According to the Epilepsy Foundation, a non-epileptic seizure is considered to be of a "psychological rather than physical origin."

In a statement issued by Brown's reps, "... His doctor attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity."
