LOS ANGELES - Rap mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight was taken to hospital Thursday shortly before he was due to appear in court, in the second such incident in weeks, his lawyer said. The 49-year-old had been due to be arraigned over allegedly robbing a camera from a photographer, in a case separate from a murder and attempted murder charges he faces. The exact reason for his new hospitalization was not immediately clear, but local media said he had complained of stomach pains after being transferred from jail to the courthouse.

His lawyer David Kenner told the TMZ celebrity news website that Knight had been dealing with bleeding in the stomach.
