Eminem Won’t Testify in Anger Management Suit, Case Settled
Eminem will no longer be required to testify in a U.S. court as to why he missed a show at Ireland’s Slane Castle during his Anger Management Tour in 2005. According to RTÉ News, the concert’s promoter MCD Productions, has settled with the three London based insurance companies who had refused to pay out nearly $2 million in claims. At the time, Em cancelled ten stops on the European leg of the tour citing exhaustion. Shortly thereafter, he underwent treatment at a rehab facility for addiction to sleep medication. In March, Justice Peter Kelly of the High Court in Dublin issued a letter to the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Michigan requesting that a judge there hear the rapper’s testimony. The explanation would have then been read into the Irish court’s record. The terms of MCD’s settlement against Liberty Syndicate Management Ltd., Brit Insurance Ltd., and Markel International Ltd., were not disclosed.
