Bobby Brown

Throws in Towel

In New Edition Concert Tour

EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Brown Quits New EditionBobby Brown has decided he just can't keep up with the boys ... because TMZ has learned he has now quit the New Edition tour ... for medical reasons.

Bobby was struggling to perform with his group in Mississippi last week ... huffing and puffing and eventually leaving the stage altogether.

Now Bobby's people tell TMZ ... the singer had "an intrusive medical procedure" and needed to go under the care of his doctor, making performing impossible.

We're told he was exhausted and fatigued and could not go through the motions on stage.

Bobby says, "I apologize to the fans of New Edition.  I really wanted to be with my brothers, but presently I am unable to give the fans what they typically expect from New Edition."

It's likely a heart issue. Bobby abused cocaine for years and cocaine is known to destroy heart muscle and tissue.

You have to be healthy & in decent shape to do all that dancing & stuff every night. I'm pretty sure the only six pack he has is Coors Light!
