Eminem Struggles W/Showing Love To His Daughters As They Get Older. Still Visits His Old Hood So He Won't Forget The Struggle

Eminem worries he will become an embarrassment to his daughters.

The 'We Made You' hitmaker - who raises his 14-year-old child Hailie, 17-year-old adopted niece Alaina and former wife Kim's seven-year-old girl Whitney - admits it is growing increasingly different to show his love for the trio as they get older.

He said: "It's a catch-22: I want to, as a father, express my love for my girls, but I don't want to go too far with it, where it becomes a hindrance in their lives. When they were younger... it was easier."

The 37-year-old star - whose records have infamously mocked other people in the public eye - has previously battled an addiction to prescription drugs and admits his problems started when he "ran out" of enemies to target.

He explained to Spin magazine: "I was trapped in my head. I'd spent most of my career going against the grain. Calling bulls**t. And suddenly, I started running out of enemies.

"I started to become that cliche - my own worst enemy."

The Detroit-born star also revealed he sometimes goes back to the poverty-stricken neighbourhood where he grew up to remind himself of how far he has come in life.

He said: "It may sound corny, but I'll go by and try to remember how things were when I was in those houses.

"I'll go back and remember, like, f**k, man, how life was back then. How much of a struggle it was. As time goes by, you might get content and forget things."
