Superstar rapper Eminem has been hit with a lawsuit by his aunt and uncle in an unusual claim filed in Macomb County Court, a lawyer confirmed with AllHipHop.com.
Jack and Betti Schmitt claim that they sold their Missouri home because the Detroit rapper wanted to maintain family ties. The lawsuit says that Eminem built the Schmitt’s a home and promised to pay them $100,000 per year.
The lawsuit further states that the rapper refuses to put the title in the Schmitt’s name and that he has fallen short on his promise to pay them the $100,000.
The couple is seeking at least $25,000, as the Macomb County Circuit Court handles all civil cases involving at least that amount.
They are represented by Kevin Green, an attorney in Shelby Township, Michigan. Green confirmed the lawsuit with AllHipHop.com, but declined further comment.
The rapper recently cancelled his European leg of the “Anger Management 3” tour due to exhaustion and other related medical issues.
Interscope confirmed the rapper was being treated for various medical ailments, but none were specifically named.
Representatives for Eminem did not have comments as of press time.
