Chris Brown Suffers Non-Epileptic Seizure
Chris Brown suffered a seizure while at a recording studio on Friday, according to his representative.
The recording artist reportedly suffered a non-epileptic seizure and did not go to the hospital. He was treated by his doctor, who according to his representative, attributed the seizure to "intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress" related to the "continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and nonstop negativity."
Non-epileptic seizures, unlike epileptic seizures, are not related to abnormal electrical charges in the brain. Instead the origin of a non-epileptic seizure is usually psychological rather than physical, according to the Epilepsy Foundation.
Last month Brown's probation was revoked by a judge after an auto accident. Brown did stop after he allegedly rear-ended another car in May but is accused of not giving the other driver his complete license and insurance information.
Brown is on felony probation related to his assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He has another hearing scheduled for August 16 and could face four years in jail unless his probation is reinstated.
