They’re best mates.

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart suffered “major back injuries” in a car crash near Malibu last week.

According to a California Highway Patrol report, Kevin Hart and the driver, Jared Black, sustained major injuries in the crash and were transported to hospital for treatment.

Dwayne Johnson has now given an update on Kevin, saying that he is doing well.

Speaking on the premiere episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, Dwayne said: “Everything is good, I spoke with Kevin, I actually refer to him as my son. I connected with him today.”

“And you know what? These things happen in life and thankfully he was strapped in nicely to his car seat. That’s real love.”

The Rock ended his honeymoon early to come home and step in for Kevin as he was scheduled to appear on numerous talk shows.

“I love the guy, he’s one of my best friends,” Dwayne said. “And honestly, I mean, thank God, it could’ve been a lot worse. So, he’s a lucky man, and he knows it too. I wish him the best and a speedy recovery and I’m gonna see him soon.”
