Two days after Eminem abruptly canceled his European tour, citing exhaustion and unspecified “other medical issues,” his spokesperson revealed that the rapper has been hospitalized for a sleep-medication dependency.
The 32-year-old MC’s label issued a statement confirming that he is receiving treatment.
“Marshall Mathers, a.k.a. Eminem, is in the hospital under doctors’ care,” Interscope Records said in the statement. “He’s being treated for dependency on sleep medication.” The label would not give any additional information about where he was being treated or how long he is expected to be hospitalized.

On Tuesday, Interscope announced that the 10-date European leg of the Anger Management 3 Tour â€â€? which was slated to run from a September 1 show in Hamburg, Germany, to the September 17 closer near Dublin, Ireland â€â€? had been called off (see “Eminem Cancels European Tour Due To Exhaustion” ) .

Those dates are not going to be rescheduled, though 50 Cent announced on Wednesday that he would continue with his own headlining shows in Europe with a different routing and the addition of Akon to the bill (see “50 Cent Touring Europe To Make Up For Anger Management 3 Cancellation” ) .
