make up something as tragic as this. That'll be too low, even for them.

    This is just too fucked up. Over a dog? Shit.

    EMINEM 'FATHER' SHOOTS HIMSELF

    Oct 20 2004


    EXCLUSIVE

    By Andy Lines


    EMINEM was devastated last night after the uncle who he regarded as his dad committed suicide.

    Todd Nelson shot himself in the head as he sat in his car. He had become depressed over a sheriff's rottweiler which was allegedly terrorising his family.

    The 42-year-old helped raise Eminem, whose real father walked out when the rapper was a baby.

    It is the second close relative the 32-year-old controversial star - real name Marshall Mathers III - has lost to suicide.

    His other uncle, Ronnie, killed himself after being dumped by his girlfriend.

    A family friend said: "This news has hit Marshall hard. It will bring back all the memories of losing Ronnie.

    "To lose two uncles at such a young age is terribly sad, especially as his father has never been around. The fact they both committed suicide is so tragic."

    Eminem's granny, Betty Kresin, said the family was "completely devastated". She added: "I'm so heart-broken, I don't know if I can handle this as well. He'll be buried next to my Ronnie.

    "Todd had been very upset about a rottweiler owned by a local sheriff who was causing problems for his family.

    "The dog scared his girlfriend's son and scratched his car.

    "But when he complained to police, they wouldn't do anything about it.

    "He shot himself in his car in his own backyard. My grandson, Todd junior, found his body. He thought his dad was asleep but he was dead.

    "He called me and then Marshall and the rest of the family."

    Betty said her daughter, Debbie, Eminem's mum, rang the star to tell him they are to bring Todd's body home to St Joseph, Missouri, following his death in Michigan.

    It is the latest family tragedy to strike Eminem.

    His ex-wife, Kim, tried to kill herself four years ago. And mum Debbie, 48, who he once called a slut in a song, is recovering from breast cancer.

    His tormented family life has inspired many of his songs. He recently fell out with Todd over his uncle's plans to sell the family home. But when he was younger, he idolised Todd.

    In the past, his uncle said Eminem had been "a shy kid with few friends".

    He added: "Marshall grew up believing he was different to everyone else. It was something instilled in him from an early age by Debbie, me and his grandmother.

    "Marshall was a happy kid. He was good at entertaining himself and he laughed a lot.

    "I remember one time I walked into his room and saw all these posters of black superstars on his walls. Basketball stars, baseball players, rappers. He would spend hours drawing groups such as Public Enemy and NWA. Even as a kid, he idolised Dr Dre.

    "At the time I thought he was going through some kind of identity crisis. But I guess he just knew from an early age.

    "Everything Marshall has achieved professionally is wonderful. I couldn't be more proud of him."

              if the dude is stupid enough to kill himself over a fuckin dog, it was only gonna be a matter of time before he did something stupid like walk outside, slip on the rain, and break his neck.

              good riddance.

                        no you gotta be kidding-i remember he was practically the host of this dvd i have called "eminem behind the mask"-there some people you listen to and notice...."no theres nothing wrong with this dude hes living in peace", but he kiled himself .....i dont get this. all i have to say is that if somebody like todd can commit suicide-so can eminem and proberbly anybody else that i know.....thats how cool todd apeared-if he can do it anyone can.

                            ^yeah but as soonas em became famous em called todd telling him all the stories of fame, i think they were friends.......even i have a turbulent relationship to some of my fam, but i wouldnt always say "we dont get along". they were close, but you never know what to belive.......one of the people i saw on that eminem dvd (i mentioned on the last post) they interviewed the waitreses in the restourant were eminem would dishwash. she was explaining how it was as em visited(after he was famous) as if they were friends- yet in the book "the real fvcking story" they said that eminem was being arogant to them....tipping them 400 bucks just to show off because they fired and re-hired him in that place like 100 times.

                              the guy must have had some other serious issues.
