Rap icon hospitalized in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES – Hip hop mogul Dr. Dre is hospitalized at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after suffering a brain aneurysm, according to a TMZ report.

The report stated the 55-year-old suffered the aneurysm on Monday and was taken to the hospital in Los Angeles, where he remains as of Tuesday night. He is “stable and lucid,” the report said, although doctors are not sure what caused the bleeding and are conducting tests.

Dr. Dre (born Andre Romelle Young) is in the middle of a separation from his wife, Nicole Young, who filed for divorce last year after more than 20 years of marriage. Young cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

The couple has two adult children, 23-year-old son Truice and 19-year-old daughter Truly.

Dr. Dre has four children from previous relationships.
