Kevin Hart has sent "many apologies" to his wife and children after he was allegedly targeted in an extortion attempt over a sexually suggestive video.

The Central Intelligence star - who has Heaven, 12 years old, and Hendrix, nine, with ex-wife Torrei and is expecting a baby with spouse Eniko Parrish - posted an emotional video on Saturday. He discussed his "mistakes" and claimed there was someone trying to make "financial gain" from his past antics.

He said in the Instagram post: "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 apologised to, that would be my wife and my kids.

 

NO EXCUSES

 

"And I just, you know, it's a s***ty moment. It's a s***ty moment when you know you're wrong and there's no excuses for your wrong behaviour," Hart said.

"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."

The 38-year-old actor vowed to "do better" for the sake of his family.

He captioned the post: "Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be ... I love you all."

According to TMZ, a woman demanded money from the actor to stop her from releasing a video featuring "sexually suggestive" conduct, though it is not a sex tape.
