Eminem in rehab with pill problem

Rauncy rapper Eminem has checked himself into a rehab center to treat an addiction to sleeping pills, his record label said yesterday.
"Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, is in the hospital under doctors' care," Interscope said in a statement. "He is being treated for dependency on sleep medication."

Eminem, 32, checked into the hospital on Tuesday, accompanied by two burly bodyguards, Star magazine reported.

"He looked really rough, weak and tired out," a source told Star.

An Interscope spokeswoman declined to name the sleeping medication involved.

It has been a rough month for Slim Shady, who on Tuesday canceled a 10-date European tour, citing "exhaustion, complicated by other medical issues."

Last week, his aunt and uncle were the latest family members to file suit against Eminem. Betty and Jack Schmitt claim the rapper is trying to evict them from a house he built for them and isn't paying them a promised annual $100,000 stipend.

His legal woes and a renewed relationship with his ex-wife, Kim Mathers, contributed to Eminem's troubles, family insiders told Star.

With a Vicodin tattoo on his left arm, the nine-time Grammy Award-winning rapper has deep roots to drug culture. "I take a couple uppers, I down a couple downers," he raps in one song, "Purple Pills." "But nothing compares to these blue and yellow purple pills."

actually sleeping pills can be very addictive, I know someone who was addicted to them and whose behavior became very violent and bizarre as a result

On one local station this was classified as "Breaking News" and had the first half hour of coverage on the evening news. So he's another musician with a drug issue; just because he's local doesn't mean we need to push it to the top of the broadcast.

I guess you could categorize Eminem as violent and bizarre at times

i will never understand these people who have so much and yet still choose to throw it away on drugs and alcohol. not that mr mathers here has even come close to hitting rock bottom, i'm just talking in general.

most of them say the same thing about the pressures of being famous, etc. i mean, go buy a private island, staff it, and take your family on vacation for two months or something.

and tell your aunt and uncle to piss off and get their own money.

Actually, I can see this addiction coming out of a desire for normalcy. I'd say at the beginning he was probably just trying to regulate his sleep and be on top of things for touring purposes rathern than using them for escape.
