Singer Sean Kingston and a female passenger were injured in a Jet Ski accident near Miami and taken to a trauma center Sunday evening, a Florida official said.

Jorge Pino, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said the watercraft apparently crashed when it went under a small bridge about 6 p.m., though officials were still investigating the cause.

Lauren Ceradini, vice president of publicity at Epic Records, said early Monday morning that “Sean is stabilized” and refuted online claims that Kingston had died. Ceradini did not elaborate on Kingston’s condition.

Hip-hop singer Trav, who features Kingston in his latest song, said he visited Kingston at the hospital.

“He is good in stable condition,” Trav told CNN in an e-mail.

Kingston’s publicist at Epic Records, Joseph Carozza, issued a statement Sunday night confirming Kingston “was in an accident.”

“No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well wishes,” the statement said.

Earlier in the day, Kingston posted the following message on his Twitter account, which has more than 1.5 million followers:

“South beach… #nicee… bout to get fresh and cause that movie!!…” this is at

The Miami-born artist’s real name is Kisean Anderson. He changed his name to Kingston to reflect his Jamaican heritage.

Kingston shot to fame in 2007 when his debut song “Beautiful Girls” became a No. 1 hit in the United States.
