Now we know why she's really writing that book!
Sources close to Debbie Nelson, Eminem's mother, reveal to PerezHilton.com that she is writing a book about her famous son because she needs money to pay medical bills.
"She's dying of stage 4 breast cancer," a family insider tells us. "She needs the money to pay medical bills and he wont talk to her so thats her open letter to him."
