Bobby Brown was resting at his New Jersey home after being released from the hospital for treatment of an infection, a family spokeswoman said.

The 33-year-old singer was traveling through Virginia with his wife, Whitney Houston, in their tour bus when they stopped at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg last week, said Nancy Seltzer, a Los Angeles publicist.

At the time, Brown, formerly of the group New Edition, and Houston were returning home from Atlanta, where Houston was recording an album.

Seltzer said Monday that Brown had a fever, but she declined to specify the nature of the infection.

Brown, admitted Wednesday, was treated intravenously with an antibiotic and released Friday, Seltzer said. He continued taking oral antibiotics during his recuperation at home, she added.
