Dre's hospitalization happened in the middle of Dre’s divorce from Nicole Young — the former flames are in a legal battle about the validity of their prenup agreement.

Young wants $2 million per month in temporary spousal support and $5 million in attorney fees, but Dre has been paying all her fees and believed the attorney cost was outrageous. 

Young claims that Dre ripped up their prenup early in their marriage and wants the judge to reject it, which Dre denies.

The former couple wed in 1996 and share two children, Truice, 23, and Truly, 19, before they called it quits in 2020. 

TMZ was the first to report the news about the brain aneurism. 

We wish Dr. Dre a speedy recovery!
