Just days after cancelling his European tour citing exhaustion and other medical issues, Eminem's record label has confirmed that he is in rehab.

Interscope Records spokesman Dennis Dennehy says the Grammy award-winning rapper is in the hospital under doctors' care.

"He is being treated for dependency on sleep medication."

No further details have been released.
