Marion 'Suge' Knight appears in court with his Lawyer Matthew P Fletcher for a preliminary hearing in a robbery charge case at Criminal Courts Building on April 8, 2015 in Los Angeles.

Marion "Suge" Knight was reportedly transported from the Los Angeles County Jail -- where's he currently serving a prison sentence -- to a Los Angeles hospital Tuesday morning (April 3), according to TMZ

The reason for Knight's hospitalization is unclear, but the music mogul has been hospitalized several times before for a number of health issues. In May 2017, Knight was rushed to the hospital to treat blood clots, a health condition he's been battling for two years. It was also reported that Knight had an emergency appendix surgery in 2015 and also collapsed in the middle of a court hearing.

In other news, Knight recently lost a member of his defense team just weeks before he was set to appear in court on April 9.

The embattled mogul has been serving time since 2015 and is currently awaiting trial for murder, stemming from a fatal hit-and-run accident in 2015 that resulted in the death of Terry Carter.
