Legendary rapper Dr Dre was recently rushed into hospital after he suffered a brain aneurysm but reports are now coming in that four men tried to break into his home while he was hospitalised at the time.
Dr Dre was rushed to the hospital from his Los Angeles home on Monday after suffering a brain aneurysm that nearly took his life. While at the hospital, it’s reported that four men attempted to break into his home in the Brentwood neighbourhood on Tuesday night.
However, the burglary attempt by the four men was a total failure which ended up with the cops arriving at the scene in time and taking them into custody.
Around 2 a.m, the morning after news had been reported about Dr Dre’s condition, the group of men attempted a robbery at the rapper’s property but they were stopped in time by the rapper’s security who confronted them and called the police.
Reports by Cinema Blend state that the Los Angeles law enforcement arrived at the scene and was involved in a “short chase” before the perpetrators were caught and arrested.
According to ABC 7, authorities initially believed that the burglars were targeting Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ home nearby, but investigators have now determined that it was specifically aimed at the hospitalized star.
Dr Dre (born Andre Romelle Young) is still recovering at the ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where medical professionals are determining the cause of his internal bleeding.
Following the news, Dr Dre took to social media last night to assure his family, friends and fans that he is “doing great and getting excellent care” from his medical team. He updated the public that he will be “home soon” following his ICU stay.
The robbers were by security and arrested by police before they could raid the house of Dr Dre
Dr Dre was born and raised in Los Angeles, California in the Compton area of the city. As told in 2015’s record-breaking and Oscar-nominated film Straight Outta Compton, the rap pioneer teamed up with Eazy-E, Ice Cube, the Arabian Prince, Yella, MC Ren and the D.O.C to form the N.W.A. in the ‘80s.
Their 1988 album, which the film was named after, began a new genre in hip-hop known as ‘gangsta rap’ and became the centre of a controversy that lead to the FBI sending a warning letter to their record label about their song “Fuck the Police.”
Dr Dre has six children and is currently in the middle of divorce proceedings with his wife of 24 years, Nicole Young. The divorce has been hard for the rapper as Nicole continues to make outlandish demands such as $2 million dollars from the rapper.
We hope he gets well soon.
