Brandy Norwood is “home resting” following her hospitalization after losing consciousness and being removed from a LAX Delta flight before takeoff on Friday morning.
She then regained consciousness once escorted onto the jetway, police said, before ultimately being taken to the hospital. Sources told TMZ that Norwood was stable before her hospitalization.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to WHO only that units responded to LAX just after 6 a.m. on Friday for an “unspecified medical complaint,” and that an “ambulance did transport an unknown number of patients to a local hospital in Los Angeles.” The patient was “conscious when taken off the plane,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles World Airport Police tells WHO.
“Brandy has been released from the hospital and is now at home resting,” a statement from her team posted to her official Twitter account read. “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.”
The statement continues, “She was in the studio all night until it was time for her to leave for the airport to catch a 5:45 a.m. flight. The stress of all of the traveling and working so incessantly has exhausted her. She will be relaxing for the next few days.”
