After reportedly having a health scare on Tuesday, Brandy Norwood is taking some time to rest. TMZ says that the singer and actress, who is 43 years old, was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital around noon after an EMS call from her home. The news source said that Brandy may have had a seizure before being taken to a nearby hospital.
Wednesday, the singer posted a note on her Instagram account thanking her friends and family for “sending love and light my way.”
Brandy didn’t say much about what happened, and she didn’t address rumors that she had a seizure. However, the Queens actress did say that she was following “doctors’ orders” and getting the rest she needed because she was dehydrated and hadn’t eaten enough.
She thanked her fans for supporting her and said, “See you all soon.”

In June 2017, the singer had a similar experience when she was found unconscious on a Delta flight that was supposed to go from LAX to JFK. She was taken to the hospital.
ET confirmed at the time with Delta and the L.A. County Fire Department that a passenger was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. In a statement to ET, the singer’s rep said that Brandy had been released from the hospital after passing out on a flight and was now “resting at home.”

“All of the stress of traveling and working so much has worn her out,” the statement said. “She will take a few days off to rest.”
Since Ray J’s worrying posts on social media, the singer has been showing her love for her younger brother. Last week, Brandy posted a picture of herself and Ray J from the past on Instagram with the words “Need you bro @rayj.” The post came just hours after Ray J posted on Instagram about wanting to kill himself, which scared his fans.
“If it wasn’t for my Kidz, I would jump off and die tonight,” Ray J wrote in the caption of a post that has since been taken down. Ray J and his wife, Princess Love, have two kids: Melody, who is 4 years old, and Epik, who is 2 years old.
In another post, his feet were hanging over a ledge. “SHOULD I JUST JUMP and be done with it?” was the title of that post. Now!!! ????”
The 41-year-old reality TV star said on his Instagram Story that he was “trying to figure it out” and that “maybe this life was an illusion.” He also said, “Perhaps my real life was in the next one.”
A source close to Ray J told the outlet that he was with Princess Love and that drinking made him post disturbing things on social media. The source told TMZ that Ray J was not in the hospital and was just “messing around.”
