Rapper Ice-T recently shared a piece of good news to fans about his long-time friend music executive Dr. Dre's present condition after his hospitalization.

More than a week after Beats Electronics founder Dr. Dre's hospitalization, rapper Ice-T, on January 12, shared an update on Twitter about his friend's health.

Ice-T is one of the many people who has wished for Dr. Dre's fast recovery after the latter suffered a brain aneurysm. Many fans were worried about the music mogul's situation.

It was a relief for Ice-T that he was able to talk to his fellow rapper. He assured fans that Dr. Dre is "doing good" and hopes he will be home soon. He added:

"But let’s keep him in our prayers. For a full recovery."

Many fans were pleased that Dr. Dre is recuperating. Another one expressed happiness that Dr. Dre, also known as Andre Romelle Young, is doing okay.


While other Twitter users wished Dr. Dre his quick recovery, one user commented that he admired Ice-T for being a good friend to the "No Diggity" singer.

TMZ earlier reported that Dr. Dre is still in the intensive care unit, a week after he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Dr. Dre, on January 6, posted on Instagram that he is "doing great" and is getting excellent care from his medical team. He wrote that he will be out of the hospital soon.



Doctors attending to the music mogul's health has yet to identify the cause of his brain aneurysm. His condition happened amid his ongoing divorce battle with estranged wife Nicole Young.

In court documents obtained by ET, Young claimed anew that her husband held a gun to her head twice, in 2000 and 2001. She also claimed the Aftermath Entertainment CEO physically abused her.

Just hours after the news of the rapper's condition, four persons attempted to rob his $50-million Brentwood Estate mansion.



Dr. Dre reportedly denied in past filings that he physically abused or threatened the safety of his longtime wife. However, Young asserted that the veteran rapper "blatantly lies." 

Because of the abuse she experienced in their marriage, Young is currently suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. The estranged pair were together for 24 years. 

Young, who shares two adult children with Dr. Dre, filed for divorce on June 29 last year. The 51-year-old doting mother had cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.



The new year didn't start well for Dr.Dre. Just hours after the news of the rapper's condition, four persons attempted to rob his $50-million Brentwood Estate mansion.

The Los Angeles Police Department noted that these burglars were arrested after the rapper's private security caught them in the middle of their crime. Several tools, including a crowbar, were discovered from the property.
