Michael Blackson and Kevin Hart have been beefing for a minute now but it seems silly for these two comedy heavyweights to going back-and-forth for what seems kind of petty.
Luckily, an end to the hostility may be in sight, but at a price. TMZ recently caught up with Blackson and got to the bottom of it, sort of.
Blackson recently enlisted Torrei Hart, Kevin’s ex-wife for a few dates on an upcoming stand-up comedy tour. At first glance, it seemed like an awkward pairing. Blackson couldn’t disagree more.
"We go way back. When I met Kev back in the mid-90s is when I met Torrei. We're all cool," he said. "Her comedy is getting better.
"She deserves it,” he continued. “She's been working hard for a long time and finally, she's ready to hit the stage."
When asked what he thought Kevin Hart might think of the move, Blackson, in traditional form, let the interviewer know that he cares none.
"Nobody give a damn about no goddamn Kev," he said, then offered a solution to their problems. "I think I should just fight this guy and get it over with."
Subsequently, Blackson admitted that he was "lowkey scared" because "midgets hit hard," a slight at Hart’s height, but conceded that KH "stays in the gym all the time."
Finally, Michael Blackson claimed that it was Torrei that came up with a lot of her ex-husband’s material early on.
"Torrei helped him get where he is," he said. "Torrei helped him write material, everybody helped him write material, everybody but him. And there's a shortage of comedy for females so I think Torrei will definitely be good addition to the rest of them."
Wow. Maybe this isn’t going to end anytime soon. Someone needs to set up a roast while the oven’s still hot, no?
