Sean Kingston‘s condition has been upgraded to serious.
Late last month he was critically injured when his jet ski slammed into a bridge in Miami. His passenger was injured as well.
His representative released a statement saying the hip hop star is breathing on his own and walked for the first time Monday (June 6).
"Sean thanks his friends, family and fans for their outpouring of prayers and well wishes," the statement said.
Kingston is expected to fully recover in about six weeks.
Meantime, according to TMZ, Kingston could be in legal hot water for that crash. WHY? Well the place where the accident happened is a manatee zone and watercrafts are prohibited from the area because they will disturb the manatees.
Kingston could wind up owing a fine of up to $32,500.
