Comedian Kevin Hart appears to apologize for cheating on his pregnant wife
Kevin Hart, the 38-year-old incredibly successful stand-up comic and film star, has been married to his wife Eniko Parrish for about a year. Rumors of Hart's cheating have dogged the couple for a while now, and until now, Hart has laughed them off. But now, in his wife's pregnancy, it seems he's come forward to admit that he's done something quite wrong.
“I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back. 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 judgement 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, that would be my wife and my kids.
“And I just, you know, it’s a s—-y moment. It’s a s—-y moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior. At the end of the day man, I just simply have 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.”
It sounds like Hart is admitting that he's made mistakes, but that he isn't going to let those mistakes be twisted for the benefit of somebody else. Right now, what matters is his wife and kids, and that's still his main priority. Always has been.
Allegedly, a video exists of Kevin Hart engaging in "sexually suggestive" behavior with a woman who is not his wife, and recently, someone attempted to extort him for the footage. Instead of paying to keep it private, Hart has just come out and given his full honesty on Instagram, which is commendable.
Hart describes himself as a '20 year journey to overnight success'. Now that he's one of the most famous men on Earth, the temptations have been stacking up, and he's not perfect. While cheating is never acceptable, it seems the fame and attention gets to a lot of people. Hart was originally married at the young age of 22, a marriage that, he confesses to Chelsea Handler, was a bit premature.
"I'm not ashamed to say it, guys. I got married at the age of 22. I was still all over the place. I didn't really understand the definition of marriage. I wasn't ready for it, so I take responsibility. I can say I messed my first marriage up. I'm man enough to say that."
We wish all the best for Hart and his family, and hope that the cheating rumors and his subsequent apology won't drive them apart. It's always difficult to deal with cheating, however, and I can't imagine doing it while pregnant. The Hart household will undergo a lot of pain and change, but it's always best to be honest than to lie and hide the truth from your significant other.
