Dr. Dre is reportedly in the intensive care unit after suffering a brain aneurysm on Monday.

According to TMZ, the music mogul, 55, was rushed to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles and taken directly to the ICU, where he remains as of today.

Sources have told the publication that Dr. Dre, born Andre Romelle Young, is stable and lucid. Doctors are still trying to figure out what exactly caused the sudden bleeding.

Musicians and celebrities, including Missy Elliott, have since sent their love to Dre over Twitter.


The rapper is currently undergoing a very public divorce from estranged wife, Nicole Young.

Per court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Young is seeking USD$1,936,399 (AUD$2.5 million) in monthly spousal support.

Dre, however, believes Young’s proposed sum is too excessive.

“I have made it very clear to her [Young] by my words and actions that I want our dissolution to be amicable and for her to feel comfortable and respected,” Dre said in a statement obtained by Entertainment Tonight.

Young filed for divorce in June of last year after 24 years of marriage. They share two children together: Truice, 24, and Truly, 20.

The rapper co-founded Beats Electronics in 2006.
