Grammy-winning songbird Brandy was recently rushed to the hospital after she fell unconscious on a flight.
The 38-year old singer, born Brandy Norwood, was at Los Angeles International Airport heading to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, when she passed out as the flight was about to take off on Friday morning (June 2).
After flight attendants and passengers came to her aid, the paramedics reportedly arrived at the scene, removed her from the plane and tended to her health.
She reportedly “regained full consciousness while she was being treated on the jetway” before being transported to the nearest hospital.
A Delta spokesperson said the flight returned to the gate prior to departure after a customer fell ill on board and that medical personnel transported the person to a local hospital. The flight took off 45 minutes late.
Sources say that singer was stable en route to the hospital and has since been released.
Brandy’s publicist issued a statement to The Associated Press, sharing that her strenuous schedule and stress of traveling contributed to the incident.
“Brandy has been released from the hospital and is now at home resting,” the singer’s team said in their statement.
“She has been traveling extensively as part of an ongoing tour and several personal appearances. In recent days, she has taken more than 10 long haul flights including internationally. She was in the studio all night last night until it was time for her to leave the airport to catch a 5:45 a.m. flight.”
“The stress of all the traveling and working so incessantly has exhausted her,” the statement continued. “She will be relaxing for the next few days.”
