Tiffany Haddish Gives Update On Kevin Hart, ‘He’s Already Walking’
Tiffany Haddish has given the latest on comedian Kevin Hart’s condition. Hart was involved in a serious car accident that landed him in the hospital and caused him to undergo back surgery earlier this month.
Now, Haddish, who co-starred with Hart in Night School in 2018 and Secret Life of Pets 2 this year, has said that Hart is recovering well.
She said during an event Friday Saturday (Sept. 6),
“He’s OK. He’s doing fine. As far as I know, from the last I heard, he’s fine.”
She added that he’s making lots of progress.
“He’s already walking. He’s good.”
But in true Haddish fashion, she couldn’t resist telling a joke, pointing out that Hart previously poked fun at her when she injured herself recently.
“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.'”
Now that the tables have turned, Haddish added,
“And look, I’m rocking high heels and I’m walking. I might walk with a limp, but call me a pimp,” she jokingly added before sending Hart a message. “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.”
“He has a long road of recovery ahead but is doing well and [Hart] hopes he will be released from the hospital soon.
“Kevin’s spinal injuries are very serious, he sustained several fractures and had no choice but to have surgery as soon as possible. Since the surgery he has been heavily sedated. The physicians are doing everything they can to keep him out of pain.”
As for his family, the source said they’re still coming to terms with everything.
“The family isn’t ready to talk about it and want privacy at the moment. They also don’t want people to worry, so [his wife] Eniko has put on a strong face and is saying he is doing well, but it’s very serious. He has suffered a great deal and has a long road ahead.”
