Kevin Hart says he was irresponsible
Kevin Hart admitted that he has been "beyond irresponsible" after getting caught up in a cheating scandal.
The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actor issued a public apology to his then-pregnant wife Eniko and children Heaven, 12, and nine-year-old Hendrix - who he has with ex-wife Torrei - three months ago for some "bad" behaviour. He claimed someone had tried to extort him for financial gains, reportedly over a suggestive video of himself and an unnamed woman, and he has now acknowledged the period when it happened was not his "finest hour".
Asked on Power 105.1 FM's The Breakfast Club about the time he "got caught cheating in Vegas", he said: "It's beyond irresponsible. There's no way around it.
"The best way to do is just address right on. You gotta f....ing just say exactly what it is. That's Kevin Hart in his dumbest moment. That's not the finest hour of my life."
But Kevin insists he had never planned to "f..k up" and the incident was just a one-off.
He continued: "With that being said, you make your bed you lay in it. You can't say what were you thinking because you weren't thinking. You can't say 'Kev, what you thinking when you did it?' That's what a false reality comes in to a f..k-up.
"You don't plan to f..k up. You f..k up, and then you go, 'Oh s..t, I f...ed up' ... I'm gonna go home, I'm gonna address it. I'm gonna make my wife fully aware of what's going on in the situation that I have now put us in. I'm hoping that she has a heart to where she can forgive me and understand that this is not going to be a reoccurring thing and allow me to recover from my f...king massive mistake.
"That's what I'm trying to do, not only as a man, but within teaching a lesson to my son."
But the 38-year-old actor insisted Eniko - who gave birth to their son, Kenzo, last month - isn't a "pushover" for standing by him.
He added: "My wife is not a f...ing rug. Listen, my wife is not a rug. That woman is a woman. She is real. Don't let the smile and the innocent posture you don't see her talk on social media. Nobody sees here really talk. I know that woman. That woman, when she sees red, she sees red."
