Eminem has revealed his soft side – by falling for a tiny Chihuahua.
The foul-mouthed rapper reportedly bought the three-month-old puppy – who he has named Smoky – last week, and already loves playing with him and walking him.
A source has revealed the rapper, real name Marshal Mathers, is smitten with his miniature pet. The insider told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: â€œMarshall has been having great fun with his puppy and loves taking him for walks.
â€œNow he can’t remember what life was like before he got the poochâ€
Last month the hip-hop star launched a multi-million dollar lawsuit to stop mobile phone companies using his songs as ringtones. Lawyers representing the controversial rapper filed writs in a Detroit court against five firms to prevent them earning money from his music without license.
As well as ringtones, Eminem is also planning to sue karaoke firms who reproduce any of his back catalogue – which includes the worldwide hits â€˜Stan’, â€˜Just Lose It’ and â€˜Mosh’ – without permission and without paying him royalties.
His spokesman said: â€œThis is a big business. We’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars a year hereâ€
