Late last week, some financial information was leaked about Kevin Hart and ex-wife, Torrei Hart, divorce settlement. The former Mrs. Hart would like to clear up a few rumors.
It was initially reported Torrei would only walk away with $175,000, an escalade and a few personal jewelry form Kevin Hart’s $9 million fortune. However, in an exclusive interview with TheYBF.com, Torrei says there was no pre-nup and that she merely wanted to end the divorce proceedings and move on with her life.
Torrei on the Marriage & Legal Woes:
“There was no pre-nuptial agreement. Kevin and I have known each other ever since we were very young, and we genuinely loved each other. I knew Kevin when we both had very little. We built our love, our marriage, our family, and the Hart Empire from scratch together.”
On attacking Attorney Debra Opri:
“Many news outlets have chosen to spin Kevin and I’s divorce proceedings in many ways. The truth of the matter is, yes I did attack Debra Opri and I am unapologetic for my actions. No one wants to be painted falsely in a negative light. With the immense amount of legal and emotional pressure that I was under, I think almost anyone can understand. A majority of the court’s final decision came from me simply being tired of going to court and fighting battles over money and material things. I’m a hardworking black woman; I know how to hold my own. In the end, the legal drama and the money drama were not worth it. Ironically, Debra Opri, is my attorney now, and we are close acquaintances.”
On Kevin Hart: Kevin is a great father to both of our beautiful children.
“Like all marriages, we’ve been through a lot together. At the end of the day, Kevin knows the truth. He knows that I was the strong woman by his side every step of the way. I am nowhere near perfect, and I can admit that I have flaws, but he knows what I’ve had to endure over the last several years. Although things have been up and down, Kevin and I are actually really good friends. I recently had a yacht birthday party, and Kevin paid for everything. We have children together, and our goal is to make sure that we provide a nurturing environment for them at all costs.
On Future Plans:
“I am, and always have been in full work mode. I recently Executive Produced and acted a short film titled “Victim of Circumstance,” which is being submitted to several film festivals. I also create sketch comedy on my YouTube channel “PrettyFunnyFish” with my partner Simone Shepherd. Moreover, I plan on going full speed ahead into comedic, as well as, dramatic acting. I am no stranger to entertainment, and I know what it takes to be successful in this industry. I am currently in talks with a few networks and have some really big things coming down the pipeline that I am not at liberty to disclose as of yet…but The YBF will be the first to know as soon as I have the green light from my team to speak on it!”
Torrei also revealed, via a rep, she isn’t focusing on the cheating Kevin did during their marriage, because she’s moving forward with the career she says he didn’t allow her to have:
“I could go into detail about extra-marital affairs, and other problems that many American couples have, but I won’t. Some who’ve walked in these shoes would boast, ‘I’ve lived the Diary of a Mad Black Woman… almost scene by scene,’ but I won’t.”
She seems mature. Glad they were able to put their differences aside for the sake of their children.
