Why Kevin Hart Didn’t Reveal His COVID-19 Diagnosis Until Now
Actor Kevin Hart has a surprise confession to make!
During a stand-up set at Dave Chappelle's comedy show “An Intimate Socially Distanced Affair,” Hart revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year.
According to Page Six, he said, “The problem is that I had it around the same time as Tom Hanks. And I couldn't say anything because he's more famous than I am.”
Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson announced their diagnosis in March. At the time, Hanks posted an image of a rubber glove discarded in a medical-waste bag, along with the message, "Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive."
Around the same time of Hart's diagnosis, Kevin's wife Eniko Parrish broke the news that she was expecting their second child. Along with a pic of her baby bump, she wrote on Instagram, “baby #2 in the midst of all of this we're counting our blessings and couldn't be more grateful! 👶🏽.”
