It sounds like a plot to movie, but it’s turning out to be Kevin Hart‘s real life…
The Central Intelligence star is trying to get himself out of a bad situation that he got himself involved in—and so he’s coming clean. The funnyman took to Instagram on Saturday to publicly and profusely apologize to his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish and kids Heaven Hart and Hendix Hart, his children from a previous marriage, for some “bad” behavior on his part and to say that someone was trying to extort him for “financial gains” as a result of his actions.
In the video he posted wide, the actor began, “I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back and I should make smart decisions and recently I didn’t.”
“I made a bad error in judgement and put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did,” he confessed. “And doing that I know that I am going to hurt the people closest to, whom I have talked to—my wife and my kids.”
At the end of the video, which is vague about details of the situation, the actor, who has been married to Parrish since 2016, said, “At the end of the day, I just have to do better.”
The Ride Along star also said, “But I am not going to allow a person to make financial gains over my mistakes.”
Along with the very honest video, Hart wrote, “Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I’m not perfect and have never claimed to be …I love you all.”
TMZ reports that Hart was allegedly being extorted by someone who has a suggestive video of the comic and a woman, and that a person was demanding payment from Hart to not release the tapes.
It is also being reported that the the extortion attempt failed (hence the video) and that the authorities are now involved.
