Singer Brandy is resting following a health scare on a flight from Los Angeles Friday.

The star’s representatives said in a statement on Instagram that Brandy had been recording at the studio all night Thursday until she needed to catch an early flight the morning of June 2. It was to be the next in more than 10 flights Brandy has taken in the past several days as part of a tour.

“The stress of all of the traveling and working so incessantly has exhausted her,” the rep said. “She will be relaxing for the next few days.”

Paramedics received a call about an “unconscious or almost unconscious” passenger, according to a report by the Los Angeles World Airports police. The passenger was removed from a flight from Los Angeles International Airport to JFK International Airport in New York, Delta confirmed in a statement.

“The flight crew … returned to the gate, prior to departure, after a customer fell ill on board,” said the statement, which didn’t name the passenger. “Medical personnel met the flight and transported the customer to a local hospital.”
