Torrei Hart says she means "no shade" to Kevin Hart by embarking on a comedy tour with Katt Williams. Kevin and Williams have been feuding since the latter's viral appearance on Shannon Sharpe's Club Shay Shay podcast. She discussed the beef and her upcoming tour during a chat with TMZ published on Wednesday.

"Why wouldn't he? I mean, I'm funny as f*ck," she joked when asked why Katt chose her. "That's my boy. We've known each other for years and it's only right. I've opened up for Katt before. He's given me plenty of opportunities. We've shot a movie together. We're just close. We're so close Katt has watched my dog before, like we're friends. We've known each other for 20 years. This isn't something that just happened." As for Williams' feud with Kevin, she added: "I have no shade at all to Kevin. Even the stuff that's going on between him and Katt, that's not my beef. That is not my beef. I have beef with no one."

The drama began when Williams accused Kevin of being an industry plant while speaking with Sharpe. “In 15 years in Hollywood, no one in Hollywood has a memory of going to a sold-out Kevin Hart show, there being a line for him, ever getting a standing ovation at any comedy club,” Williams said. Later in the interview, he added: “For a five-year period, every single movie that Kevin Hart did was a movie that had been on my desk that all I had said was just, ‘Can we take some of this Stepin Fetchit sh*t out and then I can do it." Kevin eventually responded on Twitter, writing: “Gotta get that anger up outcha champ….It’s honestly sad."
