During a preliminary hearing on Wednesday (September 10), a courtroom reporter revealed that Eminem told a responding officer that Hughes made it clear he was there to kill him, Complex reports. 

“Mr. Mathers (Eminem) said Matthew Hughes told him he was there to kill him,” journalist Nick Perreault tweeted.

According to Officer Adam Hackstock, Eminem told him that he escorted Hughes through multiple rooms inside his home to an exit. Hackstock testified that he saw a security guard “wrestling” with Hughes on the ground as he arrived on the scene.
