Eminem's on 'edge of self destruction' says mum
Debbie Nelson's books warns rapper is manic depressive
Eminen’s mother Debbie Nelson is set to release a tell-all book.
'My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem' allegedly reveals that the rapper is a manic depressive.
According to the book, Eminen’s condition worsened after his ex-wife Kim Mathers gave birth to their daughter Hailie.
A source said: “(Debbie) just hopes he’ll read (the book) and realise how loved he is. She fears she’ll end up burying him unless he gets help…We all see him teetering on the edge of self-destruction.”
Eminem and Nelson have been involved in a feud for years. Nelson hit her son with a £3.5 ($7) million lawsuit in 2002, claiming defamation.
However, the rapper reportedly agreed to foot the medical bill of £100,000 ($200,000) when his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The book will be available in the US early next year, reports SOHH.
