Dr. Dre is in the hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm.
According to TMZ, the hip-hop mogul had the aneurysm on Monday (Jan. 4) and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was taken directly to ICU, where he remains as of Tuesday.
The 55-year-old producer is reportedly in “stable and lucid” condition. Doctors don’t know what caused the bleeding and are performing a series of tests.
Dre is in the middle of a contentious divorce with his estranged wife. Nicole Young is seeking $2 million a month in temporary spousal support and $5 million for attorney fees. She wants a judge to reject the prenuptial agreement she signed in 1996, claiming Dre ripped it up early on in their marriage.
A court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in L.A. Given Dre’s hospitalization, the judge will likely delay it.
UPDATE: LL Cool J has shared an update on Dr. Dre’s condition, revealing that he is on the road to recovery. “Dre is recovering nicely,” tweeted LL.
