Suge Knight was hospitalized early this weekend after passing out twice behind bars — once in his jail cell and another time while getting an X-ray.

According to TMZ, sources close to the rap mogul reported that he was taken to the medical ward after the first episode, and fainted shortly following his arrival. Knight's attorney says that he was transferred to a local hospital for treatment.

It has also been reported that Knight now suffers from a blood clot in his lung. He has been on a heavy dosage of blood thinners since getting shot six times in August outside of a West Hollywood nightclub where Chris Brown was hosting a party. He was unable to take his medicine while behind bars, which apparently caused the clot.

Knight and Katt Williams were both taken to jail last week for robbery after a female paparazzo claimed they stole her camera.
