Kevin Hart Admits After Car Accident He Lied & Pretended To Be Better: I Didn’t Want Them To Know I Was Having Pain
Comedian/actor Kevin Hart was involved in a serious car accident in 2019 after his friend, Jared Black, lost control of his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda while driving.
According to reports, the accident caused 3 fractures to Kevin Hart’s spine. However, the Think Like A Man actor recently shared that his injuries were way more serious than the initial reports detailed. Kevin Hart recently revealed that in addition to spine fractures he also had to have his spine fused. Kevin also said that while hospitalized, he would lie about his pain levels so he wouldn’t be stopped from working towards his recovery.
“I lied in the hospital because I didn’t want them to know that I was having pain because I thought that they were gonna stop me from letting me continue to try my walks.”
His main goal was to make sure that he made it back home to his family.
“”My biggest cry in life came from the first day that I came home from the hospital, because I never had to see that house again. There was an option of me never seeing that home again. There was an option of me never walking on that driveway again. There was an option of me never seeing my wife and my kids again.”
For many people it can be hard to see anything ‘good’ coming from such a tragic event but Kevin appears to have found his silver lining.
“When you come close to that light and if you are fortunate enough to come back to that light, you value life differently. There are no bad days for me.”
And it was his family who came together to help him through recovery. He added,
“My son doubled as nurse, my daughter doubled as nurse, [my wife] Eniko doubled as it. My brother came. That’s when the care about what was important really changed … the things that you think are important, you get to looking around at a hospital, almost four walls — none of that s— that you think is important is in there. It’s one of these people.”
He continued and opened up about his new perspective on life:
“It’s not until you get close to that light that you truly respect, that I respect that there are no bad days. Miss me with any bullsh*t. I’m smiling because I have no reason to be angry because I don’t have to be here.”
