Eminem's Mum: I Want Reconciliation
Debbie hopes return to family life will mellow rapper...
Eminem's estranged mum is hoping to kiss and make up with her son after he remarries his ex-wife.
Debbie Nelson, 50, is hoping that when Em settles down again they will be able to put aside their differences. Despite their rift, the rapper has been helping with her medical bills as she battles lymphoma.
"I thank Marshall for helping me stay alive," she said. "I want to be around to see my granddaughter, Haillie, grow up. That's what keeps me going." But Nelson hasn't seen Haillie since her public slanging match with Eminem in 2000, and she hasn't been invited to his wedding on January 14.
She added: "Now that he's getting his life back on track with Kim, I'm hopeful that someday we'll be able to reconcile and move forward, to get beyond all of the hurt and bitterness."
