Dr. Dre is back home after being hospitalized for a reported brain aneurysm.

Dre's attorney, Peter Paterno, confirmed his return home on Saturday (Jan. 16), according to the Associated Press. Paterno did not provide any further details.

The 55-year-old music mogul received treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering a brain aneurysm on Jan. 4. TMZ first reported the news.

"Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes," Dre had said in a statement released on Jan. 5. "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!!"

"He’s resting comfortably," Dre's rep had told Billboard at the time.

Prayers and positive energy poured in for Dre amid his hospitalization, with Ice Cube, Missy Elliott, G-Eazy, LL Cool J and more wishing him a quick recovery.

And on Friday (Jan. 15), Ice T posted an update: "Just FaceTimed with @drdre," he wrote on Twitter. "He just made it home. Safe and looking good."
