AceShowbiz - Kevin Hart has finally publicly confessed he cheated on his wife Eniko Parrish earlier this year, when Eniko was pregnant with their first child together. The 38-year-old actor/comedian previously claimed he was being extorted, but he has now admitted to cheating on her, calling himself "beyond" irresponsible.
In an appearance on New York's Power 105.1 morning radio show "The Breakfast Club" this week, the "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" actor said, "That's Kevin Hart in his dumbest moment. That's not the finest hour of my life." He continued, "With that being said, you make your bed, you lay in it."
Kevin went on detailing the incident, saying that it happened when he went to Las Vegas on a whim and his family was out of town. "I'm guilty, regardless of how it happened and what was involved and s**t I can't talk about," he said. He added that he hoped his wife "has the heart to where she can forgive me and understand that this is not going to be a recurring thing."
The comedian said that it was "a reality check and a gut-punch from God." He continued, "We talked," adding, "That's when the bond of your union will be question. No one is perfect."
Hours after her husband spilled the tea on his infidelity, Eniko took to her Instagram account to respond to the comments he made. "The naked truth is always better that the best-dressed lie," she wrote as the caption of her post which featured a quote dishing on being freed by the truth.
Back in September, Kevin apologized to Eniko and his kids in an Instagram video after a woman threatened to release sexually suggestive footage of him if he didn't pay her up to $10 million. He said that he made "a bad error in judgment" which put himself "in an environment where only bad things can happen, and they did." The "Ride Along" actor went on to say that he wasn't going to allow someone to make a "financial gain off of my mistakes."
While Kevin and his wife put a united front, Montia Sabbag, the woman who was seen in the sex tape with him, denied claims that she recorded herself and Kevin together. She hired attorney Lisa Bloom "to protect my rights." In a press conference, Montia admitted to having "an intimate relationship" with the actor, but denied allegations that she blackmailed him. "I'm truly sorry for any involvement that I had in this," she said at the time. "I am not an extortionist."
