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!!"

Close friend and fellow N.W.A. founder Ice Cube shared his support via Instagram, writing, "Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr. Dre."

Last month Dr. Dre made an appearance on Eminem's surprise album Music to Be Murdered By - Side B.
