After a stay of three nights at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, Va., last week, musician Bobby Brown, 33, is said to be resting at his New Jersey home after being released from the hospital for treatment of an undisclosed infection. Confirmation of Brown’s release came from a publicist for his wife, Whitney Houston, speaking to the Associated Press. Press agent Nancy Seltzer told the news service that Brown was traveling through Virginia with Houston, 38, in their tour bus when they made the hospital stop last Wednesday. Seltzer went on to explain that the couple’s route was to have taken them home from Atlanta, where Houston was recording a new album. Seltzer said on Monday that Brown, who was treated intravenously with an antibiotic and is continuing to take oral antibiotics at home, had a fever, but she declined to specify the nature of the infection. Last August, reported that Brown had to be rushed to a Morristown, N.J., hospital in the middle of the night to receive treatment for a seizure. At the time, Seltzer said Brown had a seizure because of the intense heat and a hectic recording schedule for his new album. “He hadn’t been getting enough fluid and basically he was light-headed,” she said. In response to reports that Brown — who had spent time in a Florida jail for violating probation on a 1996 drunken-driving arrest and for failing to take a drug test — refused to provide blood and urine samples when he checked into the ER, Seltzer was quoted as saying that Brown felt fine when he got to the hospital and didn’t feel that such tests were necessary.
