"While in the studio working early this morning, Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES)," his rep told Us in a statement. "He was not hospitalized."
The rep added, "His doctor tended to him this afternoon and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity."
Indeed, the "Home" crooner seemed to not be in the best spirits this week. On Tuesday, a day after he spent 45 minutes in jail for a hit and run, he tweeted to his followers that he's may be ending his musical career.
"Don't worry, mainstream America," he wrote in a tweet that was later deleted. "After this X album, it'll probably be my last album."
"Being famous is amazing when it's for your music and talent," he continued. "I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18. I'm cool and over it!"
Brown was presumably alluding to his 2009 assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
The singer, who's currently linked to model Karrueche Tran, did get some support earlier this week from fellow R&B artist Jason Derulo. "The Other Side" singer, appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Aug. 7, was asked about Brown's tweet, which hinted that his end in music was near.
"I just think there's a lot of pressure in the public eye and times can get really get rough for any performer," Derulo, 23, offered. "So keep him in your prayers and hope for the best for him."
On Saturday, Brown wrote, "They won't love u until u r a memory"
Brown's upcoming album, X, releases Aug. 26.
