Dr. Dre still in ICU one week after brain aneurysm

A week after his brain aneurysm, Dr. Dre is still in the ICU.

As reported by theGrio, on Jan. 4, the hip-hop icon, born Andre Romelle Young, suffered a brain aneurysm and was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Shortly after the news broke, it was reported that the rapper was “stable and lucid,” but remains in the ICU, as doctors try to “figure out what happened.”

According to TMZ, Dre is undergoing multiple tests as the team in the ICU tries to get to the bottom of the aneurysm. Per TMZ’s sources, “Doctors continue to do a battery of tests to get to the root problem. Doctors also want him in ICU in case, God forbid, he suffers another aneurysm…if that happens, time would be of the essence.”

Last week, Dre posted on Instagram to thank his fans and loved ones as he embarked on his path to recovery. He wrote: “Thanks to my family, friends, and fans for their interest and well wishes. I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
