I need to keep working on myself for a while," said Eminem.
The "Walk On Water" singer was once married to Kim Mathers. After Eminem's 2000 concert, Mathers attempted suicide by slitting her wrists.
"I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years," Slim Shady, 38, said in reference to his dual addiction to prescription pills and alcohol.
"I have trust issues - with women, friends, whatever," he tells Rolling Stone in his November cover story.
"I've got a small circle of friends, and it's a lot of the same friends I've known forever.
"I kind of feel like I'm just now finding my footing, so I want to make sure that's secure before I go out and do anything else." "I need to keep working on myself for a while." Eminem (real name: Marshall Mathers) has also recently spoken out about being bullied as a child, often so badly that his mother sued the Detroit school system for failing to protect him.
The rapper outed De Angelo Bailey, the bully in question, in a 1999 song called "Brain Damage." In the interview, Eminem also comes clean about how he dealt with the pain of his father's absence growing up.
