Dr. Dre is still in intensive care one week after he was taken to the hospital following a brain aneurysm.

'Our sources say doctors continue to do a battery of tests to get to the root problem. It's still unclear what caused the brain bleed or whether he underwent surgery.

Sources added that Dre, 55, is now resting and his family have been informed that there isn't looking to be any "bad outcome" overall.

Dr Dre is also in a court battle with his estranged wife Nicole Young and recently agreed to pay her $US2 million in spousal support after they split last summer after 24 years of marriage. Reports say he signed the paperwork from his hospital bed.

Young was initially seeking $2 million monthly on top of $5 million in legal fees, but Dre will not be paying the legal fees she originally asked for.

Melania added it is time for the U.S. and its citizens to "heal" and nobody should use it "for personal gain". The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is expected to take up the matter as early as Wednesday.

Last week, Dre's home was the target of an attempted burglary.

Dre is now in divorce proceedings from his estranged wife Nicole Young after 24 years of marriage. Since then, Dre took to social media to give an update on his health, saying he would be out of the hospital soon.

The day after Dre was admitted to the hospital, he offered his family, friends and fans an update on his health. I'm doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team.

He said at the time he would "be out of the hospital and back home soon", but unfortunately it would appear as though it's a little too unsafe to do that just yet. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. "One Love!" read a statement on Dr. Dre's verified Instagram page. Four people were arrested in Los Angeles last Wednesday night after a pursuit that followed a break-in attempt at his home.
