Kevin Hart’s marriage just fell on hard times.
The actor appears to admit to cheating on his pregnant wife in an Instagram post Saturday night, explaining that someone had targeted him for “financial gain” because of his mistakes.
“I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes,” Hart said.
TMZ reports the “Get Hard” actor was caught in an extortion attempt for a “sexually suggestive” video with another woman, who was not immediately identified.
The 38-year-old comic confessed to a “bad error of judgement” in the Instagram video and apologized to his wife, Eniko Parrish, and his two children from a previous marriage.
“It’s a s—-y moment where you know you’re wrong. There’s no excuses for your behavior,” Hart said.
Hart indirectly denied accusations that he cheated on Parrish in July, a month shy of his first wedding anniversary to Parrish. He was pictured in a vehicle with a mystery woman.
“#LiveLoveLaught… SMDH (Shaking My Damn Head),” Hart wrote on Instagram, appearing to reference reports of the alleged affair.
Hart’s wife is about 31 weeks pregnant, according to Instagram posts brimming with photos of her progress.
On Wednesday, Parrish shared a loving snap of hubby Hart nuzzling against her pregnant belly.
Hart, a Philly native, already has two children with ex-wife Torrei Hart.
TMZ reports that a woman has been demanding an unspecified amount after filming a “sexually suggestive” video with Hart, noting that the actor is not visible in the footage and it’s not a sex tape. The hush money would then halt the video’s release.
The footage appears to show Hart acting intimately with another woman at a club before cutting to a bedroom, according to TMZ, citing sources who have seen the footage. A man who may be Hart can be seen in a clip from the bedroom. The sound of a creaking bed frame and slapping can be heard.
Hart’s reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment but told the celebrity news site that law enforcement is involved with the failed extortion attempt.
Hart, whose net worth boasts an estimated $ 120 million after roles in “The Secret Life of Pets” and “Ride Along 2.” He slated to appear the “Jumanji” remake as a zoologist and weapons specialist.
