Kevin Hart Reacts To Ex-Wife Torrei Hart's Tour Announcement With Katt Williams

Despite the timing, the “Night School” actor says he wants “everybody to win.”

During Katt Williams' off-the-cuff interview with Shannon Sharpe that dropped last week, he said he and Kevin Hart hadn't been in the same building in over 25 years. Well, that's sorta about to change by way of another Hart. Still, Kevin is taking the high road.

In what appears to be an ironic twist of fate, Kevin's ex-wife Torrei Hart broke the news on Tuesday (Dec. 9) via Instagram that she would be joining the "Friday After Next" star on tour.

"Come see me live with my good friend @kattwilliams on the Dark Matters tour,” she captioned her post on the app. 

The post accompanied a photo of her and Williams and a snippet from his sit-down with Sharpe. "I only put on comedians that are funnier than me," Williams said in part during the clip.

But there’s no bad blood from Hart about this new comedy duo. When asked about Torrei joining Williams, he told TMZ, “My success is my success,” adding, “I want everybody to win, I love everybody.”

“I hope the tour is great.”

The timing of Torrei's announcement comes on the heels of that now infamous "Club Shay Shay" episode in which Williams called out numerous comedians, including her ex-husband Kevin.

“In 15 years in Hollywood, no one in Hollywood has a memory of going to a sold out Kevin Hart show [or] there being a line for him, [or] ever getting a standing ovation at any comedy club. He already had his deals when he got here,” Williams said around the 20-minute mark. “Have we heard of a comedian that came to L.A., and in his first year in L.A., he had his own sitcom on network television and had his own movie called “Soul Plan” that he was leading? No, we've never heard of that before that person, or since that person. What do you think a plant is?”

Later, Williams called Hart a “gatekeeper” who aided in the success of Tiffany Haddish. “Didn’t Kevin open the gate and let Tiffany in? There are 100 gates out here. Everyone I’ve seen got a keeper.”
