Dr Dre's home was targeted by burglars who knew he is fighting a brain aneurysm in hospital, it's claimed.
Four men reportedly tried to break into the rapper's home in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, on Wednesday around 2 AM.
It came after reports that the 55-year-old music mogul was rushed to hospital by ambulance and was taken direct to intensive care, where he is being treated for a brain aneurysm.
When the burgulars attempted to break-in security spotted them and confronted them before they could get into the house, according to TMZ.
The security guards called the police and the group of men attempted to flee the scene.

Police reportedly took four people into custody
Police arrived on the scene almost immediately and chased the would-be burglars, catching and arresting them.
TMZ claims that the police believe they had seen reports of Dr Dre being admitted to hospital and seized on the opportunity to break into his home.
He was reported to be "stable and lucid" but medical staff were trying to pinpoint what is causing the bleeding on the brain.

A brain aneurysm is a "bulge" in a blood vessel caused by a weakness in the vessel, with the build-up of pressure in the blood vessel can cause it to "bulge outwards like a balloon".
Dr Dre then updated fans on his health on Instagram.
He wrote: "Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes.
