Five Outrageous Facts about American Comedian Kevin Hart

Funnyman Kevin Hart is one of the busiest and most dedicated comedians and entertainers of his generation. Born with the gift of the gab and the ability to flip controversies on their head, Hart has amassed a $200 million fortune and has over fifty acting and producing credits to his name.

Recently coming off the self-produced feature film Fatherhood, Hart is currently wrapping up production on the Netflix limited series True Story and filming a new Netflix film, Me Time, with none other than Mark Wahlberg. He’s also set to team up with director F. Gary Gray on the heist drama Lift in 2022.

More Kevin Hart on our screens means more Kevin Hart promotional whirlwinds. As one of the most outspoken celebs around, Hart’s antics are never far from the headlines.

However, even the most diehard Kevin Hart fan may not know every single one of the following outrageous facts about the star comedian.

1. Kevin Hart Was Gifted a Llama in 2021

Hart’s bromance with Jumanji co-star Dwayne Johnson is the stuff of wholesome legend, and the diminutive actor also has a budding bromance with Mark Wahlberg blossoming away in the background. Neither of these relationships, however, have reached the heights that Hart’s prank-war with Nick Cannon has in 2021.

Back in July, Cannon sent the birthday boy a rather warm and furry gift in the form of a real-life llama.

The escapades didn’t stop there, however. After Hart returned the favor by publishing Cannon’s direct number in a series of advertisements across LA, New York and Atlanta, Cannon took things a step further by wrapping Hart’s private jet with a blown-up image of his face.

2. Kevin Hart’s Insect Phobia

Sure, there are some members of the insect kingdom that would give even the most stoic among us the creeps, but surely not butterflies and grasshoppers? Well, if you happen to be Kevin Hart there’s no distinction between a pretty little butterfly and a house centipede.

Hart legitimately suffers from entomophobia, which is an extreme fear of insects – particularly of the flying variety.

3. Kevin Hart Didn’t Follow Career Advice

…and his career’s all the better for it.

Early on in his career, Hart performed for a manager and talent booker Lucian Hold – the man who famously ‘discovered’ Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Jerry Seinfeld. Believing that he was “killing it” during the audition, Hart had high hopes Hold would sign him on the spot. Hold had a different idea, though.

After his set, Hart was taken backstage by Hold where he was asked if he had another occupation. When Hart replied he didn’t, he was told in no uncertain terms to “think about doing something else” because a career in comedy wasn’t for him.

4. The Future of Poker

Hart’s passion for poker is well known; he’s been playing the game since 2010 to varying degrees of success. A few years ago, however, he declared himself the savior of poker by making it “fun.”

In addition to competing in the 2017 PokerStars Championship at the prestigious Monte Carlo Casino, the outspoken actor famously announced he had “bullied” himself into working with the global gaming brand and intended to become the new face of poker “because I love the game…and it’s missing me.”

It’s a tactic that worked, as Hart went on to engage in a whole host of promotional activities with the brand that year, even going head-to-head with Usain Bolt in a series of hilarious poker-themed challenge videos.  

5. Kevin Hart Was NBA Campmates with Kobe Bryant

Standing at just 5 feet 4 inches in height, Hart doesn’t exactly scream star hooper.

Nevertheless, Hart has had a lifelong passion for basketball and dreamt of one day becoming an NBA player. As a teen, he even ended up attending the same basketball training camp as Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

Hart may not have followed the same path as the uber-talented Bryant, but he never gave up on his dreams and did, technically, go on to play for the NBA. For a number of years, Hart was a key player in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, where he played so well he took home the MVP award four years in a row.

Zoe LaVerne Gets Pregnancy Test To See If She’s Pregnant Again

Zoe LaVerne is an American TikTok influencer, YouTuber, internet personality, and singer. LaVerne gave birth to her first daughter in 2020 with her husband, Dawson Day.

It seems like LaVerne wants to get pregnant again. She took to social media to show off her pregnancy test and her desire to have a second kid. 

Is Zoe LaVerne pregnant again?

On January 25, 2023, LaVerne took to Snapchat to reveal that she might be pregnant again. She said that she had had some pregnancy symptoms lately.

As a result, she believed that there were chances that she had conceived her second baby. So, she said that she might do a pregnancy test to confirm her speculation.

She confessed she was low-key scared to do the test. But a few moments later, she took the test and uploaded a story on Snapchat saying, “my heart is racing I’m nervous lol.”

A few moments later, she posted another story to reveal that she was not pregnant. The pregnancy test showed only one line — indicating that she was not pregnant with a second kid.

LaVerne was disappointed with the result, and it seems she really wants to get pregnant again. She wrote, “i’m sad but it’s ok!! when it’s my time, it’ll be my time.”

Looking at her message, the TikToker might try to get pregnant again in the near future. Fans were unhappy with her stories since many complained that she was trying to pull a “Cody Orlove.”

Orlove was LaVerne’s former boyfriend, and the break up between the two was bad. After the split, they moved on and stayed in a relationship with other people.

Recently, Orlove took to Snapchat to upload a story of her girlfriend showing off a pregnancy test. This led many to believe that Orlove was going to be a father soon.

However, he later clarified that the test said: “not pregnant.” He noted how he got congratulatory messages from fans and followers, but the symptoms were just a “jump scare.”

Many accused him of click-baiting his fans and followers. Now, they are accusing LaVerne of the same.

Is Zoe LaVerne a bad mother?

Since LaVerne expressed her desire to give birth to a second baby, many have noted that she should not be doing so. They have complained about her being a bad mother to her first child, Emersyn. 

When she gave birth to Emersyn, the TikToker had an emergency C-section since her baby was premature, and she claimed that she almost died. Following the birth, Emersyn had to stay at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for quite some time.

For LaVerne, this meant that her income from socials was put to hold. As a result, she did not have a steady flow of income to take care of her baby.

So, she opted for the easiest mechanism to make fast money —  OnlyFans. She offered her fans and followers exclusive photos of her daughter for $15.

LaVerne told Insider selling the pictures “was a way to make money to pay for her extended stay in the hospital and spend more time and focus on her.”

However, this did not sit well with LaVerne’s fans and followers. They complained that she was a bad mother for selling the pictures of her baby.

Moreover, they pointed out that there were different types of people on the internet, and Emersyn’s pictures may be misused. Taking this as an example, many have asked LaVerne not to get pregnant again and have a second baby.

Rachael Lange Issues An Apology For Deleted Tweets Using N Word

Since January 20, 2023, Rachael Lange has been facing a massive backlash.

This happened as soon as she was seen holding hands with Dylan O’Brien. People thought she was his girlfriend, so they started researching her.

Soon, they were mortified to find out that Lange was a racist who did not hesitate to use the n word. Moreover, she admitted to being a pedophile, claiming to like “small black children.”

To make matters worse, she had now-deleted tweets about her hating Taylor Swift. O’Brien and Swift are very close, and to see O’Brien’s alleged girlfriend slut-shaming Swift was horrifying to a lot of people. 

Needless to say, Lange was called out for her actions. The model deleted tweets and blocked several users as well following the backlash.

Regardless, the damage had been done, and people demanded an apology from her. The Elite Model Management NYC  model private her Twitter and, possibly, hoped that the controversy would die down.

But since it did not, Lange took to Twitter to apologize for her actions.

Rachael Lange’s apology

On January 23, 2022, Lange apologized for her actions via a post on Twitter, claiming she was “mortified and ashamed” of her old posts.

She “wholeheartedly” apologized for the now-deleted tweets. She claimed that she was disgusted by her behavior and the way she spoke.

“I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for past tweets of mine. I am mortified and ashamed that they exist; and am truly disgusted that I ever spoke that way,” she wrote.

She admitted that she heard the people’s concerns and issued an apology for the pain she had caused. “All I can say is that I hear you all and am sorry for the pain I’ve caused and contributed to,” she wrote. 

She took responsibility and accountability for her actions and claimed that she was ignorant at the time. She promised that she was not the same anymore.

“I want to make it abundantly clear that I take full responsibility,” she explained. “I was extremely ignorant and while I do not remotely resonate with the things I once said, there is zero justification for my ever having said them.”

At last, she sincerely apologized for hurting people with her words. “I understand the significance that my words have and am deeply sorry for the hurt I have caused,” she concluded.

Reaction to Rachael Lange’s apology 

Even though Lange apologized, people were not happy with it. Many complained that her apology was insincere and that she simply did it to save her face.

Moreover, people noted that after the racist tweets and her using the n-word surfaced, Lange’s first reaction was to delete the tweets. Not only that, but she also blocked the people who called her out.

The netizens pointed out that this was Lange’s mechanism to hide her dirty past. They questioned the model and why was her first approach to delete the tweets and not issue an apology sincerely. 

After apologizing, Lange has not responded to anything on any platform.
