NEW YORK – Raunchy rapper Eminem may be riding high on the charts and at the box office, but it looks as if an eBay auction failed to find a buyer for his boyhood home.
The two-story house, on Timken Street in Warren, Mich., initially reached $12 million, but plunged to $75,000 before bidding expired amid a slew of inflated offers by bogus buyers.
"It's a decent home," owner Roland Fraschetti told The Detroit News. "There's nothing wrong with it . . . Someone who buys it can say they have a home that was once attached to Eminem."
Fraschetti and a partner bought the 1,300-square-foot, 62-year-old house last June from Eminem's uncle for $45,000.
