Instead of getting a timeline full of congratulatory messages Tuesday, Kevin Hart’s social media followers were questioning him about the timing of his proposal to girlfriend Eniko Parrish.
The Ride Along comedian popped the question to Eniko on August 18, her 30th birthday and also the premiere date of Kevin’s ex-wife’s new reality show.
Some assumed Kevin was delivering the ultimate “I’m over you” message by declaring his commitment to Eniko while Torrei shed tears over his alleged infidelity on “Atlanta Exes.” However, Kevin said the date of the proposal had nothing to do with Torrei’s reality TV debut.
“I just want to take a second to share some COMMONSENSE with you guys!!!” Kevin wrote. “August 18th was @neekibaby actual Birthday…it wasn’t the day before of the day after…The only thing that was on my mind yesterday was making sure my lady had an amazing 30th B Day.”
Kevin also reiterated that he and Torrei, who has a new man, have a healthy co-parenting relationship.
“I wish my X Wife nothing but the best in life…I’ve moved forward with my life & have been doing so for the last 6 years,” he wrote.
While Torrei’s fans may have been shocked and offended by the timing of Kevin’s proposal, she told VH1.com that she wasn’t caught off guard.
“I wasn’t shocked at all,” said Torrei who did not get a heads up from Kevin. “I wasn’t shocked; I was prepared for this for a very long time.”
Though many interpret Torrei’s comments about the end of her marriage as an indication that she’s still bitter about the split, she said it’s more about how Kevin went about things all those years ago.
“When he first moved on, it was during the marriage. It’s about how things were done. That was the problem. There should be more respect [for] your children’s mother. He could have waited before my kids were all around her that fast,” she said. “It is and will always be about respect and how he did things, but I don’t want to beat a dead horse.”
