On Oct. 12, 2022, Grammy Award-winning artist Brandy Norwood shared a status update on social media after being hospitalized for a major health issue.
"To my beloved fam, friends, and starz, thank you for sending love and light my way,” Brandy wrote. “I am following doctors' orders and getting the rest I need due to dehydration and low amounts of nutrition. Thank you for your prayers and support. Grateful for you all, see you soon."
This isn’t the first time Brandy has been taken to the hospital for a health scare. In 2017, the “I Wanna Be Down” singer was rushed to the emergency room by paramedics and firefighters after being found unconscious on a Delta Airlines flight out of Los Angeles International Airport.
At the time, Brandy’s publicist Courtney Barnes blamed the incident on her grueling schedule. “The stress of all of the traveling and working so incessantly has exhausted her,” Courtney revealed in a statement that year.
Five years later, the R&B musician is back in the hospital. Here is everything you should know about Brandy’s health status and hospitalization.
