Headlines - Celebrity 10/09/2020

Eminem came face-to-face with an intruder in his home at around 4am on April 5 (local time) after 27-year-old  Matthew Hughes allegedly snuck past security and broke a window to gain entry. 

According to the Detroit Free Press, the police officer who responded to the scene testified that Hughes had told Eminem that he was there to kill him when asked by the rapper why he was in his house. 

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, reportedly discovered the stranger in his living room after at first believing it was his nephew.

The Grammy winner was not hurt during the break in, and was said to have escorted Hughes out of the house. The alleged intruder reportedly did not have a weapon, and police officer Adam Hackstock testified that he found Hughes in a physical altercation with a security guard when he arrived at the address.  

Shortly after the incident, TMZ released a security video taken in 2019 that they said showed Hughes ringing the doorbell in the early hours of the morning at a house previously owned by Eminem - allegedly showing that he had been trying to track the hip-hop artist down for some time. 

Hughes has been in custody since the incident, charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property.
