Eminem's childhood home demolished

Eminem's former home in Detroit has been demolished

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

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
