‘I Was Hurt And Upset That He Moved On So Fast:’ Torrei Hart Speaks On Failed Marriage To Kevin Hart
I have a confession. Deep down inside, I really want Kevin Hart and his ex-wife Torrei to get back together. My Olivia Pope gut instincts tell me that they still love each other and have a real shot at making things right. Of course, I don’t know Kevin or Torrei personally and my imaginary instincts don’t matter much in the fate of their relationship, but the love appears to still be there. During a recent interview with our sister site, Mommy Noire, Torrei opened up about the heartbreaking divorce and confessed that she was really hurt by how quickly Kevin moved on. Check out a bit of what she had to say below.
On being in love with Kevin:
“The funny thing is – Kevin was not even my type. I loved him for him. He brightened me up. We were inseparable. I watched him go from making $5 an hour in a shoe shop to becoming a millionaire. I was there when Kevin performed for the first time. We always got together.”
On being hurt by Kevin’s new relationship:
“I was hurt and upset that he moved on so fast. He flaunted it in my face. I did not want to move-on. So during the pain, I sought God and my community. I was a prayer warrior.”
On if she’d consider reconciling with Kevin:
“Never say never. I know it would not work right now.”
On if she’d trade places with Kevin’s new girlfriend:
“No. I like the fact that I work for everything that I have.”
On feeling trapped in their relationship:
“I felt trapped. He was traveling the world, and I was home with the children. I knew how talented I was.”
On her children being hurt by the divorce:
“The separation hurt my daughter. My son was too young to really know what was going on. When my daughter would go to her father’s house, she would sleep with a picture of me and Kevin. They knew I was sad. They would say – ‘mommy we’ll make it okay.’”
Ugh.. am I the only sucker for love secretly wishing that these two work out their differences and get back together?
