Chris Brown collapsed at Record Plant recording studios in Hollywood on Friday and the seizure has been blamed on his intense fatigue and anxiety related to his recent hit and run legal troubles.
A spokesperson for Chris Brown, 24, told UsWeekly: “While in the studio working early this morning, Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES). He was not hospitalized.”
“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.”
Chris Brown was previously reported to have refused medical treatment at the scene following the seizure and was fully responsive.

The incident came shortly after Chris Brown, who spent 45 minutes in jail on Monday after his probation, stemming from his assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was revoked due to an alleged hit and run accident in Los Angeles in May, claimed he was “tired of being famous”.
The LA Fire Department had been called to the scene early in the morning on Friday after receiving a 911 call, according to TMZ.
But when paramedics arrived at Record Plant recording studios, Chris Brown is said to have refused treatment and declined to be taken to the hospital.
The call was allegedly made at 1:09 a.m. from the Hollywood studio.
It is not yet confirmed whether Chris Brown did indeed have a seizure, but according to TMZ the singer did suffer seizures as a child.
Earlier in the day, Chris Brown was seen spraypainting a wall outside a tattoo parlor.
Australian police have seized drugs worth over $500 million dollars and broken up a Hong Kong-based drugs ring.
Four Hong Kong nationals and three Australian residents were also arrested in raids in Sydney on Monday.
Over half a ton of drugs, including 306 kg (674.61 lb) of crystal methamphetamine – also known as ”ice” – and 252 kg of heroin, were seized.

The drugs are estimated to be worth A$500 million (US$526 million), the Australian Federal Police (AFP) said in a statement.
The raids and arrests followed a year-long investigation.
“Countless lives would have been affected had this seizure made its way to Australian streets,” Deputy Commissioner Andrew Colvin told Australian media.
He said investigations would continue and more arrests could take place.
The investigations into the syndicate began in August 2011 after a tip-off from the US Drug Enforcement Administration, police said. The drugs were found in a shipment of terracotta pots on 19 July.
The suspects will face charges for importing and possessing drugs in a Sydney court.
Reports claim that Demi Moore collapsed after taking nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, while at her LA home.
Demi Moore, 49, allegedly inhaled the laughing gas out of a canister commonly used in whipping cream cans. She allegedly collapsed after having a bad reaction, according to TMZ.
A source told TMZ Demi Moore started to show symptoms of a seizure after ingesting large amounts of the substance.
“Whip-it” is the street name for nitrous oxide contained in a small metal canister and usually used for recharging whipping cream cans in restaurants.
According to TMZ, a female friend who was with the actress while she was inhaling gas told hospital staff she became distressed when Demi Moore had a reaction and was rendered semi-unconscious.
The “whip-it” charger is sold separately and users inhale it from the canister to receive a “quick high”.
It is typically used by young teenagers and is popular because it can easily be bought over the counter from the supermarket.
Prescription medication is also said to have played a part in her hospitalization and that her consistent use was one of the causes of her marriage collapse.
“It was a sticking point for Ashton,” a source told People magazine. “He wanted her to take care of herself and get a hold of things, and she wouldn’t.
“Her family and friends have been really worried.”

Insiders have also told People magazine that Demi Moore was troubled and not looking after herself long before Monday night’s hospital dash.
They say the problems began as she endured her break-up with Ashton Kutcher.
“Really, it was over the last year her friends saw a change,” a source told the magazine. “She wasn’t sleeping as well, didn’t seem to be eating and looked really gaunt.”
Demi Moore was rushed to hospital on Monday night.
The actress, who has appeared increasingly frail in recent weeks, was taken to hospital by ambulance following a call to 911 just before 11:00 pm.
Shortly after being admitted to hospital, website Radar claimed Demi Moore was being treated for anorexia, among other substance abuse issues.
The news emerged as Ashton Kutcher, 33, from whom she is estranged, was pictured enjoying a beer as he partied with friends at a Bruno Mars gig in Brazil.
Ashton Kutcher has been in the South American country for its fashion week.
Demi Moore has become frighteningly thin since her split with Ashton Kutcher, and a source close to the actress described what happened to her.
A source told Radar: “She collapsed after having an epileptic seizure… she has not taken care of her health at all lately and has lost a ton of weight.”
“Demi is in getting treated for anorexia, as well as other issues that caused her seizure,” the source added.
In the weeks before her hospitalization, Demi Moore was spotted letting loose on a wild night out with her daughter Rumer, 23.
On the night of January 11 she joined her eldest child at Hollywood hot spot Beacher’s Madhouse where sources tell Us Weekly magazine she was “table dancing while three guys sat there watching”.
At least one onlooker claims Demi Moore appeared intoxicated, although others only saw her drinking Red Bull.

Demi Moore’s frail and gaunt and appearance in recent weeks has caused considerable concern.
The mother-of-three, who announced she was divorcing husband Ashton Kutcher last November, has lost a considerable amount of weight over the past four months.
Demi Moore last appeared in public on January 14 at the Cinema For Peace event at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Her frail appearance shocked fans, although she appears to have been loosing weight steadily since claims emerged Ashton Kutcher had cheated on her with 22-year-old Sara Leal.
Demi Moore, who looked a shadow of her former self, wore a slim fitting black dress which showed just how much weight she had lost from her usually toned physique.
On November 17, 2011, Demi Moore announced that she was filing for divorce from Ashton Kutcher after six years of marriage.
In a statement Demi Moore said: “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton.
“As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life.”
While Demi Moore is seeking treatment, Ashton Kutcher is currently in Sao Paulo where he has been attending the Fashion Week.
Yesterday Ashton Kutcher shared a snap of himself joking around pretending to surf on a street during a spot of rain.
Ashton Kutcher is also said to have moved on following the breakdown of his marriage to Demi Moore.
The actor is now reportedly dating screenwriter Lorene Scafaria, who, at 33, is his own age.
The pair spent Christmas together in Europe.
Earlier this month, Demi Moore was seen in a parking lot with a 26-year-old actor and personal trainer Blake Corl-Baietti.
Her reps refused to comment on speculation that the actress was in a relationship with the younger man.
Demi Moore recently opened up about her fears and heartache in an interview with US Harper’s Bazaar.
She admitted: “What scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved.
“That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.”
