Exclusive: Torrei Hart Spills The Tea on Divorcing Kevin Hart



If you think Torrei Hart is sitting at home crying over her ex-husband Kevin Hart now that he has a new boo and his career has blown up, you can think again.

HipHollywood caught up with the mother of Hart’s two children at the premiere of R&B Divas: L.A. where she gave us the low down on her relationship now with Kevin after their very public and somewhat messy divorce.

“We’re still good friends,” said Hart. [The media] has definitely tried to spin it.”

“Don’t get me wrong there was tension,” explained Torrei of she and Hart’s divorce proceedings. “But we were never enemies … we were never at that level, ever”

But, Torrei did admit that she almost “put them paws on,”  Kevins attorney, who now ironically is her attorney.

“Shout out to Debra [Opry] she was a great attorney”, said Torrei. “I did have a moment when I wanted to attack her in the courtroom, and that’s when I just kinda said ‘you know what, I’m losing my character, I’m losing myself’ … let’s just end this right here.”

And, if you’ve seen Hart’s latest stand up film, Let Me Explain, then you know a good chunk is centered around his relationship and divorce from Torrei. But, the stand-up comedian said she thought the film was hilarious, and even explained why she once jumped out the back of Kevin’s truck. Check it out!


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
