Rumors are that singer +Bobby Brown has quit the New Edition reunion tour. The R&B singer throws in the towel; Unable to give fans "what they typically expect." Bobby Brown has announced that he will be leaving the current New Edition reunion tour.
The announcement---albeit an unsurprising one---comes just days after footage surfaced online showing a visibly winded Brown, 45, walk off the stage mid-performance during the group's recent concert stop in Mississippi.
In a statement released to fans, the singer wrote: "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."
A spokeswoman for the R&B group said members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant wish Brown a speedy recovery. No other details were provided. "At this time, Bobby needs to put his health first, and we wish him a speedy recovery," read a statement posted on the group's website. "We are giving each and every show all we've got until his return — and will continue giving the fans 110 percent each night."
