Dr. Dre has been discharged home from the hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm, but doctors still don't know what caused it.

Sources close to Dre tell TMZ, the music mogul went home Friday and he will still need to be monitored 24/7 by medical professionals at his home for the next few weeks.

TMZ's sources say Dre was in ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. until Wednesday, when he was then moved to a private room at the hospital. Although he's been discharged, doctors still don't know what triggered the brain hemorrhage.

Other sources claim Dre experienced partial paralysis and will need in-home physical therapy to get his strength back.

TMZ was first to report, Dre, 55, suffered a ruptured aneurysm at his Pacific Palisades home on Jan. 4 and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars.

Dre released a statement last week, saying he was doing great and he thanked his fans for their support.

Dr. Dre is still in intensive care at a Los Angeles hospital, a week after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm.

The hip-hop legend was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance on January 4, and has been undergoing diagnostic tests to determine the extent of his brain injury.

Doctors say Dre is awake, but they are apparently keeping him in the intensive care unit in case he has another aneurysm.

People with brain aneurysms usually don't have symptoms until the aneurysm bursts, leading to uncontrolled bleeding on the brain. Surgery is indicated to remove a blood clot or to relieve pressure on the brain.

Sources told TMZ that it's unclear whether or not Dre has had surgery to try and stop the brain bleed, but he's apparently "resting comfortably".

"Doctors have cautiously informed his family that a 'bad outcome' doesn't appear to be on the horizon," the insider told TMZ.

Dre hasn't posted on his Instagram page since someone in his camp expressed his thanks for everyone's well wishes just after the health scare.

"Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I'm doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team," someone wrote at the time. "I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!"

Rapper and music producer Dr. Dre suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm that landed him in an ICU at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

Most people who suffer a brain aneurysm have no symptoms until the aneurysm ruptures, causing bleeding in the brain.

Dr. Guillermo Linares, associate professor of neurology at St. Louis University, explained a brain aneurysm to FOx2Now.

"What a brain aneurysm is it's an abnormality in one of the [blood] vessels, the wall of the vessel in the brain. It is an area of weakness," he said. "This area of weakness allows for a small blister or pouch to develop and because, it's weaker, it has a tendency to rupture."

Dr. Linares, who didn't treat Dre, added: "When it ruptures, the high pressure with the blood inside the artery, pushes the blood out and it can cause brain damage. I think in lucky cases the bleeding stops right away and the only thing one would experience is a very severe headache."

Dr. Linares said anti-hypertensive medicine to control high blood pressure and avoid smoking can prevent brain aneurysms from rupturing.

"Those two things are the biggest modifiable risk that will probably prevent an aneurysm from rupturing."

Linares says there are warning signs to look for.

"So, the sudden onset of the worst headache of someone's life," he said. "Especially if accompanied by a difficulty with speaking or weakness in an arm or leg or an asymmetry in the face, should prompt a 911 call right away."

Dr. Dre reportedly paid his ex-wife Nicole Young $2 million in temporary spousal support while he recovers from a brain aneurysm in a Los Angeles hospital.

According to legal documents filed today, the mega producer authorized the $2 million payment from his hospital bed.

The 55-year-old music producer suffered a brain aneurysm Monday and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars and taken directly to ICU, where he is "resting comfortably" according to his lawyer.

A hearing on the matter of the couple's divorce was heard in a courtroom on Wednesday. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, was represented by his attorneys in court.

The judge continued the divorce proceedings until a later date to give Dre time to heal from his brain injury.

According to the agreement, obtained by The Blast, Nicole will receive $2 million by this Monday, and she will be responsible to cover her living expenses and attorney fees.

The agreement, struck by lawyers Samantha Spector and Laura Wasser, says Nicole and Dre agree she will be responsible to pay her own security fees for the next few months until the parties are back in court. The judge continued the divorce hearing until April. Of course, at that time she can ask for reimbursement of expenses and negotiate a final number.

As TMZ reported, Nicole wants $2 million a month in temporary spousal support plus $5 million for attorneys fees, but a judge laughed her out of court last year.
