“He has recovered like a mo-fo,” Lilly, 43, told Access. “I walked in his house and got chicken skin, ’cause I was like, ‘Why are you mobile? Why are you mobile? What’s happening?’ I expected to sit at his bedside and hold his hand while he moaned and groaned in pain and wasn’t able to move.”

“He was wheeling himself around, laughing with his friends,” she added at the time. “It’s a miracle, a straight-up miracle.”
