Rapper LL Cool J confirmed Dr. Dre is recovering on Twitter.

“Dre is recovering nicely,” he tweeted.

Dr. Dre is currently in the midst of a divorce with his estranged wife Nicole Young, as previously reported. The musician and his wife had been married for 24 years. Young reportedly cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, according to TMZ.

Young asked a judge to reject a prenuptial agreement, claiming Dre tore up the agreement before the couple married in 1996, TMZ reported. She is also seeking $2 million in spousal support, according to the outlet.

Young also requested $2 million a month in spousal support and wants Dr. Dre to pay her lawyer fees, which amount to $5 million, the outlet reported.
