Dr. Dre is at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering a brain aneurysm.
Sources connected to Dre and with direct knowledge tell us, Dre suffered the aneurysm Monday and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars and was taken directly to ICU, where he remains.
The 55-year-old music mogul is stable and lucid, but doctors don't know what caused the bleeding and they are doing a battery of tests.
Most recently, Dre is 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.
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.
Following the news of Dr. Dre, social media posts from supporters of Dre began pouring onto our timelines, as everyone was wishing him a speedy recovery. But, not only were fans sending good vibes Dre’s way, his friends and collaborators in the music biz were, as well.
