Eminem strangles girlfriend and kills himself in shocking video


Controversial rap star Eminem has taken his art to a new level.

In a shocking new music video he murders his girlfriend before shooting himself in the head.

The graphic footage shows the star strangling his girlfriend to death after he discovers she has been cheating on him and then turning the gun on himself.

The track Space Bound from his smash hit Recovery album also features extremely violent lyrics. He raps: ‘I'm trying to stop you from breathing, I put both hands on your throat, I sit on top of you squeezing.’

‘Tears stream down both of my cheeks, then I let you just go and just give. And before I put that gun to my temple I told you this.’

At the end of the video the sequence of events rewinds leaving the impression that he has just imaged the horrific scenario.

In a previous video for Stan, Eminem (38) showed an obsessed fan killing himself and his pregnant girlfriend by driving off a cliff in his car. He is famous for using different personalities and guises in his songs to deal with different subjects.

The Detroit-born star has also had famous rows with the late Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey and Limp Bizkit.
