Kevin Hart has issued a heartbreaking statement after he was left unable to walk.
One of the best actors and comedians in the world, the 44-year-old star is known for his comedy films which feature Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
But Hart has sustained serious injuries after trying to do things that he was able to accomplish when he was younger.
Taking to social media to explain why he ended up in a wheelchair, Hart said: “Ladies and gentlemen, the age 40 is real. To all my men and women out there who are 40 years old and above, it’s not a game.
“Respect that age, respect that age, or that age will make you respect it. I was just forced to respect it.”
He continued: “This is a public service announcement because I know people may see me out and I don’t want you to be alarmed, but I’m in a wheelchair.”
The incident happened when the comedian joined a competition with former NFL star Stevan Ridley. They settled a friendly dispute through a race and Hart confidently accepted the challenge.
“I was pretty fast,” the 44-year-old recalled.
But his speed resulted in a far more serious outcome. “Guys, I blew all of my s***. Tore my lower abdomen, my adductors, I tore them.
“I don’t even know what that is, but I tore them. Tore those two. I can’t walk, sit my a** down. This is 44.”
Even though it was obvious that he was frustrated with his current situation, he blamed his own decision-making for the incident.
“What are we competing for at this age, what am I doing? Why did I even race? Stupidest s***, and now I can’t walk ’cause I’m somewhere trying to get the title of the fastest at the barbecue,” he added.
