Rapper/producer Dr. Dre was being treated at a Los Angeles hospital today after suffering a brain aneurysm, according to various reports.

The website TMZ broke the news, reporting that the 55-year-old musician and Beats Electronics founder suffered the aneurysm Monday and was
taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he remains in intensive care.

Various media reports indicated the rapper — whose real name is Andre Romelle Young — was considered to be stable. TMZ reported he was “lucid”
and doctors were performing a battery of test.


Fellow rapper/actor Ice Cube posted a photo of Dr. Dre on his Twitter page and wrote, “Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr. Dre.”

The rapper is in the midst of a divorce battle with his wife, Nicole.

A hearing on the case is scheduled for Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
