Dr. Drey says the music mogul will “return home soon” after receiving medical treatment for a blood report brain neurosis at a Los Angeles hospital.
The rapper and producer said in an Instagram post on Tuesday night that he is grateful for the “good wishes”. DMZ, who had earlier reported Drain’s admission to the hospital, said he suffered a brain aneurysm on Monday and was recovering at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. The Los Angeles Times quoted sources as saying they were in a stable condition.
“I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team,” he said. “I’ll be out of the hospital soon and come home soon. Crying to all the great medical professionals at Cedar. A love !!”
His representative did not immediately respond to an Associated Press email.
TMZ said the 55-year-old was stable and lucid but doctors did not know what caused the bleeding and were doing tests.
