It has emerged that comedian and actor, Kevin Hart will require at least four months to recover fully from the injuries he sustained from his recent car accident, ABC News can report.
This means that the celebrated actor cannot take up any new work until the four months recovery period reported by sources close to the actor had elapsed.
The 40-year-old actor was admitted to hospital earlier this month after he was involved in a car accident which left him with three fractures in his spine, and after undergoing surgery, he is set to be released from hospital this week.
Kevin is believed to be leaving hospital today and according to The Blast, he will have a back brace fitted for support, and will need “round-the-clock” medical support as he continues to recover at home.
The ‘Night School’ star is said to already be walking again thanks to his successful surgery, and so won’t require a wheelchair to aid his mobility.
It has also been reported that Kevin will need to return to the hospital as an out-patient three times a week to make sure he is recovering properly.
Recently, Kevin’s close associate, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson said the actor was a “lucky man” following his accident, as his injuries could have been “a lot worse”.
“Everything is good. I spoke with Kevin and I actually refer to him as my son. I connected with him today,” he said.
“And you know what? These things happen in life and thankfully he was strapped in nicely to his car seat,” he added.
