The mother of rapper Eminem is suing him over the stories he told several magazines and a nationally syndicated radio program about his childhood.

Debbie Mathers-Briggs says her son implied she was an unstable, lawsuit-happy drug user who moved around aimlessly during the rapper's formative years. She is seeking at least $10 million in damages.

The lawsuit was filed Friday against Marshall Bruce Mathers III, the 26-year-old performer known as Eminem.

The lawsuit cites interviews published in Rolling Stone, Rap Pages and the Source and statements he made on "The Howard Stern Show."

Dennis Dennehy, the rapper's publicist, said he had not seen the lawsuit and could not comment.
