Dr. Dre in Intensive Care After Suffering Brain Aneurysm: Report

Dr. Dre is in the intensive care unit after suffering a brain aneurysm.

The rapper, 55, is hospitalized at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, TMZ reported Tuesday.

The musician was taken to the hospital by ambulance on Monday after suffering the aneurysm, according to the website.

Dre (born Andre Romelle Young) is in a stable and undergoing tests, the outlet reports.

Dre's rep did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

The star's medical emergency comes about six months after Nicole Young filed for divorce in June after 24 years of marriage. The former couple has gone back and forth about the validity of their prenuptial agreement.

The former couple tied the knot in May 1996 and share two children together: son Truice, 23, and 19-year-old daughter Truly.
