Chart-topping hip-hop star Sean Kingston remained hospitalized in intensive care on Monday (May 30), a day after his personal watercraft hit a bridge in Miami Beach, a spokesman for his record label said.





"Sean Kingston is now stabilized and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU," according to a statement from Epic Records. "Sean's family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time."

Kingston, 21, and a female passenger were injured when the watercraft hit the Palm Island Bridge early Sunday evening. They were plucked from the water by a passing boater. The extent of their injuries was not known.

The Jamaican-raised singer first found fame in 2007 with his ubiquitous hit song "Beautiful Girls," which spent four weeks at No. 1 on both the U.S. and UK pop charts.

Last year, Kingston and pop idol Justin Bieber collaborated on the tune "Eenie Meenie." Bieber said on Twitter that he was praying for Kingston, describing him as "a true friend and big bro."
