Chris Brown suffers seizure

MANILA, Philippines - Singer Chris Brown collapsed due to a seizure on Friday, August 9, at Record Plant studio in Los Angeles, according to "The Hollywood Reporter."

A representative confirmed that the Grammy winner's seizure was due to "extreme emotional stress."

"Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure [NES]," a statement by the representative said.

"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."

TMZ first reported that the Los Angeles Police Department rushed to the recording studio after a 911 call was placed at 1:09 a.m. of Friday.

TMZ also reports that the singer suffered seizures as a child.

According to photo agency X17, Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins, has flown from Virginia to Los Angeles to be with her son.

Brown's probation stemming from his assault on former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 was revoked in July, after the singer was charged with a hit-and-run offense and with driving without a license. 

His latest tweet is about his upcoming music video featuring Nicki Minaj.
