Chris Brown suffers seizure at recording studio because of 'extreme emotional stress, fatigue, legal matters and nonstop negativity'

The 'Look At Me Now' singer suffered a non-epileptic seizure at a Hollywood recording studio on Friday

The Grammy award winning singer Chris Brown suffered a seizure brought on by extreme emotional stress and fatigue relating to legal matters and nonstop negativity, his publicist said yesterday.

The “Look At Me Now” singer suffered a non-epileptic seizure at a Hollywood recording studio on Friday morning.

According to TMZ, paramedics rushed to the scene at the Record Planet recording studios following an emergency call at 1:09AM.

Mr Brown apparently came around from his fit, refused treatment and did not want to be taken to hospital.

His publicist Nicole Perna told the Washington Post that doctors attributed the attack to: “intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity.”

The singer, who won a Grammy in 2011 for Best R&B Album with “F.A.M.E.”, has been on probation since 2009 following an assault on his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

A judge revoked his probation last month and ordered a hearing in a May 12 hit-and-run case, in which he is suspected of rear-ending a car stopped at a red light in the San Fernando Valley.

Brown allegedly refused to give the other driver his license or insurance information.

The driver of the other car said Brown was polite at first, but a confrontation arose after she kept demanding identification.

In February, the Sheriff’s Department investigated a fight between Brown and singer Frank Ocean at a recording studio, but Ocean declined to pursue a battery case against Brown.

The same month, Brown crashed his Porsche while being chased by paparazzi.
