Eminem Leaked Kissing Video Revealed As Fake Ahead Of ‘River’ Music Video

The rapper was trolling us all along with that hotel room footage.

It turns out Eminem had many of us fooled with his apparent 'leaked' kissing video yesterday - it was all for promo.

The Detroit rapper was seen kissing a woman in a hotel room during footage that circulated online yesterday, prompting fans to debate whether or not it was real.

Here's Where You Can See Eminem On His UK 'Revival' Tour

If you suggested that the video was a promotional move for the upcoming music video release of his Ed Sheeran collaboration 'River', you were correct.

"Unhappy Valentine’s day!" Shady wrote on Twitter before revealing that the visuals for his chart-topping track drop tomorrow (Wednesday 14th February).

During the teaser, Eminem can be seen arguing with the woman from the leaked video over a pregnancy test. Fans have identified her as Sarah Ashley Toups, an actress who most famously appeared in movie ‘Lethal Weapon’.

The teaser also includes one-on-one interviews with the rapper and his collaborator Ed Sheeran, who discuss "what love means" to them.

"My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel." Eminem states as he stares into the camera.

You may note that Eminem has a history of carefully arranged promotional campaigns, following his cryptic ‘Revival’ drug adverts ahead of last year's album of the same name.

Check out the trailer for 'River' above.
