Eminem reportedly came face-to-face with a home intruder, who managed to sneak their way into his Detroit property.
The rapper, 47, had been at home at the time of the incident, with TMZ reporting the intruder gained access to his pad from the back of the property, located in a gated community, while security were manning the front.
Police sources and sources connected to Eminem told the publication the break-in occurred earlier this month at around 4am.
It’s claimed the suspect, 26-year-old Matthew David Hughes, smashed the kitchen window with a paving stone and climbed his way inside.
It set off an alarm, reportedly waking Eminem who came face-to-face with the suspect in his living room. The suspect was detained and taken into custody.
He now faces charges of first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of a building and is being held on a $50,000 (£39.7k) at Macomb Country Jail.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Eminem’s reps for comment.
The reports come as Eminem has been speaking out about how he’s finding the coronavirus lockdown.
Pretty used to keeping a low-profile, the Lose Yourself hit-maker says he has always felt ‘quarantined by fame’, so lockdown is nothing new.
Speaking to Sway Calloway on Shade45, Em explained: ‘Fame has definitely over the years kinda already had me quarantined, but it’s the fact of knowing that you can’t really go out and we can’t move like how we normally move.
‘It’s not just the same thing for me every day that it always is. There’s something to be said about knowing that you can’t go out and do certain things.’
Wanting to help out during the pandemic, Eminem – real name Marshall Mathers – donated his famous Mom’s Spaghetti meals to healthcare workers in his home state of Michigan.
Appropriately labelled from his lyric in Lose Yourself, Eminem gave away cups of pasta to those helping in the fight against coronavirus on the frontline.
It came as reports revealed the US is now facing more than 1million confirmed cases of Covid-19 across the country, as worldwide figures for cases now sits at 3.2million.
The number of the deaths in the US has reached 67,000.
