Behind every genius is a bit of madness, and Eminem showed that madness when he tried to commit suicide in 1996, after his then-wife, Kim Mathers, ended their relationship and refused to let Em see his child. It seems, too, to run in the family: his beloved uncle Ronnie (whose death is referenced in the song “Cleaning Out My Closet”) committed suicide when Em was still a teenager.

If you, or someone you know, is contemplating suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800)273-8255. The line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
