Dr. Dre Recovering From Brain Aneurysm After Recent Hospitalization
The 55-year-old American rapper is not only an audio engineer and record producer but is also the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.
Stressful Legal Battle
The couple first got married in Hawaii in 1996, but after two and a half decades of marriage, the pair decided to call it quits citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Although the “Let Me Ride” artist has an estimated net worth of $800 million, it seems that a recently revealed prenup agreement might prevent her from receiving the nearly $2 million per month she is seeking in spousal support, in addition to her $5 million dollars of legal fees.
According to the divorce filing, Dre has agreed to pay an undisclosed amount of spousal support, but the distribution of property is still under debate.
The “I Need A Doctor” artist is currently “stable and lucid” but doctors have still yet to determine what caused the bleeding. After being admitted to the hospital on Monday, he was held overnight until Tuesday for observation and was released Wednesday morning.
Dre took to Instagram Wednesday morning to say that he was “doing great,” sharing, “Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
Many celebrities took to their own social media accounts to spread support for the rap mogul.
One of Dre’s collaborators, 50 Cent, shared a photo of the two in a tweet, saying, “get well dre, Man stress kills relax.” Snoop Dogg responded to the comment in all caps, with, “GET WELL DR DRE WE NEED U CUZ.”
What Is A Brain Aneurysm?
There are different types of brain aneurysms, but they usually develop from thinning artery walls. Although they can be found anywhere in the brain, they are most common in arteries at the base of the brain, where the sections of these vessels are weaker.
A sudden, severe headache is a sign to get immediate medical attention, but it can also be accompanied by a wide range of symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, stiff neck, blurred or double vision, sensitivity to light, confusion, or a drooping eyelid. Someone who is suffering from an aneurysm might have a seizure or lose consciousness.
If you or someone you love suddenly complains of a sudden, severe headache and has one or more of the above symptoms, make sure to seek medical help immediately.
