Chris Brown suffered a seizure in a Los Angeles recording studio Friday and collapsed but was not hospitalized, his representative confirmed.
Paramedics rushed to the scene at the Record Planet recording studios following an emergency call at 1:09AM.
When Brown apparently came from his fit, he refused treatment and did not want to be taken to hospital.
Brown’s seizure was not the result of epilepsy but instead blamed on severe “emotional stress” and exhaustion, according to a statement released Friday night.
“Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES),” the statement read. “His doctor tended to him this afternoon and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity.”
The singer has been on felony probation since the 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.A judge revoked his probation last month and ordered a hearing in a May 12 hit-and-run case.
In February, authorities investigated a fight between Brown and singer Frank Ocean at a recording studio, but Ocean didn’t press charges.
