It takes a lot of dedication and loyalty for you to leave your honeymoon with the love of your life to go back and support a friend back home who got into a serious car crash. This is exactly what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did by cutting his honeymoon with Lauren Hashian short so that the could go back and support his friend, Kevin Hart.
Let’s start from the beginning here: Dwayne Johnson had been dating Lauren Hashian exclusively for a few years. The two have two daughters together as well: Jasmine who was born in 2015, and Tiana who was born in the April of last year. Dwayne Johnson is a divorcee with a daughter Simone from his ex wife Dany Garcia. Irrespective of his history and relationships, “The Rock” has been a stellar example to all men of the best kind of partner for his girlfriend and the best kind of father to all three of his daughter. Dwayne Johnson and Lauren Hashian were always couple goals as a dating couple. It was only a matter of time before the two would happily move on to tie the knot with wedding vows.
In an Instagram post after the private wedding ceremony, “The Rock” announced the couple’s newfound marriage status by sharing a few photos of their wedding and captioning it all:
We do. August 18, 2019. Hawaii. Pōmaikaʻi (blessed) @laurenhashianofficial.”
Dwayne Johnson was pictured in a white shirt and white pants combo for his big day while Lauren Hashian wore the most intricately detailed lace white wedding dress, carrying a bouquet of white flowers to go with their all White Island wedding theme.
Congratulations were obviously in order for the couple who ever so secretly managed to pull off a beautiful wedding ceremony and officially tie the knot. Of the well wishers, some notable congratulations came from Kevin Hart and Tom Brady. That said, just some days later, Dwayne Johnson’s friend and well wisher, Kevin Hart got into a serious car crash. The chilling 911 Audio tape is enough to horrify you beyond words.
According to the doctors that responded to his crash scene, he has injured his spine in three different places. Kevin Hart underwent surgery to fuse those segments back together. As per the crash site investigation report, Kevin Hart was not driving under influence. He was not drunk or high on any intoxicating substance. He also did not have any other issue that would deter his ability to drive safely.
It appears that Kevin Hart was not driving, but instead his friend, 40 year old Jared Black was. Jared Black’s fianceé was also present in the car’s back seat. The three were driving down Malibu’s notorious Mulholland Highway when Jared lost control of their car, which they nicknamed Menace. When Jared turned the car from southbound Cold Canyon Road to eastbound Mullholland Highway, he instantly lost control, went off road, and rolled over down the northern embankment. Both Jared and Kevin Hart were badly hurt. Jared’s fianceé was able to get out of the vehicle with less severe injuries and go seek medical help for all.
Kevin Hart was scheduled to appear in Kelly Clarkson‘s new talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, and so Dwayne Johnson cut his honeymoon short to fly back to Los Angeles and make an appearance in place of Kevin Hart after learning about the horrific accident. Kevin Hart has undergone surgery and now needs some time in private and with his family to recover from this traumatic incident and the physical implications it left behind.
On the topic of filling in for Kevin Hart on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Dwayne Johnson tweeted:
When my son @KevinHart4real goes down with an injury, his big daddy steps in. I did leave my honeymoon early (Lauren approved cos she LOVES Kelly) and now me and Kelly are new best friends.”
