Eminem does not have HIV.
In 2007, Eminem weighed close to 230 pounds. The reason, he said in an interview, was because he'd been eating badly in an attempt to soothe the stomach problems caused by his addiction to painkillers; Vicodin and the Valium he’d been taking for years.
As well as exercise, Eminem has previously claimed that his friendship with Elton John was important in the process of overcoming the rapper’s drug addiction. As per The Guardian, after his near-fatal methadone overdose, Eminem rang up John, who had himself attended rehab in 1990.
