UPDATE: A rep for Chris Brown released the following statement: "While in the studio working early this morning, Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES). He was not hospitalized. 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."
When the Los Angeles City Fire Department arrived, Brown, who experienced seizures as a child, refused to be taken to the hospital, TMZ reported.
Calls to Brown’s publicist and Record Plant were not returned, but the LAFD confirmed to E! News that an emergency call was placed from the studio at 1:09 a.m.
After the seizure scare, Brown’s on-and-off girlfriend, Karrueche Tran tweeted "Prayers all day." Seven hours later she tweeted again: "A lot on my mind today… I need a hug."
Stay tuned for further information as it develops.
