The 43-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer is currently still in hospital, and is expected to make a full recovery.

In 2017, Brandy was taken to hospital after she was found unconscious on a Delta flight from Los Angeles to New York.

At the time, her reps released a statement saying that the star had left hospital following the plane incident, and explained that it was due to her busy schedule.
