Kevin Hart made a public apology to his wife and kids for being involved in a sexually suggestive video that he was being extorted over. Sources tell TMZ that the footage of Hart cheating is not a sex tape, but rather a sexually suggestive video that could be a prelude to sex. On Saturday, the comedian and actor profusely apologized to his wife Eniko Parrish, who is currently pregnant with their child. In the Instagram video, Hart said he recently made some mistakes that he deeply regrets.
“I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back. And because of that I should make smart decisions. And recently, I didn’t. You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form. And I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.
And I just, you know, it’s a shitty moment. It’s a shitty moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior. At the end of the day man, I just simply have got to do better. But I’m also not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes and in this particular situation that was what was attempted. I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes.”
Sources tell TMZ a woman has allegedly demanded money from Kevin after being filmed together and engaged in “sexually suggestive” behavior and if payment was not made they would release the damning video. Apparently, at the moment when the two people in the video are having the most fun, the person said to be Hart cannot be seen.
Sources who have seen the video tell TMZ there are several clips. The first appears to show a woman and Kevin in a club getting cozy. The tape then cuts to a bed, where you don’t see the people in the bed … but hear creaking and what could be people having sex. You never see Kevin in the 2nd clip. The 3rd clip shows 2 people milling around a room, one of them looks vaguely like Kevin.
“Someone tried to set Kevin up in a failed extortion attempt,” Hart’s rep said in a statement. “As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation.”
