50 Cent 'Doing Fine' After Car Accident

Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, is recuperating after being hospitalized following a car accident in New York.

“Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson was involved in a car accident in New York early Tuesday morning. He was taken to New York Hospital Queens where he was treated for minor neck and back injuries,” a rep for the rapper said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

According to ThisIs50.com – which published photos of Jackson being taken to the hospital on a stretcher wearing a neck brace – the rapper’s SUV was rear-ended by a truck on the Long Island Expressway.

Jackson’s driver was also reportedly treated for injuries.

Despite his harrowing morning, the rapper is on the mend.

”[Jackson] was released this morning and is doing fine,” the rep’s statement continued.
