Kevin Hart is making black women climb up off of him and his latest girlfriend, exotic Jamaican-bred beauty, Eniko Parrish.
The white-hot comedian, who has a gang of movies and TV shows and special popping up like dandelions, has tired of women saying that he left black women to be with exotic, light-skinned women. Nothing could be further from the truth, the “Real Men of Hollywood” and Ride Along star says.
First of all, Hart says, his current girlfriend is black and hails from the Caribbean. Secondly, he tried to make it work with his wife and the mother of his kids. But he claims he jumped off the train when he saw his marriage was a train wreck waiting to happen.
In an interview with Upscale magazine, the comedian discusses his tumultuous marriage to ex-wife, Torrei Hart, and also fires shots at hateful black women who he claims berate him of his “exotic looking” girlfriend.
“I read so much stuff that black women say, especially about my relationship. ‘Oh, he left his black wife to go be with some exotic chick.’ First of all, my girl is black, she’s Jamaican. But they say it as if they know what me and my ex-wife’s problems were. When we first got together, our relationship was amazing. We got married young and our s— got rocky. In my divorce, I stood up and said to my ex-wife, ‘Hey, I messed up. This had nothing to do with you. I didn’t understand what marriage was. I cheated. I was wrong. We couldn’t fix it, it got worse. I stepped away because I didn’t want it to get any worse. You’re the mother of my kids, I don’t want to hate you. The only way that’s gonna happen, is if I’m the bigger man and I leave.’ I think that was a very mature thing to do.”
