Despite past grievances, Bobby Brown reunited with his five New Edition bandmates to hit the road this summer for their All Six reunion tour. But it seems like the full group tour will be cut short, after Bobby suffered a health scare during a concert earlier this month that caused him to return home.

TMZ reported that the 45-year-old singer had “an intrusive medical procedure,” requiring him to leave the tour to be under the care of his doctor. During the group’s show in Southaven, Miss. on July 2, he was seen struggling to catch his breath and keep up with his fellow band members during their onstage dance routine. Bobby later left the stage entirely.

He released a statement apologizing for withdrawing from the tour, saying, “I apologize to the fans of New Edition. I really wanted to be with my brothers, but presently I am unable to give the fans what they typically expect from New Edition.”

The other five members of New Edition will continue with the tour for the remaining 16 shows.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Bobby!
