Things just took a serious turn. Actor Kevin Hart has a reputation for being a cheater, but now his actions are coming with a hefty price tag. The Think Like a Man star recently took to Instagram to confess to cheating on his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish and revealed that the mystery woman tried to extort him for money before sharing a sexually explicit video of Kevin that was allegedly filmed last month.
“I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back,” the 38-year-old said in his Instagram video. “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 judgment 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, being my wife and my kids."
“And I just, you know, it’s a sh-tty moment. It’s a sh-tty moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior,” he continued. “At the end of the day man, I just simply 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.”
While fans might be surprised by Kevin's actions, his ex-wife Torrei Hart is not. Torrei, who shares daughter Heaven, 12, and son Hendrix, 9, with Kevin, slammed the comedian for being a serial cheater following his apology video. She also revealed that his relationship with current wife Eniko, who is expecting a baby boy later this year, most likely began before they were divorced. "I can't say yes, I can't say no. All I can say is if it happened to me, it could happen to anyone," she told Inside Edition.
In response to critics who believe she shouldn't have gotten in the middle of her ex-husband's scandal, she defended herself on social media. "I have every right to speak my peace, If I want to do an interview and promote my (haircare) brand, I have every right to do that," she wrote. "I was done dirty and treated like trash but still always kept it classy."
The video in question is allegedly four minutes and 47 seconds long, and seems "highly produced." It cuts to footage of two people who appear to be having sex on a bed, and then a naked man who looks like Kevin walks into the room.
The mistress and possible extortionist, Montia Sabbag, is reportedly a traveling stripper. According to TMZ, the 27-year-old asked Kevin for hundreds of thousands of dollars after the unknown extortionist tried to sell the video to at least one media outlet for $15 million. She denies shooting the incriminating video.
