There is a popular question is whether Eminem is related to Jerry Mathers, who played the Beaver on the 70s TV show. It turns out that they are not related at all! There is a story of how this rumor came about in the first place.
Several people have reported that Eminem is related to Jerry Mathers, who played “The Beaver” on TV. The rumor began when an article in The Arizona Republic newspaper stated that the rapper had been contacted and was happy for the comparison. Eminem’s publicist has clarified, however, that he does not know where this story came from. There are no ties between them and it’s all just a coincidence.
There is no truth behind this rumor. Though there are plenty of similarities between the two men-they both grew up in Detroit, they’re from Michigan and they have similar-sounding names. Their lives couldn’t be any more different than each other!
This kind of rumor spread quickly, and it’s not hard to see why.
In trying to figure out how these two men are similar, you need only consider their shared profession. Both of them have successful careers in the entertainment industry as entertainers for children!

How Did Eminem and Jerry Mathers Meet?
Eminem and Jerry Mathers never met in person. The two of them have only been seen on television together before, but they were never actually there with each other.
It’s just not true that Eminem is related to this famous child actor-the truth is that it was all a coincidence!
Some newspapers and magazines published wrong information about them. Jerry Mathers has never played a role in Eminem’s life or his success.
Eminem is not related to Jerry Mathers, he just happens to share the same profession and they both have enjoyed great fame for it!
With all of this said, I hope you can see how ridiculous these rumors are! It would be amazing if there was some connection between these two men who have so much talent together. But unfortunately, we will never know.
All we do know is that they’re total opposites when it comes down to their personalities. So please don’t believe everything you read:)
