Eminem “scared himself” with the extent of his drug addiction.
The rapper admits he only gave up taking illegal substances for good after he relapsed just weeks after an almost fatal drug-taking session in late 2007.
“I had overdosed in 2007, like right around Christmas in 2007. I pretty much almost died. You know, I pulled through and went home and relapsed less than a month later and I literally shot back up to the amount of pills I was taking, shot right back up to where I overdosed. Kind of I scared myself, like, ‘Yo! I need to, I need help. Like I can’t beat this on my own.’ The things I was putting in my body, my tolerance got so high. I got to the point where I couldn’t even count how many pills I was taking.”
The hip-hop superstar has a 14-year-old daughter Hailie, his child with ex-wife Kimberley Scott, and two adopted girls Alaina, the child of Kimberley’s sister, and Whitney - Kimberley’s daughter from a previous relationship. He is also the legal guardian of his younger half-brother Nathan.

The musician, who is the , was hospitalized last December after taking an overdose of painkillers, but says she was “panicking” over the end of her relationship with her first love, Jimmy Riot.
“I wasn’t trying to hurt myself, I wasn’t trying to kill myself. I was panicked, I was not thinking clearly at all. I was in so much pain and I just wanted to numb it. He helped me get my band together, my career, my sexuality as a woman, I associated with him. So when he left I didn’t know what I was supposed to do. I didn’t know who I was. It took me so much work, heavy, heavy work to get to the point where I could feel OK on my own.”
Alexa, 24, also spoke of her desire for people to not compare her with her famous parents and judge her music on its own merits: “Everybody gets it - I’m their daughter. But I have my own voice, I have my own sound and I have a big personality. You might want to take a listen.”
Just when she was keeping herself free of legal troubles, Britney Spears has been accused of sexually harassing her bodyguard.
Former policeman Fernando Flores, 29, has quit his job as the pop superstar’s head bodyguard after the mother-of-two allegedly paraded around naked in front of him on numerous occasions. Flores is now reportedly considering a sexual harassment lawsuit against the “Piece of Me” singer.
“She was always giving him the come on and he felt if he didn’t reciprocate he could lose his job. He finally handed in his notice last week and is considering legal action. Working for Britney is tough. She’s a nightmare to deal with and her emotions are totally out of control. She runs round the house naked and yelling at staff,” a friend of Flores said.
Britney Spears is “unlikely” to regain control of her affairs in the near future.
The 28-year-old singer, whose father Jamie Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet were made co-conservators of her personal and professional affairs after her public breakdown in 2008, is due to have a conservatorship status hearing today, but is not expected that the judge will change the ruling.
“Britney won’t be in court for the hearing. It seems highly unlikely that the conservatorship will end by the end of summer. Britney’s just not ready, yet. She has her good days and bad days. Britney has complex issues on a personal and professional level, and that is the reason the conservatorship is still in place,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
The “Piece of Me” singer will only be permitted to regain control of her vast fortune if Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz has enough evidence to justify ending the conservatorship. It had previously been claimed Britney feels “completely out of it” because her father is so controlling.
“She is so out of it she just doesn’t care anymore. She just does what she’s told and is totally in her world. She’ll even call people at all hours of night for a general conversation and acts like it’s the middle of the day or something,” a source said.
“It’s so… The photos are so.. I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped. A lot of the time I can’t handle it. I never expected that this would be my life.”
