Bobby Brown Hospitalized, Still Plans To Hit Studio With P. Diddy

R&B singer diagnosed with mild infection, spokesperson says.

"Humpin' Around" don Bobby Brown was told to take it easy for a few days after he checked into a hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia, on Tuesday afternoon.

Brown was diagnosed with a mild infection and treated intravenously with antibiotics. He is set to be released on Thursday.

The 33-year-old singer and his wife, Whitney Houston, were traveling from Atlanta — where Houston was recording her new album — to their home in Menden, New Jersey, when a high fever forced Brown to stop their tour bus and seek medical attention, according to a family spokesperson.

When Brown finally makes it home, he'll jump right into the studio to appear on a track with P. Diddy and Lil' Jon & the East Side Boyz for Lil' Jon's upcoming release.

B. Brown will then begin filming his part in an independent film titled "Biscuits and Gravy" with director Jean Claude La Marre. Brown previously appeared with Pras and LisaRaye in La Marre's 2001 indie, "Go for Broke."

The singer declined to join his former boy-band cronies for the New Edition 2002 tour, which kicks off in Las Vegas next Friday and runs until mid-August (see "New Edition Still Kickin' It Old School, 'Cept For Bobby").
