Kevin Hart posts a lot of messages on social media, but late Saturday, he posted a very personal one to his loved ones.
Comedian Hart, who has starred in Central Intelligence, Get Hard and Ride Along, issued an apology to his wife and kids for an error in judgment that he says someone is using for financial gain.
“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,” he says. “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, that would be my wife and my kids.”
Hart and wife Eniko Parrish have been married a year and are expecting a child. He has two older children with ex-wife Torrei Hart: daughter Heaven, 12, and son Hendrix, 9.
In the caption text that accompanied his post, he wrote, “I gotta do better and I will. …I love you all.”
Hart was candid, using profanity to characterize his situation: “It’s a (profanity) moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior.” He concluded his message by taking a stand against the individual who has been trying to take advantage of the situation: “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.”
Hart has been in the headlines recently as being among the first celebrities to call for support for the victims struggling after Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area in late August. In early June, he released a memoir, I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons, written with journalist/author Neil Strauss.
