UPDATE: TMZ spoke with Phaedra Parks, Brown's attorney. She told us that Bobby did suffer a mild heart attack and attributes the cause to "stress and diet." "He has been examined," she tells us, "and doctors determined there is no blockage but inflammation of the heart." Parks says "Bobby is doing good. He is in good spirits. It's a serious condition, and I'm very concerned about him. Bobby is very happy with the outpouring of calls and messages. We ask people to keep him in their thoughts and prayers." As for this Saturday's performance at V100's Taste of Soul, she says "He has all of the intention to perform, but it's not clear yet if he will be able to do it."
UPDATE: Lee Bailey of EURWEB spoke to Brown this afternoon, who told him "Everything's all right with me. I got a clean bill of health and everything's fine," he says. "I'm ready to get on this road and do these shows and take care of what I gotta take care of."
