50 Cent Laughs Off Eminem Weigh-Gain Stories

Posted on

50 Cent says don’t believe the hype about his pal, Eminem, allegedly gaining weight.

“Em is in shape right now,” 50 Cent tells MTV News. “He looks good. I seen him in Detroit. He’s gonna look real good when you see him return.”

Stories about Eminem’s health and physique have been circulating for months. The Detroit-based rapper (real name Marshall Mathers) has been virtually absent from the music scene for the last year.

In January, Eminem was hospitalized with pneumonia, and a report claimed that his weight had ballooned more than 200 lbs.

But 50 Cent says his old friend is doing fine. “The last time I seen him we played basketball together,” he told MTV. “He had a knee injury, so we chilled for a little bit.”
