Dr. Dre’s Out Of ICU

According to the latest reports, the Doc was able to leave the hospital and return home Friday on his road to recovery. However, Dre’s still not in the full clear just yet and will still require medical attention with 24/7 monitoring for the next few weeks as a precaution.

Our sources tell us Dre was in ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. until Wednesday, when he was then moved to a private room at the hospital. Although he’s been released, we’re told doctors still don’t know what triggered the brain bleed — and that’s part of the reason for the at-home care. Our sources told us Dre’s doctors cautiously informed his family a “bad outcome” did not appear to be on the horizon. (TMZ)

Dr. Dre Hasn’t Been Released Yet From ICU

The initial panic among the public seemed to settle after Dr. Dre gave a positive update on his condition, but the iconic producer still wasn’t out of the woods a week after his hospitalization.

Sources connected to Dre with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Dre’s where he’s been since last Monday — in ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. Our sources say doctors continue to do a battery of tests to get to the root problem. Doctors also want him in ICU in case, God forbid, he suffers another aneurysm … if that happens, time would be of the essence. (TMZ)

The Doc Agrees To Pay $2 Million In Divorce Case

While he recovers, Dre is still embroiled in a nasty divorce proceeding with estranged wife Nicole Young. He has reportedly agreed to pay $2 million total in spousal support, although she’s seeking $2 million per month.

According to legal documents, the legendary rapper and his estranged wife, Nicole Young, have agreed she should be given the money to pay for living expenses for the next few months. The couple’s divorce was just heard in an L.A. courtroom with each side being represented by their respective lawyers, and the hearing was continued to allow Dre to recover from his medical condition.
