After previously claiming he was being extorted, Kevin Hart has admitted he cheated on his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, earlier this year.
“That’s Kevin Hart in his dumbest moment. That’s not the finest hour of my life. With that being said, you make your bed, you lay in it,” he said on New York’s Power 105.1 morning show “The Breakfast Club.”
The “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” star said that the incident happened when he went to Las Vegas on a whim. “I’m guilty, regardless of how it happened and what was involved and sh– 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.”
It was “a reality check and a gut-punch from God,” he said.
In September, Hart apologized to his wife and kids in an Instagram video, saying he made “a bad error in judgment” that put himself “in an environment where only bad things can happen, and they did.” He went on to say that he wasn’t going to allow someone to make a “financial gain off of my mistakes.”
Montia Sabbag, the woman at the center Kevin Hart’s extortion scandal, denied claims that she recorded herself and Hart together. She hired attorney Lisa Bloom “to protect my rights.”
“I’m truly sorry for any involvement that I had in this,” she said in September, after Hart’s Instagram post. “I am not an extortionist.”
