Born Andre Romelle Young, was said to be in stable condition on Tuesday.

Dr. Dre’s health scare came just one day before his estranged wife, Nicole Young, exposed the former couple’s extravagant monthly spending habits.

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!!”
