The 82-year-old is serving nine life sentences.

Charles Manson is gravely ill and has been moved from Corcoran State Prison to an unidentified hospital, according to multiple reports.

Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, could not confirm to The Hollywood Reporter whether the cult leader, whose followers committed multiple high-profile murders decades ago, had been moved, due to "medical privacy and security" reasons. However, she did say that if Manson dies, that will become public information after next of kin is notified.

The 82-year-old is serving nine life sentences for his part in the 1969 Manson Family murders.

Manson has been denied parole more than 10 times throughout the years.
