Dr. Dre has suffered a brain aneurysm, according to multiple reports.
The 55-year-old music mogul was rushed Monday to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he remains “stable” and “lucid” as of Tuesday, TMZ reports.
Los Angeles Times journalist Richard Winton tweeted Tuesday, “Dr. Dre is in ICU at Cedars in LA after suspected brain aneurysm – developing story.”
“He is stable and the details arent clear,” he later added.
Dre is currently in the middle of a very contentious divorce with his estranged wife Nicole. As we reported, Nicole wants $2 million a month in temporary spousal support and $5 million for attorney fees, but Dre says he’s been paying all of her expenses so the $2 mil demand was outlandish. He also says the attorney’s fees are outrageous since her lawyers have only been working on the case for a few months.
And, as we reported, Nicole wants a judge to reject the prenuptial agreement she signed in 1996, claiming Dre ripped it up early on in the marriage. Dre strongly denies that.
There’s a hearing Wednesday in downtown L.A. on both issues. Obviously, Dre will not be attending and we’re assuming the judge will continue the matter.
Born Andre Romelle Young, Dr. Dre started his career as a member of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru before founding rap group N.W.A. He released his first solo album, “The Chronic,” in 1992. He later went on to focus on production, working with rappers including Snoop Dogg, 2Pac and Kendrick Lamar.
