According to TMZ, Brandy Norwood (known by the mononym “Brandy”) is currently recovering from a possible seizure. Hours after the news broke, the Cinderella Alumni updated fans on Instagram and said she was “grateful” to her “beloved family, friends and stars.”
Law enforcement sources told TMZ they received an emergency call at Brandy’s home around noon on Oct. 11. The same article reports that “sources with direct knowledge report [them] Brandy is believed to have suffered a seizure and was taken to a local hospital.”
Hours after TMZ broke the news of Brandy’s health scare, the artist shared an update to her Instagram story. The artist shared that she’ll be seeing fans “soon,” indicating that this wasn’t a life-threatening health complication.
“To my beloved family, friends and Starz – thank you for sending me love and light,” Brandy wrote. “I am following the doctors’ orders and am getting the rest I need due to dehydration and poor nutrition. Thank you for your prayers and support. Thank you for all of you, see you soon.”
