Eminem to wed ex-wife

But he may be retiring for good

Eminem has revealed that he is back together with his ex-wife Kimberley Mathers and is considering remarrying her.

The pair married in 1999 but their divorce in 2001 followed a dispute over child support for their daughter Hailie.

However the rapper has now told Detroit radio station WKQI-FM, “We have reconciled and are probably going to remarry”.

Eminem has also said that he is still considering retiring from music, following his time in hospital for drug dependency. He pulled out of his European tour during the summer citing exhaustion.

Days later, the star checked into a hospital where he was treated for addiction to sleep medication.

According to BBC News, the rapper said: “When I went into rehab, I kind of went into it with the notion of ‘I’m gonna get clean, I’m gonna get off this stuff before it gets too out of hand.”

Despite playing down rumours of retirement at the time, saying instead he might take an extended break, Eminem has now revealed: “I’m at a point in my life right now where I feel like I don’t know where my career is going.”

Speaking about his current greatest hits package ‘Curtain Call’, he said: “This is the reason that we called it ‘Curtain Call’, because this could be the final thing. We don’t know.”
