Eminem’s Mother To Wed Bisexual Agent Who Sued Her

Posted: Moday – November 30, 2009

The mother of superstar rapper Eminem, Debbie Nelson, is reportedly engaged to her agent who sued her last year.

As reported earlier, Neal Alpert sued Nelson in 2008 over profits of her book My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem.

According to Radar Online, Alpert found love with Nelson and dropped the lawsuit against her over the summer.

Alpert confirmed the wedding plans to Radar and the couple are looking for a venue to make their matrimony official.

“It’s going to be a nice-sized wedding, that’s for sure,” an insider told Radar.

Adding a twist to the story is the fact that Alpert is bisexual.

“When it comes to marriage it’s not about the sex, it’s about being with your best friend,” the insider explained about Alpert’s sexuality. “He has always been a gentleman and respectful and never sold her out for a penny, even when he had the chance.”

In related news, Eminem will be re-releasing his latest album Relapse under a new title, Relapse: Refill.

Refill, which hits stores on December 22, will fe ature seven new songs.
