Breezy gets wheezy for a brief second after scary seizure; puts the blame on the hellstorm of bad headlines

Chris Brown is having a hard time trying to catch a good break.

The troubled R&B singer, who was recently sentenced to jail for breaking his probation after a hit-and-run accident on August 5 (but released in a hour with no bail set), suffered a seizure on this past Friday morning at the infamous Record Plant studio in Los Angeles. When EMD responded to the 911 call and arrived, Brown refused to be taking to a nearby hospital for check-up and denied treatment.

According to a statement issued Friday night: “Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES). … 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.”

There are still a number of questions being raised regarding Brown’s present state of mind, and if this has been a regular occurrence for the star. Ugly headlines have been surfacing on Brown’s bad boy rap sheet ever since his attack on Rihanna went viral. After that, he was involved in a major beat ’em up tussle with rapper Drake and crew at a New York nightclub, followed by a major altercation with Frank Ocean outside of a nightclub in a separate incident.

Brown’s Twitter feed has been quite numb since the story of his seizure made landfall on the Internet. But #prayforchrisbrown did become a trending topic after Brown’s health scare. Even his on-and-off again girlfriend Rihanna is worried about Brown’s well being: “That’s heartbreaking and crazy devastating because she doesn’t want Chris to be sick, let alone to faint,” a close source to Rihanna said. “She was worried at first but after she heard he didn’t go to the hospital, she was relieved. That could have been bad news for him.”

Maybe Brown is in need of a long vacation. He’s definitely considering it after he announced that he will be retiring from music after his next album is finished. “Don’t worry mainstream America. After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album,” Brown wroteadding, “Being famous is amazing when it’s for ur music and talent. I’m tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I’m cool & over it!”

X, Brown’s upcoming album, plans to drops August 20 on RCA Records.
