Chris Brown Hosts Charity Basketball Game Post-Seizure
Chris Brown didn’t let his health setbacks keep him from doing good as he launched his “L.A. Unity Games” over the weekend. The sports event was a special collaboration in conjunction with gang interventionists, 2nd Call, Brown’s own Symphonic Love foundation and the Los Angeles Police Department in a bid to “inspire a spirit of respect” and prevent gang violence. It also marked the “Love More” singer’s first public appearance since suffering a non-epileptic seizure early Friday morning (August 9) at the Recording Plant studio in Hollywood due to “intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress,” according to his doctor.
Brown balled hard and snapped shots with fans, seeming to be in good spirits. He even showed love to to Reebok who supported the festivities. “Thanks @reebok for supporting my charity bball game today vs LAPD with the Blue/White ‘Letters of Intent’ Kamikaze’s!,” he tweeted. The seizure attack followed an emotional episode on Thursday when Brown hinted at a possible retirement from music, stemming from the backlash he continues to receive from the 2009 Grammy incident involving his ex-girlfriend/ pop star Rihanna.
“Don’t worry mainstream America.After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album,” he posted. “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!”
Necole Bitchie reports that the “Don’t Think They Know” crooner also sent out an eyebrow-raising tweet on Saturday post-seizure. “They won’t love u until u r a memory…” he wrote before deleting it.
