Sunday May 29, Beautiful Girls singer Sean Kingston ended up fighting for his life in a Miami hospital following a jet ski accident. Today Kingston is in critical but stable condition. He is expected to make a full recovery in 6 weeks.
Kingston’s hospitalization resulted in an outpouring of support by both his fans and peers on Twitter. Many of the singer’s fellow stars, from Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, to LL Cool J and tour mate Justin Bieber, have tweeted messages for the singer.
Bieber wrote: “got my friend @seankingston in my prayers tonight. A true friend and big bro. please keep him in your prayers tonight as well.” The teen idol, who joined forces with the 21-year-old Kingston for last year’s smash “Eenie Meenie,” said that fans keep asking him for the latest, but he would defer to Kingston’s relatives. “He is doing better but out of respect to his family I will wait for them to comment. I will continue to pray and support my friend.”
Sean Kingston’s female jet ski passenger, who has been identified as longtime friend Cassandra Sanchez, tells TMZ Sean was driving “REALLY fast” when they crashed into a bridge this weekend … and insists she begged him to slow down before the accident. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
