Kevin Hart laughs off cheating rumors, but this time they’re coming from his ex wife


A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on

Remember when Radar published a faraway video allegedly showing Kevin Hart “cheating” on his pregnant wife? It seemed like none of the outlets reporting that story actually watched the video, which showed him in a car with two people talking, one being an attractive young woman. The most damning part was that it was in the middle of the night, but he was touring so that might be expected. Go here for my coverage of that story, I truly did not see any cheating and think Radar was hyping it for views, which is their business model. (Raises hand.) It was easy to believe though because Hart, who is newly married, had just published a memoir in which he admitted cheating on his ex wife. Hart responded to that controversy by posting a photo of himself laughing and not directly addressing the story. I honestly thought he should have pointed out that there were two people in the car at least and that you can see from the video that nothing happened. It turns out his approach might have been the best strategy.

Well now his ex wife, Torrei Hart, has commented on a post by his new wife, Eniko Parrish, claiming that she’s been with Hart for eight years. (Update: commenters pointed out the timeline.) Torrei and Kevin divorced in 2011 so that would mean that there was overlap between his two relationships. Eniko then responded that Kevin’s marriage was over by then, which is probably what he told her. I can’t get the source material for any of this as it’s deleted from Instagram, but here’s E!’s report on it:

Eniko Parrish and his ex-wife Torrei Hart got into a verbal scuffle online after Parrish wrote on Instagram that she and Hart have been together for eight years. As fans were quick to notice, the star filed for divorce from his first wife six years ago in 2011, alluding to the fact that there may have been overlap between the two relationships and potential cheating.

In since-deleted comments, Parrish reportedly shot back at the claims, saying Torrei spread cheating rumors years ago and that she never “wrecked” any home. In response, Torrei partly quipped, “We have made successful strides to become a loving co parenting family, but you have now left it open for my character to be questioned. You, Kevin, and I know the truth.”

I really like Torrei’s very pointed and clear response. It sounds like she nailed it. Meanwhile Kevin responded just like he did to the Radar video, he never discussed the claims and just talked about an alleged encounter he had with a fan who supposedly confronted him about him about cheating, which he claimed made him laugh. He did this in an Instagram video which he has also since deleted, but here’s E!’s story again:

Hart took to his own Instagram account on Monday with a cryptic response, similar to the reaction he gave last month when he was accused of cheating on his pregnant wife: with a laugh.

“That moment when you meet somebody on the street that knows more about your life than you—huh?!” he said with a confused expression. “I’m at a point where I can’t even be shocked anymore. All I do is laugh, man. I had a person tell me what they felt was factual information about me while they were talking to me.”

Hart pointed out that he’s written a book about his life and included stories about himself in his standup specials. “Still not enough?”

“That’s what I love the most about stand-up comedy—you got that microphone, you got that stage—you take advantage of it,” he concluded. “This next hour will be my best hour yet because moments like this act as nothing but material for your boy.”

[From E! Online]

The only thing that gives this explanation any weight is the fact that he didn’t defend himself with specifics when the Radar video came out, and just laughed that off vaguely then too. He really seemed blameless there, but this must be his go-to response and it’s smart. That way, when he’s confronted with a true accusation he can just laugh about it without going into specifics and it seems just as valid as the last time he did that.

    You know what they say when the mistress becomes the Mrs it leaves a job opening.

    I don’t know if this story is true for them but I’ve seen its a pattern with others.

    I never understand why people who can’t stay faithful continue to get married again and again. But it does make statistical sense: 1 in 7 first marriages last, but 50% overall end in divorce – must be a select few people divorcing again and again.

  2. pwal says:

    Errr… that’s not how it went down. One of Eniko’s ‘fans’ pointed out the overlap and Eniko proceeded to throw Torrei under the bus.

    You made it sound like Torrei was trolling Eniko. Torrei seems well over it. All of this could’ve been avoided if Eniko opted to ignore that ‘fan’s’ question/statement.

    • Enough Already says:

      This. The first wife has always kept it classy. It’s not her fault the genius second wife was on a social media high and forgot basic math.

    • Onemoretime says:

      Yes this! A fan called out the over lap and she threw Torrie under the bus. People were calling Torrie bitter but she was the family care taker, while this clown was trying to make it big. It was her life he used in his stand up, she took care of the kids. Torrie was defending herself because the new missues can’t handle her followers! He himself said he cheated so new wife needs to take a seat!

  3. Div says:

    While people often are separated for a year before divorcing, Kevin freaking admitted to cheating on his past wife. Why on earth would the current wife/ex mistress post about the length of their relationship? Idiot. To be fair, I also find it dumb that the ex-wife is following/getting into IG fights with the former mistress. While I do believe people can change/reform their ways, how you get ‘em is often how you lose ‘em so I wouldn’t be surprised if Kevin cheated again.

    • BJ says:

      His ex wife explained that she spoke up because the current wife basically called her a liar.She said for the sake of her kids who are old enough to read this stuff she wanted to publicly state she was not a liar when it came to Kevin being involved with current wife during their marriage.Dates don’t lie.

    • Enough Already says:

      the first wife has always been quiet about the cheating. The mistress/new wife was humble bragging on social media and forgot to account for the overlap. She outted herself, was called out by followers and doubled down by criticizing the character of the first wife. That is when the first wife defended herself in a very controlled response.

  4. OriginallyBlue says:

    Eniko should have just stayed quiet and not dragged Torrei into it. She posted about being together for 8 years, a fan said it wasn’t a good look because Kevin and Torrei have only been divorced for 6 years. She claimed that Torrei started those rumours because she didn’t want to own up to her own shit and that there were other women before her (as if that makes it better or makes her look less ridiculous). She apparently started posting pictures of him back in ’09, but they didn’t file for divorce until ’10. Torrei handled it very well. She was with Kevin from the beginning, while he was struggling. I don’t see the appeal of him other than the money.

    • rlh says:

      Nailed it.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Well, then she deserved the set down. Eniko doesn’t sound secure but that is her own fault for marrying a man she knows is capable of cheating. Torrei has nothing to do with it.

  5. Iknowwhatboyslike says:

    Eniko’s response to the fan was down right disrespectful to Torrei. She accused Torrei of always “playing the victim” and then mentioned that Kevin cheated with multiple women during he and Torrei’s marriage. Her defense is that she was not THE mistress, but A mistress.

    • Caly says:

      She sounded like a typical reformed side chick, now wife. If she had that energy to type this to a stranger online, I can’t imagine what she tells her friends, even worse his kids.

      I’m glad torrei gathered her.

  6. JA says:

    When the side chick starts to rewrite history into fairytale love. Ha! You got promoted to wife and pretty sure he’s been interviewing for your old position. A tale as old as time….

    • HK9 says:

      Exactly-you gonna rewrite history leave out the numbers because they don’t lie. All she did was tell on herself. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer is she.

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Right. These people forget that pictures and stuff exist. Don’t rewrite history if you can’t count. But she’s “exotic” so it’s ok I guess.

    • Caly says:

      I think she’s this bothered because she’s pregnant, can’t travel everywhere with him like she did for the past few years. She knows what he used to do with her when his wife was home alone with small babies. Last month, he was caught with another woman late at night. She’s insecure, hormonal and most of all SHOOK.

      • vaultdweller101 says:

        I think this is it, exactly.

      • Avery says:

        One thing I know for sure and two things I know for certain. That Eniko will know intimately and without a shadow of a doubt how Torrei felt. Eniko may have forgotten about Karma but Karma ain’t forgot about her. The tables will turn and she will be served a dish best served cold. It is not a matter of if…but when.

        I don’t like Kevin at all. If he believes that Eniko would have been with him in a row house in west philly with nothing…i got a bridge to sell him.

      • HK9 says:

        @ Avery-slow clap.

  7. yyu says:

    Fame and money… will even make a guy who look like this sexually attractive to women.

    Jesus, if a guy who looks like some ‘kevin hart’ can comfortably find the opportunity and nerve to cheat on his wife, then what most people say is true: MONEY makes the world turn.

    • Maple Girl says:

      I mean, he seems to be an cheating mess, but he is a good lookin guy.

      • yyu says:

        No, he is really not. That is what you call the halo effect.

      • Bridget says:

        He’s short, but he’s attractive otherwise. Maybe don’t tell people that they’re mistaken in finding someone attractive.

      • detritus says:

        I think he’s cute, and he’s funny, and dude’s ripped now. Objectively he’s nothing to kick out of bed for cracker crumbs.

      • Mo says:

        Yeah, he has a handsome face and fit bod, just short. I am sure he is hotter that whoever you are banging @yyu.

  8. ElleBee says:

    It’s obvious at this point that something in this milk isn’t clean. If the Harts were happy in their new marriage they wouldn’t have time to constantly respond to fans and throw Torrei (who was minding her own business) under the bus. Happy people don’t concern themselves with outsider opinions.

    The cracks are beginning to show.

  9. M. says:

    I remember when my mom and step dad celebrated their anniversary a few years back…together for fifteen years. I did the math, and it meant they were together for two years while my parents were still married, living together and sleeping in the same bed. It’s a pretty upsetting thing to learn.

  10. Jamie says:

    The last comedy special he did, he spend most of it talking about how he cheated on his wife and how crazy she was when she suspected he was cheating. I have never watched another Kevin hart material again.

    I cannot support a man who used his own star power to complain about his wife being crazy because she suspected he was cheating while he was actually cheating!
    He even said during the special that he did not regret cheating and that he believes he is happier than her. He also described how he tried to get his friend to cover for him when terrie caught him in a lie and his friend didn’t want to help him cover his cheating.

    • ElleBee says:

      He’s always used his ex-wife as material for his shows. I find it disrespectful. Eniko seems to lack personality so for sure his shows will lack in the future but it’s what he deserves

    • Sayrah says:

      What?! How disrespectful is that? Asshat

    • guesting says:

      @Jamie, so basically he gaslit her and used it as material for his show? Emotionally abusive waste of humor. :(

  11. CharlieBouquet says:

    I think he is very handsome but this is not cool. And yeah a married former side chick preggy with her yummy man doing shows on the road? She probably lies awake at night.

  12. Squiggisbig says:

    Eniko is not the brightest. And of course Kevin laughs cheating on E off, when this doesn’t work (b/c the problem is him) that’s more gossip for another tell all.
