Singer Sean Kingston and a female passenger were injured in a jet ski accident on Sunday at Miami Beach and taken to Jackson Ryder Trauma Center.

Jorge Pino of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the watercraft apparently crashed at about six p.m. A passing boat witnessed the accident and took the two on board until medical help arrived, The Miami Herald reports. While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, authorities said there was no indication of the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Early Monday morning, Lauren Ceradini, vice president of publicity at Epic Records, said Kingston’s condition had stabilized, and he had been moved to the intensive care unit at a hospital in Florida, refuting online claims that Kingston had died. Ceradini did not elaborate on Kingston's condition. Kingston's publicist at Epic Records, Joseph Carozza, issued a statement Sunday night confirming the accident, “No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well wishes,” he said.

On Twitter, Justin Bieber came out in support of Kingston. “Got my friend Sean Kingston in my prayers tonight,” Bieber tweeted on Monday. “A true friend and big bro. Please keep him in your prayers tonight as well.” Rihanna followed suit, tweeting, “Sean, we're praying for you, baby.”

The Miami-born artist’s (whose real name is Kisean Anderson) claim to fame came in 2007 when his debut song “Beautiful Girls” became a number one hit in the United States.
