Eminem gets weekly phone calls from Elton John to check up on his recovery

HollywoodNews.com: Eminem dropped off the radar for a few years as he battled drug addiction. However, with his latest album, “Recovery,” he’s using the songs as a way of therapy.

In a recent interview with Spin, he admits why he and Elton John have such a close connection. He says, “Elton John calls me once a week. He used to tell me stuff like, ‘You’re going to start seeing certain things you’ve been overlooking’. And it came true. I’d walk around like, ‘Damn, that tree does look crazy, look at all those leaves!’ Things I didn’t notice when I was f**ked up.”

Eminem admits that when he finally realized he had a problem and wanted to get sober, he phoned John to speak to him about it. He adds, “He’s somebody who’s in the business and can identify and relate to the lifestyle and how hectic things can be. He understands… the pressure and any other reasons that you want to come up with for doing drugs.”

Elton beat alcohol and cocaine addiction early in his career.
