Kevin Hart is all over the news for admitted cheating, topped off by an extortion scheme by a woman who had videographic evidence of their tryst together. Hart tried to get ahead of the video leaking and avoid paying the money she requested to keep it quiet, by breaking his own news via his Instagram page.
He was only in the video but his actions obviously affected quite a few people. He mentioned his children and his current wife Eniko Parrish, specifically.
While Eniko hasn’t said or posted anything since her husband’s admission, she was seen out yesterday and TMZ and other paparazzi harassed her asking all types of invasive questions.
“Eniko, have you talked to Kevin at all?”
“How you holding up?”
“Have you accepted his apology?”
“Do you know the girl he cheated on your with?”
“Is Kevin still in Atlanta or did he come home?”
Regardless of how you feel about her personally, it’s painful to watch.
While people would have loved to hear what she had to say, there’s another less connected woman who people are
clamoring to speak to as well, Kevin’s ex wife Torrei Hart.
As we’ve written time and time again, Torrei, Kevin’s first wife, was not only subject to his infidelity, she also became the butt of his jokes in several of his comedy routines. Some, in which, Hart said he didn’t regret doing it and wouldn’t take it back.
In the years since Kevin and Eniko have been together publicly, we’ve watched the three struggle to make their blended family work. There was a setback when Eniko posted a picture saying that Torrei played the victim in their marriage and she and Kevin were separated and living apart when they first began dating.
Torrei has commented publicly about Eniko’s allegations on several different occasions. And now, in light of Kevin’s recent relapse, she sat down with “Inside Edition” to talk about the downfall of their marriage, that timeline and possible overlap and the most recent drama.
See what she had to say.
IE: What went wrong in your marriage?
“Lies and infidelity… When I met him he was selling sneakers. He started to get fame and I’m kind of feeling a little left behind. We grew apart.”
The couple who met in college and married in 2003. During the interview, Torrei spoke about Kevin joking about his indiscretions.
“I have an ex husband who has repeatedly used me in his standup routines. For years, I had to endure that.”
She spoke about trying to stay on friendly terms with Kevin and Eniko, until she posted an image on Instagram, speaking about their 8-year-relationship. It caused several eyebrows to raise considering Torrei and Kevin didn’t divorce until six years ago.
IE: Did Eniko start dating Kevin while you guys were married?
“According to her dates, yes.”
In response to an Instagram user, Eniko said that Torrei and Kevin were living in separate homes and that she was never a secret.
“I was like, ‘Whaaat?! Never a secret?’ She said that we were separated and not living together. That’s a lie. We were very much not separated.”
IE: Is he capable of cheating again?
“I don’t know. I can’t say yes. I can’t say no. I can just say is if it happened to me, it can happen to anyone.”

After the interview aired, there were some people who took issue with Torrei using this opportunity to speak again about their failed marriage. She responded to them too. The Jasmine Brand captured the response.
