Dr. Dre Released From Hospital After Brain Aneurysm
Dr. Dre is home after suffering a brain aneurysm.
The rap mogul was discharged from the hospital on Friday (Jan. 15), TMZ reports. While he recovers at home, he will be monitored by medical professionals 24/7 for the next few weeks to ensure he’s okay.
Ice-T also shared the good news on Twitter and revealed that he had a FaceTime call with Dre. “Update: Just FaceTimed with @drdre,” he tweeted. “He just made it home. Safe and looking good.”

Dre was rushed to the ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. on Jan. 4. He remained there until Wednesday (Jan. 13), when he was moved to a private room at the hospital. It’s unclear what triggered the bleeding so doctors still want to monitor him at home.
Doctors cautiously informed Dre’s family that a “bad outcome” is unlikely. Dre is fortunate as brain aneurysms result in death about half the time, according to TMZ. For those who survive, about two out of three suffer some sort of permanent neurological deficit.
Following his hospitalization last week, Dre shared an encouraging update with his Instagram followers. “I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon,” he wrote while thanking the medical staff at Cedars-Sinai.
