Exclusive: Chris Brown’s Seizure Caused By Emotional Stress



HipHollywood can confirm that Chris Brown suffered a nonepileptic seizure early Friday morning.

Brown’s camp tells us exclusively that the singer was working in the recording studio when he suffered the seizure. We are told that the singer was not hospitalized, but his doctor tended to him Friday afternoon.

According to the 24-year-old’s rep, Brown’s doctor attributes the NES to “intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity.”

Earlier this week, Brown turned himself into a Van Nuys jail in connection with his hit-and-run case. The singer was booked, and released without bail. Brown is also in the middle of a legal battle with a fan who claimed the “Fine China” pushed her down at a club in Orange County, causing injuries to her knee.

And it seems as though the constant negativity is causing Brown to consider ending his music career.

“Don’t worry mainstream America. After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album,” the troubled singer tweeted this week. ”Being famous is amazing when it’s for your music and talent. I’m tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I’m cool and over it,” Brown wrote.

We wish Chris a speedy recovery.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
