Jackson was a passenger in a black Jaguar that T-boned an SUV, according to TMZ.


He reportedly experienced chest pains after the auto accident and was seen wincing in pain after making his way to a nearby Panda Express.


A photo published by the celebrity gossip site showed Jackson on a gurney. He concluded the post to his website to say he and his assistant had left the medical center and were going out to lunch.


Jackson has been hospitalized multiple times in recent years, including after suffering strokes in 2012 and 2015.
