‘We Don’t Have To Be Friends:’ Torrei Hart On Her Relationship With Kevin’s New Girlfriend

July 19, 2013  |  

A couple of months ago Kevin Hart’s ex-wife, Torrei Hart, opened up about her feelings about their divorce and his new relationship. When she was asked whether or not she’d ever want to switch places with his current girlfriend, Torrei replied:

“No. I like the fact that I work for everything that I have.”

Some sensed a bit of subtle shade in her comment, which led to questions about Torrei’s feelings towards her ex-husband’s new lady and whether or not there was any low-key beef brewing between the two. During a recent interview with the Jasmine Brand, Torrei cleared up the rumors, expressing that although they aren’t friends, they’re not enemies either. She also briefly discussed the divorce and what she thought of Kev’s latest theater release, Let Me Explain.

On her relationship with Kevin’s new girlfriend:

“You know, we’re not enemies, but we’re not friends. We’re cordial when we see one another. In my opinion it’s all about respect. Respect me, and I’ll respect you. We don’t have to be friends. We’ll never be friends. But if you respect me, I’ll respect you. I think, you know, mutual respect.”

On what she thought of ‘Let Me Explain:’

“I thought it was funny. I thought it was good. I thought he talked about me a lot. So, overall it was a very, very, very good movie.”

On the divorce:

“I told him if divorce is something that he really wants, because I’m not going to sit around and wait for you to sell your oats, and think that you can run around town and then come back to me. I’m not that type of woman either. So I said ‘If you really want a divorce, I think you should file the divorce. File the papers.’ And he did that about a year and a half later, he finally filed the papers. And I guess I kind of pushed him to file the papers, because it’s either you’re going to file, or you’re gonna you know, come back home. But I’m not going to just sit around and wait for you to do everything that you want to do because you’re famous now and then think it’s okay. Maybe it would’ve been different had we not been in the spotlight, but you know when the spotlight is on you, you just can’t display certain types of behavior.”
