Seeing as how Kevin Hart is in super deep doo-doo amid a cheating scandal of his own making, it’s not surprising to learn that his first wife and mother of his two children, is putting her two cents in the mix.
Torrei Hart spoke with Inside Edition” about how her ex’s “lies and infidelity” ended their marriage.
“When I met him, he was selling sneakers. He started to get fame and I’m kind of feeling a little left behind. We grew apart,” Torrei, 39, recalled of her split from Kevin, 38, during an interview with Inside Edition that aired on today (09-18-17).
It’s been well documented by the funnyman/actor himself. He has publicly admitted to being unfaithful to Torrei, who was his college sweetheart.
“Yes, people, I cheated. Am I ashamed of it? No, no I’m not,” he said in his 2013 stand-up comedy special, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain. “Do I wish I could take it back? No, no I don’t.”
Now we know the agony and grief that Torrei felt because the jokes were made at her expense.
“I have an ex-husband who has repeatedly used me in his stand-up routines. For years, I had to endure that,” she told Inside Edition.
Since their 2011 divorce, Torrei has tried to maintain an amicable relationship with Kevin for the sake of their children, Heaven, 12, and Hendrix, 9. (He and current wife Eniko Parrish are expecting his third child, a baby boy, later this year.)
Things got a little sticky and complicated last year when Parrish, 33, shared an Instagram photo from her and the Ride Along actor’s wedding with the caption, “8 years together. 1 year married. Forever to go!”
Oops! Needless to say, Fans did some math and quickly pointed out that Kevin and Torrei divorced six years ago, prompting her to speculate whether his relationship with Parrish began before their split.
“I can’t say yes, I can’t say no. All I can say is if it happened to me, it could happen to anyone,” Torrei told Inside Edition.
As we’ve reported, an alleged extortionist claims to have a video of the star cheating on his pregnant wife during a party-filled trip to Las Vegas in August. The extortionist is demanding millions of dollars in exchange for not releasing the “sexually provocative” video, according to TMZ. Now the FBI is reportedly investigating the case.
The comedian asked Parrish and his children for forgiveness in an Instagram video posted on Saturday, September 16.
“I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did,” he told his 54.6 million followers. “And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.”
