Eminem’s Mother Sued Over Book

Eminem’s estranged mother, Debbie Nelson, is being sued by a man who says he was under contract as her literary agent and has not received his cut of the profits from her tell-all book about her famous son. According to the Detroit News, Neal Alpert and the Rachel Erin Corporation filed the suit against Nelson in Michigan’s Oakland County Circuit Court on Monday (April 7). The suit claims that Em’s mother and her publisher Walton, Little, went behind Alpert’s back and released the book My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem: Setting the Record Straight on My Life as Eminem’s Mother. “As her agent, he was entitled to a percentage of profits but hasn’t seen a dime,” said Drew Norton, Alpert’s attorney. Alpert claims that Nelson hired him as her agent in book, TV and film projects, for which he was entitled to 25 percent of any profits. He claims that the book was his idea and that, under a July 2006 contract, Nelson agreed to have Walton, Little pay commissions from sales of the book to Erin. Alpert and Erin claim that they have not seen any payment for the project. The suit states that the book, which was released in the U.K. last September, has sold over 100,000 copies. My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem is scheduled to be released in the U.S. this week.
