Chris Brown’s representatives have confirmed that the unlikable musician had a seizure early Friday morning, though he was not hospitalized and it seems the episode was less serious than much of the PrayForChrisBrown hashtag would lead you to believe. “Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES),” said a statement released Friday night. “His doctor tended to him this afternoon.” Still, this all could have been prevented: The statement went on to say that Brown’s doctor “attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity.” That last bit doesn’t exactly sound like a considered medical opinion to us but, then again, we’re not doctors or Chris Brown.
