Yesterday we reported that Chris Brown had possibly suffered a seizure, but noted that there was no official confirmation.

We now have that. The troubled singer's rep issued a statement confirming the incident and offered some explanations as to why it occurred.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brown experienced a seizure very early yesterday morning. He was busy working on tracks at the Los Angeles based recording studio, the Record Plant, when the attack happened.

The "Look at Me Now" singer was not hospitalized after the event, but did receive treatment from a doctor.

"Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES)," Brown's rep said.

The cause was reportedly related to stressors in the singer's life. The rep explained:

"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."

Brown's stressors range from very public feuds (and actual fisticuffs) with other famous musicians to parole violations to upset over his posthumous Aaliyah collabo

But it appears the biggest stress in the 24 year old's life is the lingering stigma from his 2009 assault on then girlfriend, Rihanna. 

Just days before his seizure, the singer announced via Twitter that his upcoming album, X, (due out August 20th) would likely be his last.

"Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," he wrote.

"Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"
