According to, the incident occurred when a red truck rear-ended his bullet proof vehicle and it “almost flipped over”.

50 – whose real name is Curtis Jackson – and was put on a stretcher and taken to the nearby medical facility, along with his driver.

But a source close to the rapper has revealed both the 36-year-old star and his driver are “fine”.

The source told “He’s fine,” and when asked about the driver added: “He’s good.”

It’s not the first time 50 has been at Queens this year after he was previously hospitalised due to a bad bout of food poisoning.

50 said at the time: “Eminem called and said, ‘Man you been shot nine times, don’t f**k around and die over a burger.’

“He called and started making me laugh and s**t, and I wasn’t feeling good. So I just started to laugh, and he cheered me up when I was feeling uncomfortable.”
