American rapper, Dr Dre recently revealed that he is hospitalized and in ICU after experiencing and suffering a brain aneurysm.
Taking to his Instagram account to let everyone know that he is on the road to recovery, Dr Dre wrote: “Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,” he shared on Tuesday, Jan. 5, adding a throwback photo of himself at a mixing board. “I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
The 50-year-old hip-hop legend suffered the aneurysm on Monday the 4th of January 2021, and remains in the ICU at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, the “California Love” performer is stable, but doctors are uncertain of what caused the brain injury and are administering numerous tests.
This comes at a difficult time in the musician’s life. Wife Nicole Young filed for divorce in July following 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The pair are parents to two adult children, son Truice and daughter Truly. A hearing pertaining to spousal support and their prenuptial agreement had been set for Wednesday in L.A. That hearing is still scheduled to happen as planned but is likely to be continued.
A number of the star’s famous friends and collaborators shared their support on social media. “Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr. Dre,” Ice Cube tweeted. Ice Cube’s son, actor O’Shea Jackson Jr., appeared to confirm that Dre was on the path to recovery. “Got word,” he tweeted. “It’s still Dre Day. Still keep the family in your prayers. You never know yall.” Snoop Dogg shared footage to Instagram of himself performing with Dr. Dre, adding the caption, “GET WELL DR DRE WE NEED U CUZ.”
