LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Alicia Etheredge-Brown, wife of Bobby Brown, was rushed to the hospital after suffering a seizure on Saturday.
According to a local report, Alicia – who is also Bobby’s manager – had a seizure in the couple’s hotel room in Kissimmee, Fla., while the singer was performing a soundcheck ahead of the New Edition show scheduled to take place at the Gaylord Palms Resort on Saturday evening.
Bobby confirmed the report via Twitter, writing, “The report that my wife was rushed to the hospital is true. She is recovering and is in good spirits and doing well.
“Please keep my family in your prayers,” he added.
Despite Alicia’s health scare, Bobby – who checked himself into rehab last month following a DUI arrest – performed as planned, and shared some positive news with the audience.
“I’m seven and a half years off narcotics, 21 days clean of alcohol and I go by Bad Ass Bobby Brown!” he told the crowd.
Bobby and Alicia married in June, after Bobby proposed during a New Edition concert in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2010.
They have a son, 3-year-old Cassius, together.
