'Pray For Chris Brown' Trending On Twitter Following Singer's Seizure
Early this morning, Chris Brown suffered a minor seizure at an L.A. recording studio. According to the New York Daily News, firefighters responded to a call at about 1:00 a.m. to the Record Plant studio, where they found the singer.
