American rapper Dr. Dre has been hospitalized after suffering a brain aneurysm.
As reported by entertainment portal TMZ, the music mogul, whose real name is Andre Young, is currently in the intensive care unit of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering an aneurysm on Jan. 4.
"Our sources say the music mogul is stable and lucid, but doctors don't know what caused the bleeding and they are doing a battery of tests," it said.
In a Twitter post, fellow rapper LL Cool J shared an update on the status of Dre, saying that the 55-year-old musician "is recovering nicely."
