Eminem faced some tension as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of America. Rather than a dangerous virus, the rapper had to deal with a man who broke into his home. Matthew Hughes was sentenced in September to five years’ probation and time served (524 days) for breaking into the rapper’s Clinton Township, Michigan house.

The Oakland Press reports that Hughes was arrested as he entered different homes looking for Eminem in 2019, as well. The probation and time served sentence meant he was a free man from the day of his sentencing. Now, he’s going back to jail for violating the terms of his release.

Matthew Hughes assaulted a mall security officer in Taylor, Michigan. He then failed to show up for his September 30th probation check-in. He pleaded not guilty to the assault.

At the time he was arrested, Hughes was homeless. His attorney said he didn’t know where his client would be staying after the break-in at the Mathers residence. Now, he will have a warm bed in jail.

Fortunately, Eminem was not harmed in the break-in attempts. Matthew Hughes is being held in the county jail on $10,000 bond. He also owes about $2,000 to the district court because of another case.

The Detroit rapper is no stranger to stalkers. His hit single “Stan” was about an obsessed fan. This kind of behavior continues across all forms of media. WWE wrestler Seth Rollins was recently jumped on live television by a fan who believed the two were business partners. In reality, it was an imposter catfishing scheme.
