Eminem admits to having contemplated suicide

Eminem has admitted that he nearly took his own life at the height of his addiction problems.

The rapper, who releases his new album, 'Relapse', says that he almost committed suicide after drug and alcohol dependency ruined his personal life.

"I just wasn't taking care of myself. At times I wanted to just give it up. I was in a dark place. I wanted to pull back from the spotlight to reassess my whole career. I got sober but it was pretty rough. A couple of years were bad for me."
