Actor responds to claims he deliberately stole Torrei Hart's thunder.
Kevin Hart's happiness doesn't have to come at anybody else's expense, the newly engaged actor claims. After some of his followers accused Hart of deliberately timing his engagement news with the premiere of his ex Torrei Hart's new reality show Atlanta Exes — she accused him of cheating in the first episode — the Real Husbands of Hollywood star had to respond.
"I wish y'all could see my face when I read some of the comments that you guys leave....I just want to take a second to share some COMMONSENSE with you guys!!!" he wrote on Instagram. "August 18th was @neekibaby actual Birthday...it wasn't the day before or the day after. I will say this one more time & never repeat myself again....I wish my X Wife nothing but the best in life...I've moved forward with my life & have been doing so for the last 6 years. The only thing that was on my mind yesterday was making sure my lady had an amazing 30th B Day. I'm happy to say that my now FIANCÉ was blown away by the entire evening. #MissMeWithTheBulls--t #KillNegaitivityWithPositivity"
Hart, who popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Eniko Parrish on Monday, may have also had an awkward run-in with Torrei at popular Atlanta strip club Magic City. TMZ reports that both Kevin and Torrei were celebrating at the club on Monday night (Kevin his engagement and Torrei the premiere of her show) and were seated within sight of each other. Thankfully, everybody remained civilized and, while the exes didn't speak to each other, a good time was had by all.
Sounds like both Harts have a lot to celebrate this week, and despite their back-and-forth in the media, they wish each other well.
