Brandy Norwood has been released from hospital.

The 38-year-old singer – known professionally as Brandy – was taken to hospital on Friday, June 2, morning after falling unconscious shortly before her flight from Los Angeles to New York was due to take off, and her management team have now released a statement claiming the star was “exhausted” from “working so incessantly”, and is “now at home resting”.

Posting on the brunette beauty’s Twitter account, the statement read: “Brandy has been released from hospital and is now at home resting. She has been travelling extensively as part of an ongoing tour and several personal appearances. In recent days she has taken more than 10 long haul flights including internationally. She was in the studio all night last night until it was time for her to leave for the airport to catch a 5:45 am flight. The stress of all the travelling and working so incessantly has exhausted her. She will be relaxing for the next few days.”

The message – which was posted in the form of a picture – was simply captioned: “Message from Team Brandy.”

Meanwhile, it was previously reported that ‘The Boy Is Mine’ hitmaker fell unconscious as the plane was preparing to pull out of the gate ready for take off, and passengers and flight attendants "scrambled to help" the star.

According to reports at the time, Delta Airlines – who were operating the flight from LAX to New York’s JFK airport – "contacted the LA City Fire Department, and paramedics arrived quickly and removed Brandy from the plane.”

The ‘Have You Ever’ singer regained consciousness whilst she was being treated by paramedics on the jetway, and was taken to Marina Del Rey Hospital in an "unknown condition”.

Los Angeles airport police said at the time: "Officers and firefighter-paramedics responded about 7 a.m. to a report of a person who was 'unconscious or almost unconscious' shortly after boarding a Delta Airlines plane."
