A RING doorbell camera at Eminem’s mansion captured the moment a home invader lurked outside the rapper’s door before breaking in.
Matthew David Hughes, 27, can be seen wearing an Oakland University hoodie and pacing before he broke into Eminem’s home and stood over the sleeping “Lose Yourself” rapper before allegedly threatening to kill him in April.
The footage was released in Macomb County District Court as Hughes faces charges for home invasion and malicious destruction of property for using a brick to smash one of his windows.
Officer Adam Hackstock testified Wednesday that Eminem initially thought the intruder was his nephew but then asked Hughes why he was there.
“He was told by Mr. Hughes that he was there to kill him,” Hackstock testified.
But Hughes’ court appointed attorney Richard Glanda said his client denies physical contact between the two.
Court records show that the real-life Stan has been held on a $50,000 bail since his April 6 arrest and he is scheduled to appear in court again on Sept. 28.
Eminem, whose birth name is Marshall Mathers, depicted the tale of an obsessive fan who becomes a stalker and kills the rapper’s pregnant girlfriend after he does not respond to his fan mail in his hit 2000 song Stan.
The character of Stan has since been referenced in several of Eminem’s other songs and has become a self-given badge of honor in pop-culture for artists’ eager fans.
