Haddish spoke to ET at the Harper's Bazaar ICONS event in New York City, telling the news outlet: "He's OK. He's doing fine. As far as I know, from the last I heard, he's fine."

The Night School actor also pointed out that Hart had mocked her when she was injured herself, saying: "He was making fun of me because I tore my meniscus.

"I was wearing a boot while we were doing press for Secret Life of Pets 2. I had a sleeve on my leg, a brace, and he was making fun of me, talking about, 'Tiffany, you ain't gonna get no man. Ain't no man gonna want you with a brace on your leg. You need to get the surgery.'

"And I said, 'I don't have time to get surgery. I'm gonna let my body do what it do and heal itself.'"

Pointing out that her recovery was now complete, she joked: "And look, I'm rocking high heels and I'm walking. I might walk with a limp, but call me a pimp. And now I'm gonna make fun of you. When you get back, moving good, Kevin, I'm coming for you. I'm coming for your back."

The 40-year-old actor and comedian suffered 'major back injuries' in the incident, which took place in West Valley, California in the early hours of Monday (2 September).

He had been riding as a passenger in one of his cars - a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda - when it crashed from Cold Canyon Road onto Mulholland Highway.

Earlier this week, Hart's wife Eniko spoke also out about his condition, while on her way to visit him at hospital.

In a video obtained by TMZ, shesaid: "He's great, he's going to be just fine."

She added: "He's good. Everybody's good, thank god," but went on to say that he isn't laughing and joking just yet.

After hearing the news, many of Hart's famous friends posted online to show their support, with Hart's Jumanji co-star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson posting a picture of them both from when they were filming the upcoming sequel for the franchise.

He wrote in the caption: "Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real. We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong".

Confirming the incident, a press release from the California Highway Patrol said driver Jared S. Black had 'immediately lost control' of the vehicle, which 'left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment'.

The CHS also said Black was 'determined not to be under the influence of alcohol'.

Hart and Black were taken to nearby hospitals, while another passenger, Rebecca Broxterman, suffered 'only complaint of pain'.

The press release explained: "Two of the three occupants were trapped in the vehicle. The remaining occupant and owner of the vehicle, Kevin Hart, left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention.

"The driver was located in the driver's seat of the vehicle and determined not to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision.

"Hart and Black sustained major back injuries as a result of this collision and were transported and treated at nearby hospitals (Northridge - Hart, UCLA Westwood - Black)."
