Miley Cyrus' Brother Braison Hospitalized

18-year-old suffered severe bleeding as a result of a previous surgery.

Miley Cyrus' 18-year-old brother, Braison, was hospitalized over the weekend with severe bleeding. According to tweets by the teen and his dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, he has now been released from Providence Saint Joseph Hospital in Los Angeles, where he was treated.

Braison began tweeting about being at the hospital on Saturday, sharing that a previous tonsil surgery led to his most recent hospitalization. "Thank you everyone for the twitter love. Ive made a full recovery. Y'all are good folks. Thanks for giving a damn," he wrote. "Thanks to good doctors."

Days prior to the hospitalization, Braison wrote, "Just swallowed a ton of my own blood and now I feel sick."

A photo of Braison in his hospital bed holding a bucket of blood was reportedly tweeted out by him but appears to have since been scrubbed from his account.

Billy Ray later tweeted, "Thanking God and all the fine doctors nurses and staff at Providence Saint Joseph hospital. Been a wild 24 hours but bringing my son home."

Miley Cyrus later retweeted her dad's message. And perhaps due to an incident related to her brother's medical scare, Miley also tweeted her distaste for the paparazzi, who had been camped outside her home on Sunday as her brother was recovering.

"How is it legal for men I've never seen before to sit in front of my house and then follow me around!" she wrote. "So shady and scary."
