Eminem is being sued by an aunt and uncle from St. Joe.

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/10/25/entertainment/main971984.shtml

The Schmitts claim in the lawsuit that they lived in St. Joseph, Missouri, until mid-2002, when they moved to Michigan at the request of their nephew, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III.

According to the lawsuit, the Schmitts claim Eminem had agreed to pay them $100,000 a year for five years and provide them with a house worth up to $350,000. They say the rapper has given them only $165,000 since 2002 and the Schmitts received a notice July 13 telling them to leave the property.

Eminem's attorney argued in court that no work was performed for the money, and there was no contract between the Schmitts and Eminem.

Yeah,I knew,however,when it comes to music,I'd much rather pimp St Joe as the home of Steve Walsh,frontman for the band Kansas.

I've more than once seen his birth place listed as KCMO. His family moved to Detroit when we was 12 or 14 or something like that

Don't buy that for a second. He wanted to pimp Leavenworth because of Melissa Etheridge. Ask Joe about that pink wristband he never takes off.

Actually, he was born in KC according to some TV show I saw a long time ago. I looked around on the web and I think it was at St. Mary's, which is where I was born too- that's the only reason I remember this.

Even though I live in St Joe I have never kept up with him nor his career however as I don't recall anyone being gunned down at Aldi's I decided to do some checking and found out he had two uncles both of whom committed suicide.

Here's a story (http://www.freep.com/entertainment/music/eminem22e_20041022.htm)

Sounds like that family is the pride of St. Joe.

Nelson was charged with animal torture on Oct. 13. He was accused of intentionally hitting a neighbor's dog with his car. Kresin described the dog as "a mean, vicious rottweiler" that had continually threatened Nelson and his family. Upon his release from an Oscoda County jail on a $20,000 bond, he drove to Deborah Nelson's home in Dryden to borrow money for legal representation. He continued on to Mt. Clemens, fearful of returning to Lewiston, Kresin said. Nelson spent eight years in a Missouri prison during the 1990s for manslaughter in the defensive slaying of his brother-in-law.
