In a federal court lawsuit, Harlene Stein alleges the rap star used a piece of one of her husband Ronald's compositions on "Guilty Conscience," a cut from the rapper's acclaimed 1999 debut "The Slim Shady LP."
Ronald Stein, who died in 1988, is not credited as the piece's composer, TheSmokingGun.com reported Tuesday.
While her lawsuit does not specify monetary damages, Stein could potentially see quite a windfall, since Eminem's first album sold nearly five million copies.
