Earlier today, reports circulated about entertainment mogul Dr. Dre being hospitalized over brain aneurysm in California.
As reported by Spurzine, the music producer and entrepreneur was rushed to the hospital after he suffered a brain aneurysm that could have been fatal had it not been for the first aid team that managed the situation before he arrived to the hospital.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I am doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon,” Dr. Dre wrote in a post on his verified Instagram account. “Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
