50 Cent has blasted recent reports his pal, Eminem, has gained weight.
"Em is in shape right now," the 'In Da Club' star, 32, tells MTV. "He looks good. I seen him in Detroit. He's gonna look real good when you see him return."
Rumors about Eminem's health and weight have been raging for months. The Detroit-based rapper - real name Marshall Mathers - has been virtually absent from the music scene for the last year.
In January, the 'Stan' rapper, 35, was hospitalized with pneumonia, and a report claimed that his weight had ballooned to more than 200 lbs.
But 50, real name, Curtis James Jackson, insists his old friend is doing fine. "The last time I seen him we played basketball together," he said. "He had a knee injury, so we chilled for a little bit."
