What was supposed to be a wellness treatment for Brandy's mom, Sonja Norwood, turned out to be an emergency crisis!

Sonja went in for a vitamin treatment, after which she developed a severe reaction and had to be rushed to the emergency room by her son Ray J. The mother-of-two, who is a talent agent and producer, hopped in on the wellness trend that has experienced huge patronage from celebs and Hollywood A-listers over the years.

The 72-year-old reportedly felt light-headed after receiving an essential vitamins and nutrients IV at home. Things went south as soon as the procedure, which was meant to go straight into her bloodstream, ended, and she requested to lie down due to increased breathing.

Her reaction prompted her son, Ray J, to call for an ambulance, after which she was taken to the hospital and subsequently discharged upon treatment. The intravenous therapy administered to her was a mix of Vitamins C, B, calcium, and magnesium, which was meant to boost her immune system.

However, the side effects of this treatment involve infections, rashes, blood clots, air embolism, and a host of others. Per TMZ, Sonja is not the only celeb to have suffered a bad reaction after the treatment. In 2018, Kendall Jenner was also rushed to the emergency room following her reaction to the vitamin drip.

The entertainment mogul has been in the game for over two decades and has worked with her two children, Brandy and Ray J. She later became the CEO of Norwood & Norwood Entertainment, which she ran alongside her husband Willie.

Together, they managed talents like Silk and Bebe Winans and most recently co-created the "Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business" reality show that aired on VH1 alongside another hit show titled "For the Love of Ray J."

However, she took things a step further in 2019 by launching the Norwood Talent Agency, which housed 62 bubbling talent. The company is also co-owned by Brandy's dad, Willie Norwood, and entertainment guru Rayva Harrell, who was the brain behind Nickelodeon's "All That" and "The Steve Harvey Morning Show."

The company began operations in March 2019 and has recorded impressive bookings like a feature film role for Orlando Brown of "That's So Raven." The mom of two revealed to Backstage that she hoped "to build the agency and develop a great children's department for commercial, film, and voiceover work." She further explained

"We're looking to represent actors and actresses and hope to get some triple threats -- singers, actors and dancers -- on our roster. I'm really interested in finding those diamonds in the rough with untapped raw talent."

Sonja continued that she treats her clients like her family and makes sure each one has the opportunity. The whole process has been a learning curve for the celeb, who added:

"I've been lucky enough to have other agencies give me some pointers but I'm always trying to continuously educate myself."

Well, the apple certainly does not fall far from the tree as Brandy shared the release date for her first-ever holiday album to celebrate the magic of the yuletide season with her fans and lovers. The 44-year-old, who has a sterling music career, shared that the album would be released on November 10 via Motown Records.

This new project marks the end of her almost three-year musical album hiatus since her 2020 album "B7." Brandy announced this heartwarming news on her Instagram, accompanying it with the caption:

"For all my beautiful fans, my new album ‘Christmas With Brandy’ comes out November 10. I feel so blessed to be able to create an album surrounding joy, Family, love, and quality divine time with the ones you love. Pre-order the album now, link in my bio and stories. Love, Brandy ♥️."

Her teeming fans rushed to her comment section to express their excitement, including friend and fellow singer Monica Denise, who dropped many fire emojis as Yebba Smith added, "Thank you God!!!!! 😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️."

The "Piano Man" singer was also previously rushed to a local hospital after she reportedly suffered a seizure at her home in Los Angeles. Per The Blast, law enforcement officers received a panic call around noon and rushed to the scene.

However, the "Fall" star addressed the matter on her social media and expressed gratitude to her followers by writing, "To my beloved fam, friends, and stars, thank you for sending love and light my way. I am following doctors' orders and getting the rest I need due to dehydration and low amounts of nutrition. Thank you for your prayers and support. Grateful for you all."
