Eminem has issued a statement after a leaked verse of him siding with Chris Brown over Rihanna - after the former couple's infamous domestic violence incident.

In the song, which was recorded in 2009, Em rapped:

"I'm not playing, Rihanna, where'd you get the V.D. at?" and also, "Let me add my two cents/ Of course I side with Chris Brown/I'd beat a b*tch down, too if she gave my dick an itch now."

Em says he and Rihanna are good.

Dennis Dennehy, a spokesperson for Eminem, said to XXL, "This is a leak of something that's over 10 years old. After Eminem recorded it, he scrapped it, and rewrote it. Obviously he and Rihanna have a great relationship." 

Em and Rihanna have worked together several times - their most popular hits being "Love the Way You Lie," "The Monster," and "Numb." They have even been on tour together.
