    Debbie was pregnant with Marshall when she was just in her teenage years. She was abandoned by her husband, Marshal Mathers II, and as a result struggled to make ends meet and even suffered various mental illnesses. Her relationship with her son was very uneasy, which can be known in some of the songs written by him. 

    She had a very problematic childhood because her parents decided to quit the marriage and divorced each other. Debbie was very young when that happened. She started living with her mother, who then decided to re-marry after a couple of years. 

    The reason Debbie was harsh to her children might be because of what she suffered from during her own childhood. She used to be physically harassed by her mother as well as her step-father. 

    Her step-father brought his own two children with him, namely; Ronnie Polkinghorn and Betty Renee. Ronnie, her step-brother committed suicide, her own brother Steven had a stroke, and Todd was imprisoned for the murder of his brother-in-law. Her step-sister currently serves at Eminem’s mansion in Clinton Township as a caretaker.

    She met Marshall Mathers II, her husband, when she was studying at 'Lancaster High School'. She decided to drop out and marry him when she was just 15 years. She gave birth to Eminem at the tender age of 18. Marshal II abandoned Debbie and Eminem when he was born. 

    She even struggled to make ends meet. Due to this she even suffered from mental illness. She then decided to marry Berger Olsen Au Gres but soon broke up because of her illness. She was in a relationship with Don DeMarc which ended because of her illness. Her illness became the same reason for which her marriage with Fred Samara Jr. ended. The pair has a son named Nathan Kane.

    She was even slapped with a lawsuit by Neil Alpert, the guy who helped her write the book, 'My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem', on the reason that she failed to pay him the 25% profits from the sale of the book.

    Eminem described her as a 'drug addict', which can clearly be felt and seen in his song, 'My Mom'.
