Dre announced on Tuesday via social media that he’s “doing great and getting excellent care”. While he confirmed that he was being hospitalised, he did not name his medical condition. TMZ reported earlier in the day that the rap mogul had suffered a brain aneurysm, was “stable and lucid”, and was undergoing more tests.
Now, TMZ has reported that four men were spotted at Dre’s property allegedly “casing” the home. They were caught before they could enter the main residence, the website reported, citing law enforcement sources.
The men were reportedly arrested for alleged attempted burglary. Law enforcement told TMZ they believe the men saw news coverage of Dre’s hospitalisation and allegedly took it as “a window of opportunity”.
The Los Angeles Police Department told The Independent that four people were seen on Tuesday night “hiking over a hill attempting to enter a property”. The department wouldn’t confirm that the property belongs to Dre but named an area of Brentwood where Dre was reported to have purchased a home in 2014.
The four people “were confronted by private security and fled the location” before being pulled over and taken into custody, according to the LAPD. Police told ABC7 that nothing was taken.
News of the artist’s health troubles has been met with messages of support from Missy Elliott, Ice Cube, and many more.
The 55-year-old Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, shared on Instagram on Tuesday: “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. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
