Eminem's childhood home has been demolished following a fire.

The house in Detroit, which the rap star grew up in, was damaged during a blaze earlier this month.

The property, which features on the cover of Eminem's new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, was later declared "structurally unsafe" and has now been demolished.

The star's family no longer owned the house.

Before it was demolished the house was up for auction but did not sell. It has been reported that officials tried to reach out to the Lose Yourself rapper to see if he wanted to buy the house.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
