Kevin Hart has apologised following allegations he has cheated on his wife Eniko Hart – and women are furious. The Ride Along actor has been married to Eniko for a year and the couple are expecting their first child together.
TMZ reports that Kevin, 38, confessed publicly after an unidentified woman tried to extort money from him over a sexually suggestive video.
In an emotional Instagram video posted on 17 September, the comedian admits his wrongdoings and states: “I’m not perfect.” Kevin explains: “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…
Watch Kevin Hart’s apology:
“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 apologised to, that would be my wife and my kids.”
Kevin is already a father to daughter Heaven, 12, and son Hendrix, nine, both from his first marriage to Torrei Hart.
In the apology video, the Think Like A Man actor continues: “And I just, you know, it’s a s****y moment. It’s a s****y moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behaviour. 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.”
Kevin received backlash from fans considering he previously said the cheating rumours were false. One critic said: “Someone said hes a real man for admitting to it…….hes only talking cuz hes getting blackmailed…..he loves his money!”
Another added: “Are you kidding me Kevin?? I feel stupid for even rooting for you smh.”
One other weighed in: “Didn’t he just get married? Ragardless not ok. Weak men make weak excuses!!! I loved youuuuu. Whyyy! Ugh I can’t anymore. There’s a difference between mistakes and MISTAKES. Stop letting being human be an excuse for weakness in that way.”
Agreeing, another Instagram follower stated: “Kevin shouldn’t have put hisself in no situation like that .. these women are out to get you .. you… should know to stay away from that.”
Many of Kevin’s other fans offered support to the star, including one who wrote: “Way to man up and own your faults and mistakes. We all sin. Good luck and hope everything works in your favour.”
Another added: “If God can forgive so can we as long as we put our words into action.”
In July, Kevin was accused of cheating on Eniko when he was filmed inside a car with a mystery woman outside a Miami Beach hotel. However, the Central Intelligence star laughed off the claims on social media.
