Eminem has been hit with a lawsuit by his aunt and uncle in a wrangle over cash they claim the hip-hop star promise them.

JACK and BETTI SCHMITT claim that they sold their Missouri home because the WITHOUT ME rapper wanted to maintain family ties. The lawsuit says that Eminem built the Schmitt's a home and promised to pay them $100,000 (GBP55,000) per year.

The lawsuit further states that Grammy Award-winner refuses to put the deeds in the Schmitt's name and that he has fallen short on his promise to pay them the promised income.

The Schmitts are seeking at least $25,000 (GBP13,800), according to Allhiphop.com.

The lawsuit is the latest family spat for Eminem, real name MARSHALL MATHERS III, whose mother DEBBIE sued him for criticising her on one of his tracks.
