This is terrifying. A new report claims that Prince Jackson — son of the late Michael Jackson — is being hospitalized following a motorcycle accident. Fortunately, the 20-year-old is doing well following the incident and even returned to class on Thursday at Loyola Marymount University.
According to TMZ, Prince rode his bike down an LA street in the rain and lost control of his bike. The eldest Jackson child was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was cleared from any injuries. Prince shared a photo from the experience on his Instagram account with his 353,000 followers, where his legs are strapped up in the back of an ambulance. “Well s–t,” he captioned the image.
Fans were quick to fill his comments section with well wishes — though many seemingly did not approve of his decision to use a motorcycle. “Hope you are alright. When I saw you get one I was surprised, LA is way to crazy and full of bad drivers,” one user wrote.
A second user shared, “You better not have gotten into an accident with that motorcycle of yours, Prince,” while a third chimed in with, “Speedy recovery and hope all is ok. Not going to ask hows the bike….” As of now, Prince and his family members have yet to further address the incident.
Prince returned to the spotlight back in May when he presented at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, where he honored his father by wearing one of his necklaces. “I think it’s an honor to be here because I’m proud of the success my father created on his own and what he worked and built himself up to be,” he told E! News at the time. To see everybody here that is either inspired by him or they want to pursue the same goal, it’s inspiring to me and to future generations.”
We are glad he was unharmed and hope this never happens again!
