Legendary rapper and producer Dr. Dre has revealed he's "getting excellent care" after suffering a reported brain aneurysm.

Yesterday (5 January) TMZ reported that Dr. Dre was receiving treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering a brain aneurysm.

Dr. Dre seemed to confirm the reports in a new Instagram post uploaded last night, which saw him write, "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."

He added, "I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!"
