It is said that superstar rapper Emimem has been willingly receiving advice from an unlikely confidant but very famous Sir Elton John.

According to reports, Elton John shared with BBC radio, “I’ve been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he’s doing brilliantly,” It is said that in 2005 Eminem entered into rehab for an alleged addiction to sleeping aids that resulted in the rapper’s three year break. Even though Sir Elton did not give any details, Eminem has told Vibe magazine that it is no secret he was, indeed, battling drugs. He also said, “If I was to give you a number of Vicodin I would actually take in a day? Anywhere between 10 to 20. Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don’t even know what I was taking.” We wish you a very healthy recovery!

The legendary singer said, “I’m there if people want my help. If people ask for help you tell them where to go but there’s no point advising people if they don’t want to do it.” From the time of the 1980’s, Sir Elton John said that he had battled alcohol and drug addictions and has since been sober. He has been known to use his own experiences and has helped other celebrities like singer George Michael and the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
