Brown’s departure also came on the heels of a tell-tale concert video showing the “Every Little Step” singer struggling to keep up with choreography.

Despite rumblings of a relapse, Brown’s ex Kim Ward, with whom he has Bobby Jr. and 23-year-old daughter La’Princia, tells the rumors simply aren’t true.

“It has nothing to do with him relapsing. It’s definitely about his health,” she insists. “It’s a serious health issue.”

“He did have a medical procedure in Atlanta,” a source confirms to, adding that the star underwent a heart stenting procedure.

Brown,  to manager Alicia Etheredge, had a very public struggle with heroin, crack and cocaine, and last sought treatment in 2012 after being arrested for driving under the influence.

Brown and Whitney Houston's turbulent marriage and substance abuse troubles were publicized on his reality show Being Bobby Brown in 2005. Houston famously succumbed to her addiction demons at 48, five years after their 2007 divorce.

While Brown is on the mend, his 21-year-old daughter with Houston,Bobbi Kristina, has concerned family members with her own drug problems.

“When you love someone everything concerns you, so the fact of the matter is we have to get to the bottom of it,” Bobbi Kristina’s uncle Gary Houston recently told “I have to find out for myself. I’m in the process of investigating it now.”
