It’s been more than a month since a car crash left Kevin Hart severely injured, and now the comedian is finally breaking his silence.

Attorney Andrew Brettler told Entertainment Weekly in a statement that Hart won’t return to work fully until 2020, despite doing a promotional photo shoot for Jumanji: The Next Level  last week.

“While he’s doing a little work here and there for the film, he doesn’t expect to be fully back to work until the new year,” Brettler noted.

Hart is still recovering after a September 1 crash in which the car he was riding in lost control and drove off Mulholland Highway in Malibu Hills, California around 1 a.m. The comedian was in the car with two people, Jared Black and Rebecca Broxterman.

In the statement, Hart addressed the two, saying: “I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery.”

Hart also sustained injuries in the crash and even had to undergo surgery. Although he was discharged after 10 days, according to EW, Hart still requires physical therapy and sits down for most of the day.
