Eminem Turning into Fat Elvis, Says Mom

Gone are the days of Eminem’s washboard stomach and joking around with Lindsay Lohan and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. The rapper has been living in a constant state of depression, cut off from human contact while he eats massive amounts of food. Reportedly well on his way to obesity at the rate he’s going, the 5 foot 7 rapper currently weighs in at approximately 203 pounds and was hospitalized over the Christmas holiday for possible heart problems as well as pneumonia. Suffering from insomnia, Eminem has taken to ordering in–mostly Mexican food and filet mignon–often paying for himself and his entire entourage.

His mother has expressed concern at his current physical state, likening him to the late Elvis Presley. “He’s let his blond hair grow out, so everything but the ends are dark, his face has broken out in pimples and he’s put on so much weight that he’s causing all sorts of other health problems for himself.” I don’t know, if this post has recent pictures, but he doesn’t look out of the ordinary to me. Either way, after the shooting of his best friend and the ups and downs of his insane relationship with on-again-off-again ex/wife Kim, it’s no surprise he’s not full of warm fuzzies. Unless warm fuzzies are a new thing they’re serving at Taco Bell.
