Adrienne Lois Brown, wife of singer James Brown, died Saturday, two days after undergoing cosmetic surgery. She was 47.

Adrienne Brown collapsed at a Beverly Hills health care facility where she was recovering from surgery.

Scott Carrier, spokesman for the Los Angeles county coroner, said Brown’s death appeared to be a result of natural causes, but he offered no additional details. The type of cosmetic surgery, which took place in a doctor’s office, was not disclosed.

There was nothing to indicate Brown’s death was related to the surgery, said hospital spokeswoman Lisa Gaines.
