Brandy and Ray J's Mom, Sonja Norwood, Addresses Seeking ‘Medical Attention’ Following IV Vitamin Therapy

“Thank God I am not in the hospital. I'm doing great!" she said.

Sonja Norwood is clearing up rumors about a recent visit to the hospital.

On Monday (Nov. 6), Norwood –who is mom to Brandy and Ray J– took to Facebook to dispel discrepancies regarding a recent health scare that led her to the emergency room, as first published by TMZ.

According to Norwood, she went to the hospital following an at-home IV drip weeks ago, and "It was not a big deal."

"Thank God I am not in the hospital. I'm doing great!" she wrote in the post. "I did have a negative reaction to an IV VITAMIN Therapy WEEKS AGO!"

She continued, "I went to the hospital and got a big Grade A on my medical reports. It's known that I seek medical attention if there could be a potential health issue at my age. That is about it! Nothing more or less!"

Norwood said she typically avoids speaking on headlines in the press, but decided to make an exception this time due to being overwhelmed by calls from people who were concerned.

"I don't usually address stories about myself, but I was quite surprised to wake up to a call from a long-time friend/publicist asking, "Sonja, are you in the hospital, and are you okay?" "What? Where is that coming from," I asked," she explained.

Additionally, she was unaware that a story had been made about her health from the outlet and "frowned" when she eventually saw it.

"I had no idea the responses would be so huge to the point I couldn't address them one by one, so I felt the need to say something publicly." contacted the Norwood family and was told that "Ms. Sonja is all good."

Vitamin-infused IV treatments have gained popularity in recent years because they're said to deliver essential nutrients to the bloodstream quickly. However, per Web MD, users can experience adverse effects such as allergic reactions and/or nausea, headaches, and confusion due to overhydration.

In 2018, Kendall Jenner was hospitalized after having a bad reaction to a vitamin IV drip, according to People.
