Eminem is one of the biggest names in the music industry. He’s also one of the richest celebrities in Hollywood. That doesn’t mean he likes mass media nitpicking over tiny details regarding his wealth.
According to old friend and collaborator Royde da 5’9, even Eminem doesn’t know how rich he is. He says the rapper seems to be a bit bothered at times with the media trying to expose his wealth.
“I’m friends with Eminem, right? Dr. Dre and Eminem are the richest people that I call friends. I’ve had countless conversations with Marshall about people posting his net worth and all of this type of stuff. Especially Forbes,” the “Fast Lane” rapper tells Kera Dangerous.
“Never has he received a phone call about the inner workings of his finances. They don’t do any due diligence. They look at stuff, and then they just round things off to the nearest number.
“It’s all just a bunch of assumptions based off public access to certain pieces of information. I don’t even think Marshall know what his net worth is. We don’t know shit like that.”
People are obsessed with celebrities, their lifestyle and their wealth. There’s no denying that. Mass media just capitalizes on their obsession to get views and ratings.
