Any time an Eminem story gets posted to five blogs, his estranged mom Debbie pops up for a retort, Candyman/Beetlejuice-style. And so not a week after we reported that an increasingly rotund Marshall is currently recovering from a holiday hospital visit thanks to a serious case of pneumonia, Deb’s blabbing to the Brit tabloids, painting a greasy, acne-covered picture of her son’s current hermit-esque lifestyle that sounds a lot like… he’s a blogger, right down to all the Styrofoam containers and empty beer bottles he swears he’s gonna finally throw away tonight.
The deeply depressed star refuses to stop binge eating and gorges on calorie-busting Mexican takeaways and heart-clogging fillet steak.
In her new book Debbie, reckons her son is barely recognisable these days. She says: “He’s let his blond hair grow out so everything but the ends are dark. His face has broken out in pimples and he’s put on so much weight that he’s causing all sorts of other health problems for himself.
“Since childhood he’s suffered bouts of pneumonia. He’s always had throat infections and he’s asthmatic. His diet can’t help. I worry about his health all the time. He’s always had high blood pressure and his cholesterol levels must be sky high. He orders fillet steak takeout from an expensive restaurant almost every evening.
“I dread to think what his bills are — he pays for everyone hanging around the house.”
Someone get this guy a Boflex and 10cc’s of Proactiv, stat. Us too, while you’re at it.
