Kevin Hart is trying to get himself out a bad situation.
The funnyman took to Instagram on Saturday today to publicly and profusely apologize to his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish and his kids, Heaven Hart and Hendix Hart from a previous marriage, for some bad behavior on his part and to say that someone was trying to seek “financial gain” as a result of his actions.
“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,” said the actor.
“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 reported that Hart was being extorted by someone who has suggestive video of the comic.

In July, the comedian found himself at the center of what appeared to be a short-lived cheating scandal after photos of him and a mystery woman sitting together in the backseat of a car surfaced online.
Despite the photos surfacing, the possible extramarital affair did not seem to threaten the couple’s exciting time ahead.
At the time, Hart responded to the rumors via Instagram by posting a photo of himself laughing with a border of text that read, “At the end of the day, you just gotta laugh at the BS.” He added in the caption, “#LiveLoveLaugh ….. [Shaking my damn head.]”
Parrish did not comment on the allegations, but did pose for an Instagram selfie shared the same day. The 32-year-old described herself as feeling “GREAT” in the photo that showcased her growing baby bump.
