Kevin Hart Is 'Already Walking' Following Car Accident, Says Tiffany Haddish
Kevin Hart was involved in a serious car accident earlier this week, but according to fellow actor Tiffany Haddish, his recovery is going well - she claims he's 'doing fine' and is 'already walking'.
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."
She added: "He's already walking. He's good," although she did also admit that Hart's 'back gonna hurt'.
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.
