News spread quickly when musician Chris Brown collapsed after suffering from a seizure early Friday morning while working at a recording studio in Los Angeles. The singer, 24, reportedly refused treatment for the episode. His doctor has blamed the attack on “intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress.”
The tabloids started reporting about the seizure as early as Friday afternoon, causing fans to form a new hashtag on Twitter called “#PrayForChrisBrown.” Brown’s reps didn’t confirm the seizure until Friday night; when they did, they used the episode to criticize the media and what they deemed as the “negative” continued focus on Brown’s assault incident with fellow singer Rihanna. They were of course referring to the incident when Brown assaulted Rihanna while heading to an awards show in 2009.
As far as the seizure is concerned, Brown’s reps have stated that his seizure was a non-epileptic one, which means that the seizure is not believed to be linked to epilepsy.
“Chris suffered a non-epileptic seizure (NES),” they wrote. “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.”
While Brown is expected to release his newest album later on this month, his legal problems may be causing much of the stress that has been linked to his seizure. Currently, Brown is accused of violating the terms of his probation when he was involved in a minor car accident on May 21. After the accident, Brown left the scene and did not give his personal information before doing so.
Epilepsy is a condition that causes seizures and affects millions of people worldwide. The condition is treated with various medications including Topamax. Topamax has been linked to an increased risk of suicide and suicidal thoughts, as well as birth defects in women whose babies are exposed to the drug in-utero. Some of those birth defects linked to Topamax use during pregnancy include cleft lips, cleft palates, genital defects and other birth malformations.
