Eminem has revealed he doesn’t go out on dates because he is too famous and finds it difficult to trust people.

The hip-hop superstar, who has been single since splitting from wife Kimberley Scott, wants to be in a relationship but struggles to meet people because of his celebrity status, reports

Asked if he goes out for dates, he said, “Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie - I just can’t.

Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.”

And it isn’t just fame which prevents Eminem from finding love... “I have trust issues.

With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever,” he explained.
