Eminem: Slim-Fast Shady
This article is from 2008.
Eminem is set to become an ambassador for Slim-Fast.
The rap star, famously known as 'Slim Shady', has piled on weight recently and allegedly tops the scales at over 200lbs.
He has now been approached by the weight loss food and drink manufacturer, famous for its diet shakes, to try out their products and become one of their "success stories".
A spokesperson for Slim-Fast said: "Slim-Fast is a programme that can really work for someone like Eminem. It's a do-able and flexible approach.
"Slim-Fast would love to offer Eminem products and assistance to help him become a potential Slim-Fast success story."
Although rumours are rife the 'Just Lose It' rapper has ballooned, his friend Trick Trick insists his size has been exaggerated and he is far from obese.
Rapper Trick Trick said: "Em' has just picked up some weight, that's it.
"He's nowhere near 250 pounds or anything like that. He picked up a little weight. He ain't walking around obese or some s**t. He can still run two miles if you want him to and still out-box the majority of them. My man still gets down."
