Magazine claims Eminem's "fat pic" wasn't legit!
Everyone was wondering what's going on with Eminem since he suffered a recent heath scare and hasn't been photographed in over a year. He was hospitalized over the holidays in Detroit with pneumonia and heart problems. Sources say Eminem weighs over 200 pounds, which is borderline obese for his height.
50 Cent says he's doing OK, and that reports of his poor health are exaggerated. According to Fiddy, "I got a chance to see him a few weeks ago and people think he is in a worse state than he actually is."
Also, gossip magazine In Touch recently posted a retraction of sorts regarding Eminem's recent "fat picture"
"We published what we thought was one of the first pictures of Eminem looking heavy. The National Enquirer labeled the photo "Now" and included no disclaimer that it was a photo reproduction. It was actually a picture from a series taken in March, 2006 and was Photoshopped by the Enquirer to make Eminem's face look fat. We were not aware that the image was altered until commentors pointed it out to us. Eminem's grandmother dished to the press the Enquirer that he's stressed from his two failed marriages to ex-wife Kim and wanted to create a stable home life for his daughter, Hailie, 12. Eminen is said to be binging on take out food and overeating at chain restaurants."
