If you’re like me, you were a little confused when you saw photos of comedic Kevin Hart and his girlfriend Eniko, celebrating their anniversary at some tropical island. What’s the big deal? Well, the two posted a photo saying their were celebrating their FOUR year relationship, which we found sorta kinda odd since he and his ex-wife, Torrei, had divorced only two years ago. But according to the ‘Let Me Explain’ comic, what most don’t know is that he had a lengthy divorce from his ex. In a recent interview with Madame Noire, he commented about some of the backlash that he’s received from women:
Black women assume they know your life, that’s the funniest thing about black women. Here’s where people mess up. They mess up caring about what people think. At the end of the day, your life is your life. You could be walking and fall in the grass and people would say he fell ‘cuz he was on that stuff. He was on them drugs. People make opinions. If you choose to feed into those opinions, your life will be miserable. “I got into an argument the other day — and it doesn’t matter your race, whether its black or white but it was a black girl — and the girl was like ‘you’re a piece of s**t. It’s funny you just got divorced and you’ve been with this girl for four years.’ My divorce took me two-and-a-half years! I’ve been separated for damn near six-and-a-half years! But everybody assumes they know. These things, you laugh at. It’s people’s opinions. You just take ‘em and laugh and say ‘oh, you know, you’re right, you know. You’re me.’
Speaking of their divorce, Kevin’s ex has been quite transparent about how both of them have moved in, successfully, co-parenting after their divorce. In a recent interview with us, she explained:
Even going through the divorce, it got a little bitter but we still remained friendly. We would go through patches. Let a court date come up and that’s when it would get intense. I even tried to attack his attorney in court. She was good I was like, ‘Damn, she got to go down.’ I was trying to take her out. She was lying but she was good. And the funny thing is she is now my attorney…..We’re good friends. We had our ups and downs during the divorce. Right now we’re good at good parenting, were excellent actually at co-parenting, because he is working a lot, and when I work he comes and gets the kids and we just try to make it work. I wouldn’t want my kids to ever see us not getting along, or feel like ‘Okay, my parents can’t work it out.’ I feel like as long as you put the kids first, then you can do it and it does take time.
