Kevin Hart apologized on Saturday after he was caught on camera cheating on his wife, Eniko Parrish. The comedian alludes to allegedly being extorted, but says in an Instagram video that he’d “rather fess up” than “allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes.” It’s unclear exactly what went down, but Gossip Cop has learned Hart was recently at a party and had some sort of “sexual” encounter with a woman, who wasn’t his wife, and it was videotaped.

Hart has now posted his own video on Instagram , alongside a caption that reads, “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.” In the video, the comedian reiterates some of those points about being sorry and vowing to “do better.”

The one-minute taped apology begins with Hart saying, “I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target of my back, and because of that I should make smart decisions, and recently I didn’t.” “I’m not perfect,” he continues, before noting,”I made a bad error in judgment and put my myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did. He further acknowledges that he has “hurt the people closest to me” and had already apologized to his wife and kids.

“It’s a sh**ty moment where you know you’re wrong, and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior,” adds Hart, who promises to “do better” moving on. He then alludes to the alleged extortion at the end of his apology. “I’m not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes… I’d rather fess up to my mistake,” concludes Hart.

While not getting into what’s been termed to Gossip Cop as a “sexual” encounter, his rep only stated, “Someone tried to set up Kevin in a failed extortion attempt. As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation.” It should be noted that after the comedian was previously photographed with an unidentified woman outside his Miami hotel in July, Hart denied cheating on his wife.
