Etheredge's seizure was brought on by diabetes, with which she was diagnosed in 2009, a source tells People.com. Etheredge was reportedly told she suffered the disease while pregnant with son Cassius, 3, her child with husband Bobby Brown

On Saturday, Brown tweeted that Etheredge was "recovering and in good spirits." There is no word on whether she has been released from the Orlando area hospital she was taken to following the attack she suffered in the couple's hotel room. 


Bobby Brown's wife, Alicia Etheredge, was hospitalized following a seizure on September 1, the New Edition singer confirms. 

Etheredge, who married Brown in Hawaii this past June, suffered a seizure in the couple's Kissimmee, Florida, hotel room just hours before a New Edition concert at the Gaylord Palms Resort. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she is "recovering and is in good spirits and doing well," Brown said via Twitter, adding, "Please keep my family in your prayers." 

In spite of Etheredge's condition, the show went on for Brown. The New Edition front-man took the stage that night as scheduled. 

Brown was previously married to the late pop legend Whitney Houston. The couple divorced in 2007.
