Eminem’s Mother Sued Him For $10,000,000

In 1999, Debbie Mathers-Briggs took issue with some of the things her son had been saying about her and decided to file a lawsuit against Marshall Mathers III, better known to the rest of the world as Eminem. Mrs. Mathers-Briggs claimed his comments in a series of interviews were slanderous to her and had caused her a great deal of emotional distress. When the smoke had cleared on these proceedings, the courts ruled on a settlement of only $25,000! That sounds bad enough, but it gets even worse – the judge ruled that around $23,000 of the settlement was owed to the elder Mathers’ lawyer, so after all this trouble, she only came away with a measly $1,600!
