Man Who Invaded Eminem’s Home Was “There To Kill Him”

Man Who Invaded Eminem's Home Was "There To Kill Him"

Police testified on the Eminem home invasion case Wednesday.

When Marshal Mathers, better known as rapper Eminem, woke up on April 5th to a man standing behind him, he thought it was his nephew. According to Michigan police, it was actually Matthew David Hughes waiting to kill the “Real Slim Shady” rapper.

“When Mr. Mathers asked him why he was there, he was told by Mr. Hughes that he was there to kill him,” officer Adam Hackstock told the Macomb County District Court.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Hughes has been in custody since the incident, and appeared at court wearing shackles and a prison jumpsuit. He is charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property. While Eminem did not attend the court session, his lawyer watched via video stream.

Hackstock testified that when he arrived to Eminem’s gated community, Hughes was wrestling with a security guard. He also said that Eminem personally escorted the home invader through a TV area, game room and basketball court before reaching an exit.

Detective Dan Quinn told the court that based on security footage, Hughes had been on the property for “quite some time” before breaking and entering into the home using a brick. Hughes apparently had no other weapons.

Hughes, who is apparently homeless, is now being held on a $50,000 dollar cash bond. The public defendant for Hughes, Richard Glanda, asked for the bail to be reduced, arguing that “the victim’s fame was irrelevant to his decision.” Outside the courtroom, Glanda also blamed the incident on Hughes’ mental health issues. “In my opinion, I think there’s some sort of mental issues involved here,” he said.

According to the Department of Justice, more than half of inmates in America have a mental health problem.

Not to be bogged down by murder threats and court proceedings, Eminem is currently celebrating a feature on Big Sean’s new album Detroit 2. Check out his verse below.
