Comedian Kevin Hart’s career is currently on fire as he is still enjoying the success of his latest movie “Ride Along.” However, with success always comes criticism and the fixation on one’s personal life when you’re a celebrity.
Kevin is learning this faster than others considering his failed marriage to Torrei Hart ended as a result of his cheating and many seem to think he may have cheated on his ex-wife with his current girlfriend Eniko Parrish.
The comedian covers the February 2014 issue of Upscale Magazine and he discussed the accusations. He also clapped black at the black women he claims have been calling his girlfriend “exotic looking.”
“I read so much stuff that Black women say, especially about my relationship. ‘Oh, he left his Black wife to go be with some exotic chick.’ First of all, my girl is Black. She’s Jamaican. But they say it as if they know what me and my ex-wife’s problems were. When we first got together, our relationship was amazing. We got married young and our s*** got rocky. In my divorce, I stood up and said to my ex-wife, ‘Hey, I messed up. This had nothing to do with you. I didn’t understand what marriage was. I cheated. I was wrong. We couldn’t fix it, it got worse. I stepped away because I didn’t want it to get any worse. You’re the mother of my kids, I don’t want to hate you. And the only way that’s gonna happen, is if I’m the bigger man and I leave.’ I think that was a very mature thing to do.”
This isn’t the first time Kevin has had some words for black women, but what do you think about Kevin’s comments?
