Eminem's reputation as a badboy rapper has been thrown into question after he was spotted indulging in lengthy spa treatments on a recent visit to London.

The controversial STAN star, 31, enjoyed luxurious pampering at London's Dorchester Hotel where he was staying following his gig at the capital's Shepherd's Bush Empire on 8 April (04).

And the hip-hop star caused much amusement among his fellow spa guests, because he was surrounded by four muscle-bound minders during his treatments.

A source says, "Eminem acted like royalty. It's an ultra-discreet spa with lovely staff but he really gave it the big one.

"They (minders) stood guard outside the treatment rooms.

"What did he think was going to happen? That someone would burst in and laugh at him?"
