Brandy thanks fans for ‘prayers and support’ after reported hospitalization in L.A.
Brandy is thanking fans for their “prayers and support” after she was reportedly hospitalized in Los Angeles for a possible seizure.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that police received a call for emergency services to the singer and actor’s L.A. home on Tuesday at noon. According to TMZ, Brandy is expected to recover from the medical incident. Her parents were reportedly with her at the hospital as of Wednesday morning.
“To my beloved fam, friends, and starz thank you for sending love and light my way,” Brandy said Wednesday in a statement shared on social media. “I am following doctors’ orders and getting the rest I need due to dehydration and low amounts of nutrition. ... Grateful for you all, see you soon.”
The Times has contacted the LAPD. A representative for Brandy, whose full name is Brandy Norwood, did not immediately respond Wednesday to The Times’ request for comment.
The Grammy winner was previously hospitalized in June 2017 after falling ill on a Delta Air Lines flight from Los Angeles International Airport. Firefighters and paramedics arrived at the airport and transported Brandy to the hospital after the flight crew became aware of the situation and returned to the plane to the gate.
Actress-singer Brandy Norwood, 38, was hospitalized June 2 after falling ill on a flight at LAX, according to media reports.
“The stress of all of the traveling and working so incessantly has exhausted her,” Brandy’s longtime publicist, Courtney Barnes, said in a statement at the time. “She will be relaxing for the next few days.”
Brandy, 43, is known for R&B hits such as “The Boy Is Mine” (with Monica) and “I Wanna Be Down.” She has also starred in movies and TV series, including the popular sitcom “Moesha,” the recent “Queens” and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.”
