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

According to TMZ, doctors are still conducting tests to figure out what triggered the 55-year-old mogul's aneurysm and are keeping him in ICU as a precaution.

Sources told the outlet, Dre "is resting comfortably." The insider added that doctors have "cautiously informed [Dre's] family that a 'bad outcome' doesn't appear to be on the horizon."

The music mogul suffered a brain aneurysm last Monday (January 4) and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was taken directly to ICU, as TMZ previously reported. Sources told the outlet on Tuesday (January 5) that Dre was stable and lucid, however, they noted that doctors were still doing tests to identify what caused the aneurysm.

Shortly after news broke about his hospitalization, Dre shared a message to his fans on Instagram, updating them on his condition."Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes," Dre captioned a black-and-white photo of himself in a music studio. "I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!"
