Global Reactions Trail Dr Dre’s Close Shave With Death
Music mogul, Dr Dre says he “will be back soon” after he was rushed to the intensive care unit (ICU) of a Los Angeles hospital following a brain aneurysm on Tuesday night.
The 55-year-old legendary hip-hop figure was first taken by ambulance to the Cedars Sinai Medical Center on Monday night.
Doctors reportedly ran several tests to discover what caused the aneurysm.
A brain aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain. A brain aneurysm can leak or rupture, causing bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke).
Dr Dre, who will be 56 on February 18, is in the middle of a messy divorce with his wife Nicole Young.
Taking to social media Tuesday night, he wrote, “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!!”
Meanwhile, his condition has generated worldwide reaction, especially on Twitter, where “Dr Dre” was the number one trending topic as of 6:30 am on Wednesday Nigerian Tune.
