Deadline Detroit | Homeless man pleads for breaking into Eminem’s Macomb home


Eminem and Matthew Hughes

A homeless man obsessed with Eminem will be sentenced to time served and five years probation after pleading uncontested Thursday to a second-degree home invasion for breaking into the rapper’s Clinton Township home in April 2020 , The Macomb Daily reports in a publication reserved for subscribers.

“No dispute” means that you admit the facts of the case but do not plead guilty.

Matthew Hughes, 28, has been in county jail since the burglary and will be released after being sentenced on September 22. He will have served 17 months.

In exchange for his plea, authorities dismiss charges of first-degree home invasion, malicious destruction of property between $1,000 and $20,000, and assault on a prison employee.

Hughes broke into Eminem’s Manchester Estates home at Heydenreich Road and Cass Avenue around 4am last year, just weeks after the pandemic began. He smashed a kitchen door window with a brick and was arrested after Eminem convinced him to leave.

In June 2019, he was arrested for illegally entering a Rochester Hills home that Eminem had sold two years prior. He told the owners he was looking for the rapper. He was sentenced to 90 days in prison.
