Tragic Details About Kevin Hart

  • Published on Apr 17, 2019
  • Kevin Hart is one of the most successful stand-up comedians of all time, and you'll rarely catch him without an infectious grin on his face. But his childhood was no laughing matter, and behind the scenes, his life has been shrouded in tragedy. This is his tragic real-life story.
    Hart tailored his award-winning formula for stand-up by focusing on topics that centered around his dysfunctional upbringing, in particular, his experience growing up with his father, Henry, who was so heavily addicted to drugs that Hart claims, quote, "nothing else mattered to him." Since Henry spent most of his son's formative years in and out of jail, Hart was raised by a single mom.
    In his book, I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons, Hart recalled how his dad allegedly broke into his mom's house to steal money. Another incident involved Henry robbing Hart's brother's barbershop and crashing his car.
    After a long and tumultuous struggle, Hart and his brother got their father into rehab. Henry eventually met a woman who helped him stay clean. Hart told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that is relationship with his father is "amazing now."
    After dropping out of college and working as a shoe salesman, Hart decided to hit up the local comedy clubs to perfect his stand-up routine. Variety revealed that his mother agreed to pay his rent for one year while he tried to get noticed.
    "'Kevin' she said, 'I'm not a dream killer.' Her exact words, 'I'm not a dream killer. You're telling me this is what you want to do, I'm gonna let you do it.' She said, 'You've got a year."
    Sadly, his mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2007, just as he snagged a role in the rom-com Fool's Gold. She made the tough decision to keep her diagnosis a secret from him, worried that if he knew the truth, it would derail his career. It wasn't until a few weeks before she passed that Hart found out how ill she really was.
    While cleaning out her home following her death, Hart stumbled upon a box filled with printouts of his interviews and videos of his recorded television and movie appearances. He told Variety,
    "Anything I'd ever done, she had it. She never missed anything."

    Huge respect for Kevin Hart for not licking the boots of Hollywood over the Oscars. So proud of him for taking the first step towards damming the ridiculous flood of BS over decades old whatever. Free speech means free speech for everyone. Hopefully others will follow in his footsteps. It's America, people.

    We don’t care if other people are that aren’t related to us and we must have respect towards everyone and acknowledge their virtues; on the other hand get the fuck out of here with that new era “progressive organic California BS” of I don’t care if my kid is gay.... hell to the No.... give us our rainbow back....

    Kevin Hart is a Baffune Koon , he will do any say anything against another black person, He is a thief he will look in the Satellite Cameras into your home and talk about what his Master told him to Say, He was looking in my home and later that week Kevin Hart repeated my Exact words, verbatim and got lots of laughs and made plenty of Money off me, Kevin Hart is a dirty low down Koon. Kevin is definitely a sell out and I am telling all you people out there watch your television and you will be able to tell when they are watching you through that big brother Camera, yes in your bedroom and in your living room,
