London: Popular rapper Eminem couldn`t concentrate during his first visit to a rehabilitation centre as he was constantly pestered by fans for autographs.

The first time I went into rehab was in Brighton, Michigan. The second time I just went to a regular hospital. I detoxed in hospital and then came home. I couldn`t go back to rehab. I felt like I was Bugs Bunny in rehab. When Bugs Bunny walks into rehab, people are going to turn and look. People at rehab were stealing my hats and pens and notebooks and asking for autographs. I couldn`t concentrate on my problem," Eminem was quoted as saying by contactmusic.com.

The hip-hop star was admitted to a treatment centre in Michigan in 2005 when he was at the height of his prescription drug problems. But he failed to get rid of his addiction and was forced to return to a hospital where he finally detoxed.
