Just hours after Dr. Dre was rushed to intensive care over a brain aneurysm, the music mogul’s hilltop Los Angeles home was the target of an attempted burglary, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
LAPD officer Lizeth Lomeli confirmed that officers responded to a report of an attempted burglary in which suspects were seen “coming over a hill” near the 12700 block of Charon Road in the hills above Brentwood.
After a “short pursuit,” Lomeli said, four suspects were arrested.
An investigation is ongoing.
A public trail runs to the immediate east of homes on this block, according to Google Maps, which shows hilltop mansions with large pools and tennis courts.
In 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported that Dre paid $40 million for a Brentwood mansion owned by Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.
Dr. Dre rushed to ICU with brain aneurysm
The attempted break-in happened at roughly the same time that the news of Dre’s aneurysm was announced.
A spokesperson for Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, confirmed to NBC News that he was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment of a brain aneurysm.
In a public post on his Instagram account Tuesday night, Dre confirmed his hospitalisation and said he’s “doing great.”
“I will be out of the hospital and back home soon,” Dre wrote.
“Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
A number of celebrities have taken to Twitter to send their well wishes to Dre, including fellow N.W.A. member Ice Cube.
Dre is currently in the middle of a bitter divorce battle with estranged wife Nicole Young.
The pair had been together since 1996 and split in June 2020.
There’s due to be a hearing on Wednesday in LA over issues in the couple’s divorce.
