Elton John Helping Eminem Kick Drug Addiction

Elton John has been helping his friend Eminem kick drugs. Read more of what Elton had to say about rapper Eminem below.

Sir Elton John talked with BBC Radio about aiding his friend Eminem kick his drug addiction.

“I’ve been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he’s doing brilliantly,” John, 62, told BBC Radio on Friday, without going into further detail.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, had entered rehab for his addiction to sleeping pills and prescription pain medication in 2005.  The rapper revealed to Vibe magazine that he would take “10 to 20″ Vicodin (painkiller) pills daily. “Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don’t even know what I taking,” he said.

Elton John had battled drug and alcohol abuse early in his career but has remained sober since the eighties.

“I’m there if people want my help,” he said in the BBC interview. “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.”

Eminem said in a recent interview: “[Elton] had a substance-abuse problem in the past. So when I first wanted to get sober, I called him, because he’s somebody in the business who can relate to the lifestyle and how hectic things can be. He understands the pressure and any other reasons that you wanna come up with for doing drugs.”

The musicians met and became friends in 2001 after performing Eminem’s hit song “Stan” at the Grammys.
