Eminem Confronts Home Intruder As His Security Slept


A 26-year-old man by the name of Matthew David Hughes reportedly broke into Eminem’s Michigan home on April 6, using a paving stone to smash out a kitchen window. TMZ reports the break-in occurred around 4 a.m. local time while Em’s security team slept.

As a result, Shady came face-to-face with Hughes who’d managed to get into the living room. Although an alarm had gone off, it was Em yelling for security that ultimately woke them up. They rushed in and subdued Hughes until police arrived. TMZ’s sources told that the security team was in front of the property and the intruder snuck through the back.

Police believe Hughes wasn’t there to steal anything, rather he wanted a chance to talk to the Detroit-bred rap god. Considering Em has been quarantined at home like the rest of the world, there was obviously a good chance he’d be home.
