Eminem’s father Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. has passed away at the age of 67, reports TMZ.
The superstar rapper has not commented on the development but Bruce reportedly died after a heart attack neat Fort Wayne, Indiana according to friends and neighbors. He was at his home, according to the celebrity website.
Bruce was mentioned very frequently in Eminem’s songs from early in his career about how he abandoned the family. Eminem apparently had never met him in person and only spoke on the phone with him a few times. Marshall Jr. split with Em’s mother Debbie shortly after she gave birth to the rapper.
