April9On this day in 2002, Marshall Mathers (a.k.a., Eminem) agreed to pay $100,000, minus attorney’s fees, to John Guerra in the civil lawsuit over a June 2000 parking-lot scuffle at  Michigan nightclub, Hot Rock Sports Bar and Music Cafe, where Mathers allegedly hit Guerra over the head with an unloaded 9mm Smith & Wesson gun after witnessing his then-wife, Kim Scott Mathers kissing Guerra from his car.

Mathers was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed weapon. On top of the payment, Mathers would have to serve to years probation. Mathers would later reference the incident in his song ‘Sing For The Moment’, with the lyrics, “You’re full of shit too, Guerra / That was a fist that hit you.”
