TMZ has gotten hold of a video showing R&B singer Sean Kingston bumping his $400,000 Maybach into another expensive car parked behind him this weekend.

Leaving the Colony nightclub in Hollywood Monday night, he left this time in a Rolls Royce, when a TMZ reporter approached him about the small accident to which he responded, "I didn't do no hit and run."

Although not entirely clear, the original TMZ video reported the accident shows what appeared to be Kingston tapping the other car as he tries to squeeze out of a tight spot in front of the Geisha House restaurant.

Kingston did not leave his vehicle to survey any possible damages sustained to both vehicles.

The 21-year-old was in a severe jet-ski accident May 29, 2011, which left him hospitalized and in need of an open-heart surgery.

The incident occurred in Miami, Fla. at approximately 6 p.m. EST. Other injuries included a broken jaw, fractured wrist, and water in the lungs.

Now in good health, Kingston also has lost 45 pounds and plans to lose more.

Sean Kingston was born in Florida, but moved to Jamaica when he was six – where he was raised and went to school.

The singer was arrested at age 11 for breaking and entering and spent 21 days in jail.

Kingston got his act together and due to his persistence was able to land a record deal after constantly contacting Tommy Rotem at Beluga Heights Records through Myspace.

Originally a rapper, it was Rotem that lead Kingston to find his "voice."

He signed a joint deal between Epic and Koch Records and released his self-titled debut with smash single "Beautiful Girls."

Kingston was nominated for a 2008 Image Award for "Outstanding New Artist," won a MOBO Award for "Best Reggae Acts," and was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards winning one for 2007's Choice R&B Track "Beautiful Girls."
