Kevin Hart Reveals How He 'Messed Up' His First Marriage

The comedian owned his mistakes.

Published October 12, 2016

Kevin Hart recently made headlines for his massive wedding with his current wife, Eniko Parrish, but though he is in a happy new relationship, he says he learned a lot from his first.

In an interview with Chelsea Handler, he admitted to messing up his marriage with his first wife, Torrei Hart, because he was just too young.

"I was young on my first marriage, Chelsea," he said, via Us Magazine. "I'm not ashamed to say it, guys. I got married at the age of 22. I was still all over the place. I didn't really understand the definition of marriage. I wasn't ready for it, so I take responsibility. I can say I messed my first marriage up. I'm man enough to say that."

Of course, the comedian added his signature humor in there, saying, "At the same time, that was when I was in the prime of my sexy, so don't blame me. That's when I was figuring it out."

Despite their past struggles, he and Torrei are now on good terms, especially now.

"I will say that me and my ex-wife, regardless of the problems we went through, are in an amazing place now where we're friends, we're great parents, we're co-parents," he said.
