Eminem: ‘Fame Makes Dating Difficult’

Posted by Adam

EminemRAPPER Eminem’s worldwide fame makes it difficult for him to date.

The hip-hop superstar -– who has been single since splitting from his ex-wife Kimberley Scott — wants to be in a relationship but struggles to meet people because of his celebrity status.

When asked if he dates, he said, “Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie — I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.”

It isn’t just fame which prevents Eminem from finding love, the Slim Shady hitmaker admitted he finds it difficult to trust new people.

“I have trust issues,” he said. “With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever.”

Eminem has battled an addiction to prescription drugs in the past and says he is now focusing on keeping himself healthy.

“Right now, that works for me,” he said. “I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.”

Eminem has a 14-year-old daughter Hailie, his child with Kimberley, 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.

    I thnk its awesome. This article proves to ALOT of people he isnt the “thug” many thinks he is. My own mom tried saying something negative about him when she heard one of his songs playing in my car. I stopped the cd and was saying the words as he sang them and explained to her what i got from the lyrics. In some of his songs he just speaks the truth and if people can’t handle the truth don’t listen to his music, but at the same time don’t look down on him for it either. There are some songs he sings i let my kids listen to but i tell them he is a musician he does this for a living, this dont mean run out and say it or do it. Like Cleaning out my closet, my kids have heard it and they even asked mommy does he not like his mommy. I todl them im sure he loves his mommy but this song to me was about him starting fresh and getting the things in his past off his chest and him realizing things more clearly. They said ok and left it at that.

    II feel Em on the whole dating idea. I don’t have his money, but I feel the same way he does about going out and meeting new people. It’s always in the back of my mind, what are their true intentions toward me for saying “Hello”. I have some trust issues myself. I’m also very private about my relationships and whomever I choose to be with. I’d rather stay in cook a nice dinner for two and lay on my bed and watch movies until myself and my significant other fall asleep. Or, I’d rather listen to my significant other tell me about his day. But I said all of that to say, I don’t have a love of my own to so that with. I spend all of my time with my 14yr old son Kewani, my mother Gloria, and my puppy Fearless. When I’m not doing that I sit in my bedroom and read or watch TVs by myself. So, Em my dear your money is of no consequence to me, I would love to be your friend one day, you can email me at I look forward to hearing from you one day.

    Why can’t you just…go out? I’m sure you could find a way to hide in plain view, be invisible, blend in? You can do it. ;)
