In April, Eminem – born Marshall Mathers – awakened to find Matthew Hughes, a stranger in his home, according to authorities. Hughes was charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property.
Police said he used a brick to break a window to enter the 47-year-old musician’s home outside of Detroit.
They also said that Hughes was unarmed and allegedly told Mathers that he was in the home to “kill him,” though Hughes’ attorney told Fox News that he denied saying as such.
Eminem reportedly detained an intruder who allegedly broke into his Detroit home after slipping past his gated residence in April.
Now, it has emerged that in June of 2019 Hughes was arrested for breaking into a home in Rochester Hills, Mich., the police department confirmed to Fox News on Thursday. That home was previously owned by Mathers but was not at the time of the incident, police confirmed.
In resurfaced video footage obtained by The Daily Mail, Hughes can be seen at the home seemingly ringing the doorbell before waiting outside. Mathers reportedly sold the home two years prior to Hughes’ visit.

Per the outlet, after being asked to leave, Hughes was found in the property’s gatehouse. He was arrested for breaking and entering and served 90 days in jail.
According to a TMZ report in May, citing police records, Hughes also reportedly went to another property in June.
Hughes has been in custody since allegedly invading Mathers’ home in April, according to the Detroit Free Press.
