Singer Brandy, 43, rushed to LA hospital after suffering potential seizure

Singer Brandy Norwood, known professionally as Brandy, has been rushed to hospital in LA, after suffering from what has been described as a "potential seizure."

The singer and actress, 43, was at home when she suffered from a medical emergency, causing an ambulance to be called at noon local time on Tuesday, 11 October, according to reports from TMZ.

According to the outlet, she remains in hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.

It is currently unknown if Brandy has been suffering from any health concerns that may have led to an ambulance needing to be called on Tuesday.

TMZ report that their source believes the star suffered a seizure, but that this has not be confirmed.

OK! has approached Brandy's representative for comment.

The health emergency occurred just days after her younger brother Ray-J, 41, raised alarm over distressing content posted to his Instagram.

In the now-deleted posts, a video clip saw the star's legs hanging over a ledge, as he asked viewers if he should "just jump off."

Soon after, Brandy posted a throwback snap with her younger brother, which she captioned: "Need you bro."

Siblings Ray-J and Brandy have always been close, and in July Ray-J unveiled a tattoo on his leg, which showed an image of his sister.

Since showing off his new tattoo, the singer has received a huge amount of backlash, with many thinking that his choice of body art was rather bizarre.

Speaking to TMZ, the Sexy Can I singer said: "'It's my leg, it's my sister."

Brandy was reportedly a bit uneasy about the style of the ink at first, but may have since come around to the new body art.

Speaking about his tattoo Ray-J said: "I love my sister and that was just a symbol of me saying thank you for putting me in. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be here. I’m humbled just to have her helping me."

Brandy is said to currently be in hospital, with her parents at her side, although it remains unclear if brother Ray-J is with them.
