Kevin Hart is officially a movie star. Universal’s Ride Along dominated the Martin Luther King Day weekend, wracking up a superb $41.2 million over its Fri-Sun frame and is projected to earn around $47.8 million over the holiday. The debut is the largest in Martin Luther King Day weekend history, ahead of the $40m/$46m four-day debut of Cloverfield in 2008 as well as the biggest Fri-Sun opening in January history. After successful stand-up comedy theatrical releases and supporting roles in hits like Think Like A Man, Kevin Hart’s moment has arrived.
With his growing success, a lot of eyes have now turned to his girlfriend of almost 5 years, Eniko Parrish. A lot of the attention has to do with the fact that he has been divorced for about 4 years; so, you do the math.
Further compounding the issue are the differences in appearance between his ex-wife and Miss Parrish, who just also happens to be Jamaican. We all know the world has a hard time grasping the fact that Jamaica’s motto of “Out Of Many One People” is quite literal and not a p.r. stunt.
Because of her looks, there are people who allege that she is a typical gold digger, Jamaican con artist, etc. etc. But, Kevin happy, and rate her 100%, so obviously the person to whom whatever she is matters most is happy. Another example of “everything weh gwaan a farrin, yardie get the blame”; or the definition of “when gyal good, dem great?”
