Recording artiste Samantha J has been forced to take a break from performing for the rest of summer after being badly hurt in an accident in Belize.

The model, singer and songwriter told The STAR that she fell down a flight of stairs, which left her with a broken jaw, a few broken teeth and bruises all over her body.

"I'll be back like nothing happened, soon," said Samantha J told The STAR via instant messaging as she made her way to a hospital in Belize Saturday.

The artiste, 21, whose given name is Samantha Gonsalves, had travelled to Belize to perform during the country's Costa Maya Festival, one of biggest cultural events of the year.

The 'Tight Skirt' singer has expressed appreciation to persons who have reached out to her to offer words of encouragement, even as she faces an uncertain future.

"I don't know how long I'll be unable to be Samantha J, but I do know that it's just going to take some time to recuperate," she said.
