The singer Justin Bieber and the actor Chadwick Boseman have joined Dwayne Johnson, David Beckham and other stars in sending messages of support to the 40-year-old, who reportedly suffered major back injuries in the collision.
A California Highway Patrol report said that Hart, who is best known for roles in movies such as Night School, Ride Along and Get Hard, was a passenger in a car that went off Mulholland Highway, in the hills above Malibu, and rolled down an embankment around 12.45am on Sunday.
The report said Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, suffered “major back injuries” and were taken to hospitals. Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.
Bieber tweeted: “KevinHart4real love you man.” Boseman, who starred in Black Panther, posted a photograph of him and Hart together and wrote: “Praying for your recovery brother. God bless you and your family. You got this.”
Dwayne Johnson, aka the Rock, famously has a Hollywood bromance with Hart; the pair have starred together in films including Jumanji and Central Intelligence. Alongside a photograph of the pair from Jumanji, Johnson wrote: “Stop messing with my emotions brother kevinhart4real. We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong.”
David Beckham posted a picture of him and Hart together and wrote: “Hey man this is why we were built for challenges like this... Stay strong good luck with the recovery.” He added: “Love to the family and anything you need I’m right here... Much love DB.”
