Eminem Says Elton John Helped Him With His Drug Addiction

Elton John and Eminem share the stage following their duet at the 43rd annual Grammy Awards
Even from when “Slim Shady” first hit the hip-hop scene, he was never shy about talking about his drug use; or his mother’s for that matter. During interviews with magazines like “XXL” and “Vibe”, Eminem spoke freely about his addiction to several drugs. And most recently, during an interview with Detroit’s “Metro Times”, Eminem revealed that pop legend, Elton John helped him cope during his drug rehabilitation. 

“Me and him have had similar lives and stuff,” Eminem stated. “So I reached out to him and told him, ‘Look, I’m going through a problem, and I need your advice.’ I also talked to T.I. a lot and, you know, we exchange advice.” Can you imagine that think-tank?

Eminem went on to say that Elton John and him had become very good friends  and he has turned to him several times for help with his career as well as his substance abuse problems. Eminem reached out to Elton John for advice most recently over his addiction to painkillers after a near-fatal methadone overdose.
