Bobby Brown denied Wednesday that he had a mild heart attack, something his attorney said earlier he had suffered this week in Los Angeles. The 38-year-old singer told Associated Press Radio that he is feeling fine and went to the hospital just for a checkup. "None of it's true," Brown said. "I went in for a checkup. The doc gave me a clean bill of health."

His account differed from that of his Atlanta attorney, Phaedra Parks, who earlier in the day told The Associated Press that Brown had severe chest pains Tuesday night and was taken to two hospitals. "This morning they did diagnose him as suffering from a mild heart attack ... they attributed to stress and diet," Parks said, noting that she had spoken with him. She said Brown was released Wednesday morning from a hospital in good condition.

Parks could not be reached for comment after Brown made his statements. She did not immediately respond to a telephone and an e-mail message.

Brown, who has a performance scheduled Saturday in Los Angeles, said that the reports about him having a heart attack gave him a "jolt" and that he felt he had to speak out. "I did go to the hospital ... to just get a checkup, get everything tested out so that I could go on this tour, and everything is fine," Brown said. "I don't know where the heart attack thing came from," Brown said. "I got my heart and everything checked out earlier this morning, and I'm just fine."


From the looks of things, that black cloud that has been hovering her Bobby Brown's head refuses to go anywhere anytime soon. However, Bobby Brown's in high spirits and hopes to perform this weekend after suffering a mild heart attack Tuesday, says his lawyer, Phaedra Parks. Brown's girlfriend/manager, Alicia, drove the 38-year-old singer to Tarzana Regional Medical Center after the singer, who is now living with his father in Tarzana, California, felt tightening in his chest and tingling in his arm. "He has been examined, and doctors determined there is no blockage but inflammation of the heart." Parks says. Parks also said Brown's doctors attributed the singer's 'heart attack scare' was brought on by 'stress and diet.' Mmmm-hmmm. I guess they chose to overlook the fact that Brown also has a lengthy history of chronic drug and alcohol abuse. Several years ago, Bobby said that he had been diagnosed as being bi-polar. Man, you ain't bi-polar. Your ass buy weed, crack rocks 8 balls, and liquor.

Anyway, Brown, spoke to Lee Bailey of EURWEB from his hospital bed Wednesday afternoon before being released. "Everything's all right with me. I got a clean bill of health and everything's fine," he says. "I'm ready to get on this road and do these shows and take care of what I gotta take care of." I know that's right. Cause Lord knows you need the money.

Brown, who had not experienced heart problems before, is booked to perform at the V100 Taste of Soul concert and festival in Los Angeles on October 13th and still planned to take the stage. However, Parks says it isn't clear yet if he will be able to do so. "We thank everybody for their thoughts and prayers. We really appreciate the outpouring of support."

In addition to his new medical problem, Brown is in the midst of an ongoing divorce and custody proceeding with Whitney Houston, 44. The two are expected in an Orange County, Calif., court on Oct. 22.
