But now you can buy one of his old toilets...
One of EMINEM‘s childhood homes has been removed from auction after it failed to garner its minimum bid on eBay over the weekend.
The Warren, Michigan, three-bedroom was purchased in June from Eminem‘s uncle, Todd Nelson, for $45,000 by Sebastian Lucido and Roland Fraschetti, who had it appraised at $91,000. The pair put it up for sale online on December 5, setting the minimum bid at $120,000.
According to the sellers, the two-storey house on Timken Avenue was built in 1940 and was purchased by the rapper’s great-grandmother in 1952.
“Every time Eminem‘s mom got kicked out of a place, this was the home they’d go to,” Lucido told Rolling Stone. “People think that it must be the ghetto, but it’s actually very nice, which kind of flies in the face of the image Eminem likes to portray.”
One item of the rapper’s available on eBay is one of his old toilets. The commode, which requires a minimum opening bid of $100, is backed up by the seller who claims to have the invoice for the replacement toilet as well as a copy of the cheque signed by Marshall Mathers.
Should this auction prove more fruitful than the childhood home, the seller has three additional toilets for future sale.
