Dr. Dre Biography
The hip-hop world is holding its breath after learning that legendary rapper Dr. Dre, whose birth name is Andre Romelle Young, suffered a brain aneurysm, as TMZ first reported.
The 55-year-old hip-hop mogul was rushed to the hospital by ambulance on January 4 and taken directly to the ICU at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Dre is still in ICU as of Tuesday, January 5. As for his latest health update, sources told TMZ that he is “stable and lucid,” but doctors are not sure what caused the bleeding in the first place.
Doctors will continue to run a series of tests to try to find out what happened and if there are other possibly related health problems, TMZ reported.
UPDATE: On Tuesday night, Dre was able to update everyone on his health, announcing that he should be “coming home soon”, allowing all of his friends, family and fans the ability to breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Dre wrote: “Thank you to my family, friends and fans for your interest and well wishes. I am very well and receive excellent care from my medical team. I will be leaving the hospital and coming home soon. Greetings to all the great Cedars medical professionals. One Love!!”
Dre Is Scheduled to Appear in Court on Wednesday
The “What’s the Difference” rapper is currently in the middle of a highly publicized and nasty divorce from his wife of 24 years, Nicole Young. The couple retired in June 2020, according to Los Angeles County court documents cited by The Blast. Young filed on June 29 and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason.
She is requesting spousal support from Dre, whose estimated net worth is around $ 800 million, TMZ reported. Dre and Young share two grown children, Truice and Truly. Due to the rapper’s current health condition, the audience in downtown Los Angeles is likely to be postponed to a later date.
Young asks the judge to reject the couple’s prenup, which she signed in 1996, but claims that Dre broke up early in their marriage. The Beats by Dre co-founder, however, denies that he did such a thing. Young is asking for $ 2 million a month in temporary spousal support and $ 5 million for attorneys’ fees, according to the outlet.
