Is Dr. Dre Sick: Dr. Dre will have center stage at the 2022 Super Bowl on February 13. At the Halftime Show, the rapper will be accompanied by some of his closest friends in the business, including Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar. It’s hard to think that only 13 months ago, Dre was hospitalized for nearly two weeks due to what seemed to be a brain aneurysm. Dre had a fortunate outcome following his scary medical crisis. Read on for more information:
What Happened To Dr. Dre?
TMZ said that Dr. Dre had a brain aneurysm on January 5, 2021, and that he was sent to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California (Jan. 4). He had recently been admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for further testing to discover the cause of the bleeding in his brain.
Dre used Instagram to reassure his followers that he was doing fine just one day after being admitted to the hospital. On January 5, 2021, he was also said to be in “stable” condition. Dr. Dre expressed gratitude to his “family, friends, and fans for their attention and well wishes.” I’m doing fantastic, thanks to God and my excellent medical staff. Soon, I will be able to leave the hospital and return home.
Thank you to all the excellent doctors and nurses at Cedars-Sinai. All our love, together forever! This upbeat update was a breath of fresh air for Dre’s loved ones.
On January 15, 2021, after spending the previous 11 days in the hospital, Dre was released. Recent FaceTime conversation with Dr. Dre. He arrived home really late. On January 15, Dre’s pal Ice-T tweeted that Dre was “safe and looking fantastic.” This was confirmed on January 16 by an attorney for Dre.
How Is Dr. Dre’s Health After His Brain Aneurysm?
Incredibly, Dr. Dre appeared to bounce back quickly. It wasn’t until June 2021 that he opened up to the media about his health; he reported to the Los Angeles Times that he was “feeling wonderful” barely five months after being hospitalized. He also took the opportunity to encourage his listeners to keep an eye on their health and schedule frequent doctor’s visits.
Dr. Dre said, “It’s pretty unusual; I’ve never experienced high blood pressure.” I’ve always been someone who prioritizes their health. However, I was utterly unprepared that Black males have a higher risk of hypertension than other guys. In any case, I’m looking out for number one. And I believe every Black man should do that to ensure his blood pressure is normal.
I’m extremely excited to share the stage with my friends for the #PepsiHalftime Show.
This will introduce the next saga of my career…

In any case, I’m moving on and looking forward to a long and fruitful life. What a great mood I have! Also, in May of 2021, Dre posted a picture of himself in the gym, shirtless, and displaying his impressive six-pack. He titled the physique image “My COVID body.” I’m going to start pulling myself together in a little while. In it with @WillSmith. Ok, here we go!!!!!
What Happened To Dr. Dre’s Wife?
Throughout this, Dre was divorcing his wife, Nicole Young. At the end of June 2020, just over six months before Dr. Dre’s hospitalization, Nicole filed for divorce from him. They were married for 24 years and had two children, both of whom are now adults (both of Dre’s children from prior relationships having died by 2008).
Since Dre and Nicole did not have a prenuptial agreement, their divorce proceeding soon descended into chaos (although the two disagreed about this matter). When Nicole filed for divorce in September 2020, she asked for spousal support of approximately $2 million per month, plus another $5 million to cover legal bills.
In July 2021, it was decided that Dre would pay Nicole spousal support for $3.5 million per year, or slightly less than $300,000 per month. Nicole said Dre threatened her with a gun on two separate occasions in her court filings (in 2000 and 2001). According to her, the rapper assaulted her during a fight in 2016. Dre, meanwhile, has called Nicole’s allegations that he “abused [or] threatened” her “blatant falsehoods.”
Dr. Dre and Nicole settled their divorce at year’s end of 2021, with Dr. Dre agreeing to pay Nicole $100 million. He handed her $50 million then, and another $50 million is due to her in December 2022. Dre’s net worth is close to $1 billion. Thus this is great news for him. Nicole initially denied that she and her husband had a prenup, but it was later established that such an agreement existed.
This meant she did not receive half of his assets, as she had requested. When the settlement was negotiated, the divorce between the exes had already been finalized. Needless to say, Dre dealt with a lot in 2021, but 2022 is already looking promising. The Halftime Show had a lot of people on the edge of their seats. When: Sunday, February 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
