Sean Kingston in Hospital -- Awake & Alert

6/3/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Kingston still has a breathing tube in his mouth so he can't talk -- but sources close to the singer tell TMZ, he's awake and alert in his hospital bed ... and he's getting better every day.

According to sources, Sean's friends and family have been inundating his hospital room in Miami since the accident -- and the "Beautiful Girls" singer is communicating through nods and sign language.

It's a big improvement since the day of his jet ski crash on Sunday -- when his injuries were so bad, he had to be treated in the trauma ward ... before he was transferred to the ICU.

Last we checked, Kingston was still in critical condition -- and doctors expect to keep him hospitalized for another couple of weeks.

There's a problem here    

Why did you photoshop a picture and put it there? Now you got a lot of people thinking that's what the dude is looking like in his recovery. It ain't. Your story sounds like he's still intubated, which wouldn't be surprising due to the injuries he sustained, so why not just post a regular pic of the guy instead of this hack photoshop job? A lot of your peeps reading this think you're serious with this pic. Harvey, this is where your money is, so can't you even try to have a modi*** of responsiblity to your readers?

Your spellcheck is rated for morons Harv. The whole word is m-o-d-i-c-u-m, a word a high school graduate would know, not c.u.m. a word any moron would know and use.

My sincerest wishes goes out to Sean.

As for TMZ...did you really need to photoshop a bobble-head pic of Mr Kingston. We all know you have access to archived photos, WHY would you do this to him & make him look ridiculous! You're disgusting & have no compassion

wouldn't having a tube in your throat while awake make you have gag reflexes?? shouldn't he be in an induced coma?

She's baaaack    

@Melisa ... he doesn't have a tube "in his mouth," he's intubated. His airway is being maintained by a tube in his trachea, his vocal cords and gag reflexes are on vacation at the moment. He is almost surely still in some mild form of sedation. A little education goes a long way, dear.

@She's baaaack

If you read the article carefully it says "Sean Kingston still has a breathing tube in his mouth..." and "he's awake and alert in his hospital bed". You see, "alert and awake" and "mild form of sedation" are kind of contradicting statements.
And I fail to understand how my comment makes me seem uneducated, compared to everyone else who was wondering about the veracity of the clearly photoshopped picture.
And I'm a science grad student, I think I have plenty of education.
GOOD DAY SIR.
