The threats follow the controversial rap star's appearance in the video for current single, 'Without Me', dressed as Osama Bin Laden and dancing like MC Hammer.
A source revealled to the paper that the video has offended members of the al-Qaida network and the subsequent threats have forced Eminem to take action.
"[He] has had no choice but to take the threat very seriously. He's hired more professional bodyguards to protect him and updated his home's security system.
"He's even consulted a specialist in counter-terrorism on what precautions to take."
Gee.. that sucks for him!
That's what happens when you make a mockery of someone like that.. you just DON'T!
