Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has turned down rapper Eminem's offer to collaborate with him for his new album Relapse.

Eminem, who has mocked Winehouse in his upcoming single We made you, was hoping she would be able to help deliver him another hit like 2000's Stan, on which he collaborated with British pop star Dido, reports contactmusic.com.

But Winehouse passed up the chance to work with the rapper on his forthcoming comeback record Relapse, according to British newspaper The Sun.

"Eminem has followed Amy's career closely. They have both had drug addiction issues and he empathises with her and hoped to feature her on (comeback album) Relapse. His idea was to make a track as magical as Stan. But unfortunately Amy declined," a source said.

"He understands that recently she hasn't been in a state to focus on music because of her tumultuous private life but he hopes they will get together on a future project," added the source.
