AceShowbiz - Kevin Hart responds to the allegations that he cheated on his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish. He previously denied the accusations but now he seems to admit to them. He's apologetic in a new Instagram post after a video showed him supposedly flirting with a woman in a car.
The 38-year-old actor/comedian posted a video message with a caption, "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." He added, "I love you all."
"I'm at a place in my life where I feel I have a target on my back and because of that I should make smart decisions, and recently I didn't," he said in his video. "I'm not perfect and I'm not gonna 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 an environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that, I know I'm gonna hurt the people closest to me, who I've talked to and apologized to, being my wife and my kids."
"It's a s**tty moment when you know you're wrong and there's no excuses for your wrong behavior. At the end of the day, I just simply got to do better," he went on and suggested that he was facing blackmail. "But I'm also not gonna allow a person to have financial gain off my mistakes. In this particular situation, that's what was attempted. I said I'd rather fess up to my mistakes."
Kevin Hart married Eniko Parrish in 2016. In May this year, they announced that they're expecting a baby boy. In addition, he shares two children with his first wife Torrei. They split in 2010, and she later claimed that he cheated on her with Eniko.
"I never tried to punch her in the face, even though I've had moments where - trust and believe - I wanted to K.O. her a**," Torrei once said in an interview. "It does hurt that my kids have to be around a woman who broke up a marriage." She added. "I was with [Kevin] when he was selling sneakers for five dollars an hour. I was at every show. I was at his first show where he ever did standup ... I was his muse. I was there from the beginning."
Kevin fired back at his ex in a series of tweets. "It's amazing what people do for attention...all I can do is laugh at a lot of this ridiculousness," he wrote. "Don't believe the hype people. I've been separated & divorced for a long time now people. I've moved on with my life. I guess giving a woman over 20k a month and still being there for her and being an incredible father isn't enough!"
She responded, "Despite what @kevinhart4real has said and the time frames he is trying to establish Eniko Parrish @neekibaby was his mistress and was one of the reasons that broke up my family. I have more proof but Kevin should just be honest for both of our healing."
"I want @kevinhart4real and I to be friends like he portrays we are to the media. @kevinhart4real has gained success by using his family as his number one source of material. From his stand up to his tv shows he's used my personal life as his main story line. So at this place in my career I know he is one of the reason doors are opening up for me. And I am grateful to him for that."
Just recently, Eniko and Torrei butted heads on social media. It started when Eniko shared a picture from her wedding with Kevin Hart and was accused of being the other woman. "Those rumors were spread from her years ago because she wanted to play the victim and not own up to her wrong doings as well. Singled me out as the mistress because we stuck," she responded. "Knowing damn well there was other women during their marriage. But I never wrecked any home. That was never the case and people ran with it. Only WE know how it really went down."
Torrei quickly clapped back, "Here's the thing. I mean, honestly, that's been so long ago. Like, why are we still trippin' on that? I'm happy. I'm out here, a successful businesswoman, launching my brands, doing what I need to do... I wish I had the time that she had to sit around and read comments all day long. I really do, but I don't." But she stood by her statement years ago about Eniko's affair with Kevin Hart, "I mean, numbers don't lie. Dates don't lie."
