Eminem's Mom Upsets More Than Just Her SonWed Apr 16, 2008 @ 11:23AM PST

Rapper Eminem once accused his mother Debbie of giving him Munchausen Syndrome as a child as a way to gain attention for herself. In retaliation, Debbie wrote a book, "My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem: Setting the Record Straight," which garnered her even more attention.
Now Debbie's agent is accusing her of being less than honorable. In a lawsuit filed in Michigan Circuit Court, agent Neal Alpert and the Rachel Erin Corporation, say that Debbie, John Blake Publishing, and British publisher Watson Little, haven't remitted payment to them for services rendered. The plaintiffs say they are owed 25% of gross profits, or more than $25,000.
Apparently the book was a huge hit in Britain, having sold more than 100,000 copies.
