Eminem considers marrying ex-wife
Eminem released a greatest hits album, Curtain Call, on Tuesday
Rap star Eminem has announced he is back with his ex-wife Kimberly Mathers and considering remarriage.

"We have reconciled and are probably going to remarry," Eminem told Detroit radio station WKQI-FM.

The pair married in 1999. Their divorce in 2001 followed a bitter dispute over child support for daughter Hailie.

The singer, real name Marshall Mathers III, also admitted that he is still considering retirement, following a spell in hospital for drug dependency.

The rapper, 33, quit his European tour in August citing exhaustion, days before checking into a hospital where he was treated for addiction to sleep medication.

Curtain call

At the time, he played down reports he was planning to retire from the music business but said he might take an extended break.

"When I went into rehab, I kind of went into it with the notion of 'I'm gonna get clean, I'm gonna get off this stuff before it gets too out of hand,'" he told US radio.

"I'm at a point in my life right now where I feel like I don't know where my career is going," said Eminem, who released a greatest hits album, Curtain Call, on Tuesday.

"This is the reason that we called it 'Curtain Call', because this could be the final thing. We don't know."
