LOS ANGELES – Bobby Brown spent a night in the hospital after suffering a mild heart attack, his attorney said Wednesday. Brown had severe chest pains Tuesday night and was taken to two hospitals. He was admitted to Tarzana Regional Medical Center in the San Fernando Valley.
“This morning they did diagnose him as suffering from a mild heart attack … they attributed (it) to stress and diet,” said his attorney, Phaedra Parks, in Atlanta.
His father and brother stayed with Brown and he was released Wednesday morning in good condition, Parks said.
“He is in great spirits, he’s doing very well,” she said. “He’s speaking with family members.”
Brown thanked fans for their good wishes and hoped to make a scheduled performance Saturday in Los Angeles, his attorney said.
“He just wants the fans to know that he is definitely going to come back full speed ahead,” Parks said.
Brown, 38, lives in Southern California. He is the former husband of Whitney Houston and is seeking custody of their teenage daughter.
