In a recent Instagram post, Kevin Hart revealed that he will need to rely on a wheelchair for the near future due to tearing multiple muscles in a friendly footrace against former NFL player Stevan Ridley. The 44-year-old comedian shared how the unfortunate incident occurred after they debated over who was faster, with Hart claiming he is pretty fast while Ridley challenged him.

The latest: Kevin Hart, 44, says he will have to use a wheelchair for the foreseeable future after he tore multiple muscles while in a footrace against former NFL running back Stevan Ridley, 34

In the most recent news, Kevin Hart, 44, revealed that he will need a wheelchair for some time due to tearing multiple muscles during a footrace with former NFL player Stevan Ridley, 34. The Die Hart actor humorously expressed his frustration, admitting that he couldn’t walk and needed to sit down after tearing muscles in his lower abdomen and abductors. Despite not knowing exactly what abductors are, Hart acknowledged that he underestimated the physical toll of his age, stating that turning 40 was indeed a reality check. Reflecting on the incident, he confessed that attempting to compete in such activities at his age was foolish and admitted to being the “dumbest man alive.” With this setback, Hart emphasized the importance of respecting one’s age and accepting limitations, especially after previously suffering injuries in a car crash in 2019. As he faces another recovery process, Hart humorously concluded his social media post by calling himself out for his reckless behavior and acknowledging the need to take a break.
