The health emergency occurred just days after her younger brother Ray J, 41, raised alarm over distressing content shared on his Instagram last week.
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 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.’
The two siblings have been known for their close bond and have supported each other throughout the years.
Earlier in July, Ray J shared a post that showed off a tattoo he got on his leg which depicted his sister.
When talking to TMZ about the decision to get the tattoo and responding to some of the initial backlash he received, the One Wish singer explained, ‘It’s my leg, it’s my sister.’
