"Eminem Hospitalized With Pneumonia; Reportedly Weighs Over 200 Pounds

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

Eminem is recovering from a bout with pneumonia that sent him to the hospital.

"Over the holidays, Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, was under doctor's care at a Detroit-area hospital for complications due to pneumonia," the rapper's publicist, Dennis Dennehy, said Tuesday. "He has since been released and is doing well recovering at home."

TMZ.com reported that Eminem was rushed to the hospital over the holidays for a serious heart condition and severe pneumonia and now weighs in at 200 pounds.

The rapper, who often goes by the moniker "the real Slim Shady," talked to Complex magazine in 2006 about his lax position on fitness since 2005, citing it as the main cause for his weight gain.

"I went through a little slacking phase, but I just got back into my regimen last week. So, I eat some nachos, and drink a Mountain Dew, and then I go hit the gym 'cause I just know I (EXPLETIVE DELETED) up."

Eminem, 35, rose to stardom thanks to a number of best-selling CDs, personal lyrics and a starring role in the hit 2002 film "8 Mile."

He has won Grammys, including best rap album for "The Slim Shady LP," "The Marshall Mathers LP" and "The Eminem Show," as well as an Oscar for the song "Lose Yourself" from "8 Mile."
