Eminem wanted to kill himself at the height of his addiction problems, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

The rapper — who is set to release his new album following a three-year-break from music — admits he briefly considered committing suicide while struggling with his alcohol and drug problems.

He told British TV talk-show host Jonathan Ross: “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,” he added. “I got sober but it was pretty rough. A couple of years were bad for me.”

The 36-year-old hip-hop star is thrilled with his new material and insists he is only addicted to work these days.

He said: “I almost feel like a little kid again with rap. Rap was my drug. It used to get me high and then it stopped getting me high. Then I had to resort to other things to make me feel that... now rap’s getting me high again.”
