The health emergency occurred just days after her younger brother Ray J, 41, raised alarm over distressing content shared on his Instagram.
In the since-deleted posts, one video showed the star’s legs hanging over a ledge, while he asked if he should ‘just jump off.’
Despite the posts, a source informed TMZ that Ray J had been drinking at the time and that he is now doing well.
The star uploaded a throwback of her and Ray J to her Instagram soon after from their childhood, ‘Need you bro.’

I think it’s important for me as an artist, as a vessel to use my music as a way to tell my story.
