(MIAMI) -- Singer Sean Kingston was hospitalized in Miami, Florida Sunday night after a personal watercraft he was riding on crashed into a bridge.

According to ABC News affiliate WPLG-TV in Miami, Kingston collided with the bridge that connects Miami Beach's Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway around 6 p.m.  Upon impact, the 21-year-old singer and a female passenger were ejected from the watercraft and landed in the water, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission spokesman Jorge Pino.

Both Kingston, who's known for his hits "Beautiful Girls" and "Fire Burning," and the passenger were hospitalized with injuries.

The cause of the crash is not yet known, but Pino said, "Nothing at this point would indicate that alcohol played a role in this accident."

An investigation is currently underway.

Zsa Zsa Gabor Hospitalized Again, Says Spokesman

Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to the hospital Tuesday after experiencing breathing problems and spitting up blood, according to a spokesman for the ailing star. Gabor, 94, has been in and out of the hospital since breaking her hip last summer.

The hospitalization comes on the eve of a donation of hundreds of clothing items she wore in film, TV shows and at the Oscars. Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, says the collection will go to The Vera Davis McLendon Youth and Family Center in California. The center is where Gabor did her community service in 1989 for slapping a police officer who had pulled her car over for a license violation.

"Most of the items were only worn a few times and she will never be able to wear them again," von Anhalt said in a press release.

Elizabeth Taylor to Remain in Hospital for Several More Days

Photo Courtesy - Gregg DeGuire/ WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Elizabeth Taylor will remain at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for several more days to be treated for congestive heart failure, her publicist Sally Morrison said Sunday.

Morrison confirmed last week that Taylor, 78, was admitted to the hospital after suffering symptoms from congestive heart failure.  Morrison did not offer details of the treatment and did not know exactly how long Taylor would be in the hospital.

"She had a pretty good day Saturday, and a good night," Morrison said Sunday.  "At this stage, with her history, they're going to want to keep her in for a while just to make sure they've fixed what they needed to fix."

Previously Morrison expressed appreciation for concern from Taylor's fans, but requested privacy for her client while she is being treated.

"Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health," Morrison said in a written statement.

Late Thursday evening, Morrison denied a tabloid report that the screen legend was rushed to the hospital with intense abdominal pain.

"Ms. Taylor was hoping to attend the 25th Anniversary event of AmFAR last night [Wednesday] where she was honored by the organization," read an e-mail to ABC News Thursday on behalf of Morrison.  "Unfortunately, the combination of the unstable weather conditions and the fact that she was feeling under the weather forced her to make the decision not to travel.  A message from Elizabeth was released at the AmFAR event last night."

"It seems that the combination of her non attendance last night, combined with the fact she was photographed last week leaving her dentist's office in a wheelchair, has caused a lot of negative speculation," the statement added.  "Thanks for your concern."

Taylor is a two-time Academy Award-winning actress, who in later life became notorious for her multiple marriages and sometimes eccentric behavior.  She has endured reported health problems in recent years and appeared frail in public appearances.

Elizabeth Taylor Health Scare? Report Raises Alarm

Photo Courtesy - Gregg DeGuire/ WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Elizabeth Taylor's publicist is denying a tabloid report that the screen legend was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital Thursday with intense abdominal pain.

"Ms. Taylor was hoping to attend the 25th Anniversary event of AmFAR last night [Wednesday] where she was honored by the organization," read an e-mail to ABC News late Thursday on behalf of Sally Morrison, Taylor's publicist.  "Unfortunately, the combination of the unstable weather conditions and the fact that she was feeling under the weather forced her to make the decision not to travel.  A message from Elizabeth was released at the AmFAR event last night."

"It seems that the combination of her non attendance last night, combined with the fact she was photographed last week leaving her dentist's office in a wheelchair, has caused a lot of negative speculation," the statement added.  "Thanks for your concern."

Taylor, 78, a two-time Academy Award-winning actress who also gained fame for her multiple marriages and sometimes eccentric behavior, has reported health problems in recent years and appeared frail in public appearances.

However, she was well enough to have a conversation with reality star Kim Kardashian that has been published in Harper's Bazaar.  In fact, on Wednesday, Taylor touted the newly published article on her Twitter feed.

"Our interview in Bazaar came out!" she wrote.  "You look like a princess in Egyptian robes, love!"

In the interview, Taylor talked about her love life, her iconic roles and her jewels.
