PEOPLE MAGAZINE reports ELTON JOHN is helping EMINEM, who is battling a drug problem.
"I've been helping EMINEM over the last 18 months and he's doing brilliantly," JOHN said to the BRITISH PRESS ASSOCIATION. "Speaking to BBC Radio 5 in the U.K. on SATURDAY, writes PEOPLE, "SIR ELTON, 62, who has freely spoken about his own past issues with substance abuse," said, "I'm there if people want my help. If people ask for help you tell them where to go but there's no point advising people if they don't want to do it."
EMINEM admitted in MAY that he'd suffered from drug addiction that led to him downing as many as 20 Vicodin, Ambien and Valium in a day. "The numbers got so high," he told VIBE MAGAZINE, "I don't even know what I was taking."
