Kevin Hart's friends do not fear he'll never recover from the injuries he sustained in a car crash earlier this month, despite a false report. Although the comedy star suffered major back injuries in the accident, he's on the mend and his condition is improving. Gossip Cop can confirm that his inner circle isn't worried otherwise.
Hart was involved in a major car accident over Labor Day weekend when his vehicle went off the road and crashed into a ditch on Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles. The comedian was in the front passenger seat of the car, which was being driven by his friend. Hart sustained major back injuries in the crash and spent 10 days in the hospital before being released earlier this week. He underwent back surgery while in the hospital and is currently recovering in a rehab facility.
The National Enquirer is exploiting the situation by wrongly reporting that Hart's pals "fear he may never fully recover." A doctor who hasn't treated the actor is quoted as saying, "Back surgery has a high failure rate. There are so many different structures in the spine which can leave lasting damage or pain." Once again, this medical professional has never met Hart and knows nothing about his condition.
On the flip side, Hart's wife Eniko is optimistic about his recovery, telling TMZ on Thursday that he'll be "just fine" and "back on track in no time." Also this week, Hart's close friend Dwayne Johnson gave an update on his condition during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The movie star said, "Everything is good, I spoke with Kevin, I actually refer to him as my son." He added, "We spoke to his pediatrician and he's doing very well."
Meanwhile, the president of the comedian's company HartBeat Productions said in a statement that Hart is "doing fine" following his back surgery and is "expected to have a full recovery very soon." It's safe to say that Hart's wife, his close friend and his colleague know more about his condition than the Enquirer and a random doctor who's never met the comedian.
In addition to all of these people in Hart's inner circle saying he's doing well, Gossip Cop also checked in with a source close to the comedian, who tells us the tabloid's report is untrue. No one close to Hart fears he's never going to recover. The unreliable outlet is simply trying to capitalize on the comedian's car accident.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
