The rapper urged fans to help him support and donate to the victims of last week's terror attack.

Eminem has helped raise almost £2 million in donations for the victims of the Manchester terror attack.

The notoriously elusive rapper, real name Marshall Mathers, reached out to fans over Twitter just days after the incident, which saw 22 people killed after an Ariana Grande concert.

Mathers posted a link to the Just Giving page, which was set up by the Manchester Evening News and the British Red Cross to help the families of the victims.

The 'Lose Yourself' rapper joins the likes of Justin Timberlake, Tom Hardy and other Hollywood stars who reached out to their followers in the wake of the attack.

The former NSYNC member sent his thoughts and prayers to the victims before posting the link to the Just Giving page.

In response to the attack, Ariana Grande announced her 'One Love' benefit concert, which will take place at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford Cricket ground on 4th June. 

All proceeds from the event will go to the victims and families affected by the attack.

Included in the star-studded lineup are Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Niall Horan and Usher.

The Black Eyed Peas also recently announced their involvement in the event, which is set be broadcast live on TV and radio.
