Kevin Hart Reportedly Near Leaving Hospital, Facing Extensive Physical Therapy

Nine days.

That’s how long Kevin Hart has been in the hospital after he was in a car accident in Malibu, California, on Sept 1. But he’ll soon be heading to an inpatient physical therapy facility.

According to reports, the 40-year-old could start the sessions on either Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on what the doctors say, and he’ll be there for up to two weeks before going home. It’s also been said the comedian is incredibly anxious to get out of the hospital.

So far Hart has gotten some physical therapy inside the hospital, where he’s already taken some steps and climbed a short number of stairs. But the therapy he’ll undergo at the facility next week will be far more comprehensive.

Hart was in the passenger seat of his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when his friend Jared Black drove off the road and careened into a fence.

According to reports, the “Jumanji” actor then went to the hospital with three spinal fractures and had to quickly undergo surgery.

Black was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center, and his fiancée Rebecca Broxterman, who was in the back seat, walked away with minor injuries. Broxterman is the trainer of Hart’s wife Eniko Parrish.

On Friday, Hart’s friend and “Night School” co-star Tiffany Haddish spoke about his condition and said, “He’s doing fine.” She also anticipates a speedy recovery.

“We’ll be starring in movies together. He’ll be back up and at ’em. He’s already walking. He’s good,” Haddish told “Entertainment Tonight.”

But a source for ET said Hart’s injuries are far more serious than people are letting on, including Haddish. And he’s been heavily medicated to help deal with pain.

That same insider said Hart’s family is also downplaying the seriousness of his injuries so people don’t start worrying.
