He used to always cheat on my Mom and beat her

from Eminem (Ft. Dido) – Stan Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Another way in which Stan tries to relate to Em. Em’s dad was a bum, who abused Em’s mother Debbie, then left the family. Stan claims he was in a similar situation, and that might explain why he is so unstable.

Em has never met his father, and in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, he said he doesn’t ever want to. Em says he can’t understand how a man could leave his children the way his own father did.
