A spywitness tells me me Brown was about to do a sound check for a show tonight at the resort when he was told his wife of three months, Alicia Etheredge, wasn’t well.
“My understanding is that Alicia was taken to the hospital in an ambulance,” the witness said. “They were just doing the sound check with guys from New Edition and Bobby just took off.”
Brown, whose famously rocky first marriage to deceased pop star Whitney Houston fueled gossip rags through the 1990s, left drug rehab before completion of his program this week and high-tailed it Orlando for the gig.
Brown is celebrating New Edition’s 30th anniversary with a concert in a festival organized by Los Angeles radio personality Tom Joyner.
The 10th Annual Tom Joyner Family Reunion also features concerts by KEM, Kenny Lattimore, Tye Tribbett, Dottie Peoples, Lenny Williams, Diggy Simmons, OMG Girlz, Angie Stone, Tamia, Tamela and David Mann.
It is unclear at this point whether Brown will be on hand about 9 p.m., when New Edition is supposed to start.
