Friends and fellow stars wished Dr Dre well after the reports of his ill health emerged.
Ice Cube, his former bandmate in trailblazing 1980s hip-hop group NWA, tweeted : "Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr Dre."
Snoop Dogg, who was discovered by Dr Dre in the early 1990s, wrote on Instagram : "GET WELL DR DRE WE NEED U CUZ."

An aneurysm is the enlargement of an artery caused by weakness in a blood vessel wall.
Most brain aneurysms only cause noticeable symptoms if they burst, leading to bleeding on the brain, which can cause a very serious condition and can be fatal.
