The health emergency came just days after his younger brother Ray J, 41, raised the alarm over distressing content shared on his Instagram.
In the since-deleted posts, a video showed the star’s legs dangling over a ledge as he asked if he should “just jump”.
Despite the posts, a source told TMZ that Ray J had been drinking at the time and is fine now.
The star uploaded a throwback to her and Ray J on her Instagram shortly after from when they were kids, “Need you bro.”

Earlier in July, Ray J shared a post that showed off a tattoo he got on his leg that depicted his sister.
Speaking to TMZ about the decision to get a tattoo and responding to some of the early backlash he received, the One Wish singer explained, “It’s my leg, it’s my sister.”

Although Brandy herself was ‘a bit uncomfortable’, at first he said, ‘I love my sister and it was just a token of me saying thank you for putting me on. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be here. I’m humbled just that she helps me.
Due to their close relationship, Brandy was quick to express her love for her younger brother following his disturbing messages on Thursday.
“If it wasn’t for 4 my Kidz I would be jumping and dying tonight,” he wrote on a video that showed his view from a high point.
A source told TMZ that he had been drinking when he posted the messages and his wife, Princess Love, eventually persuaded him to delete them.

The TMZ insider further claimed that Ray J — real name William Ray Norwood Jr. — was just “messing around” on social media and didn’t need to go to the hospital.
His original disturbing posts included a photo of his feet hanging over a drop, captioned: ‘SHOULD I JUST JUMP and end it. Now!!! ????’
On his Instagram Stories, he wrote, “Trying to figure out – maybe this life was an illusion – – maybe the next life was my real reality.”
A source claimed he posted the messages while on a trip to Mexico with his wife and their children Melody, four, and Epik, two.
