There is no beef between comedians Katt Williams and Kevin Hart; at least, according to the latter's ex-wife, Torrei Hart.

Williams, set to tour with Torrei, stirred up controversy after leveling some allegations against Kevin and other comedians on his visit to the "Club Shay Shay" podcast that has since gone viral.

Torrei Hart Believes Katt Williams And Kevin Hart Will Work Together

Hart's ex-wife set the record straight on the situation between Williams and Kevin as she exited the Hollywood Improv on Tuesday evening.

Torrei confirmed that Kevin is on board with her going on the 3-night tour with Williams and does not see any conspiracy behind it as she and Williams have maintained their friendship for almost 20 years.

While Torrei and Kevin have been divorced for about 13 years, his ex-partner shared that they are still very good friends and might even do a tour together if Kevin is down to do most of the work.

Kevin even showed his support for Torrei and Williams, stating that he loves everyone and wants every comedian to succeed especially their planned tour.

The speculation of tension between the three was not fabricated, as Williams had earlier described Kevin as an "industry plant" on Shannon Sharpe's podcast, among other harsh insults.

The reality star fired back at Williams and told him to get the hate off his chest last Friday as he revealed some juicy facts about Wiliams during the New York Knicks against the 76ers.

The "Ride Along" star was a guest on "NBA Unplugged" on Friday night as the New York Giants battled the Philadelphia superstars.

"Another fun fact about the New York Knicks, I don't know if you guys know this, but Katt Williams bought the Knicks. And it's rumored that he took the Knicks back and returned them with a receipt," said Kevin as the game went on.

Dailymail noted that Kevin stated Williams was the first person ever to pull the move and the purchase only lasted for 15 days before he returned them. The timing of Williams's comments seemed suspicious as some sources have described it as a publicity stunt for the upcoming tour.

Ice Cube Cleared His Name Following Katt Williams's Mention.

Kevin was not the only one hit by Williams's wrath. Fellow actor Ice Cube also came under attack as Williams revealed he refused to shoot a rape scene in the movie "Friday After Next."

"The problem with Friday After Next is we're trying to make a classic comedy, and this comedy involves a rape, and rape is never funny, no matter who it happens to or what the circumstances are." stated the comedian.

The Blast reported that Williams claimed that he risked his budding movie career back then to avoid shooting the scene for the hit 2002 comedy flick which was also his movie debut.

Williams played the role of Money Mike in the movie, which was the third part of the "Friday" franchise, alongside Cube's Craig Jones and Chris Tucker's Smokey as they all tried to pay their debts to a drug dealer. Williams continued that he managed to convince the producers that the movie be perfectly fine without the rape scene. 

Nevertheless, Cube refuted the controversial claim in an almost 10-minute video where he emphatically stated that he would never include rape in his movies nor use sexual abuse as a joke.

"I would never shoot a rape scene in a movie, especially Friday, where you actually see this happening on camera. That ain't my style," said Cube, who added that he did not enjoy shooting sexual assault scenes.

The 54-year-old however confirmed that Williams's character script was indeed adjusted, but only because the movie producers allowed actors to put a spin on their performance, adding:

"Once we get what we want with the script, we let the comedians ad-lib, riff, you know, play with the words, and do their thing. We give them two, three takes where they can go off and do what they feel,"

He continued that if a rape scene were needed to make the movie better, it would have been included regardless of the actor's opinion.
