Kevin Hart, 40, was injured in a bad car accident over the weekend in California — and other celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to share condolences, lend support and deliver messages of friendship and healing.
Hart was traveling as a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it veered off Mulholland Highway — and plunged down an embankment at around 12:45 a.m. on Sunday, according to California Highway Patrol and as reported by multiple outlets.
The actor and comedian suffered “major back injuries,” as did the driver, Jared Black.
Both were transported to the hospital.
The driver reportedly was not under the influence of alcohol.
Another passenger in the car was not apparently badly injured.
Dwayne ‘”The Rock” Johnson, who starred with Hart in several films, tends to use his social media accounts to “take playful shots at his co-star, often joking about his height. For example, Johnson shared a photo of his newborn baby with Hart’s face photoshopped onto it,” as Fox News reported.
But this time, Johnson on Monday shared a note wishing the actor well after this frightening incident.
“Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real. We have a lot more laughing to do together,” Johnson wrote on his Instagram account on Monday. “Love you man. Stay strong.” With that note, he shared a photo of the two of them on the set of the latest “Jumanji” film.
Johnson is a former WWE wrestler who recently “quietly retired” from wrestling.
He’s married and has two children with his wife and longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian. He also has an older child as well.
Other stars have been sharing messages of support, hope and love for Hart — who is the father of three children — as well.
