It looks like there may be more to the Kevin Hart cheating rumors than we originally thought.
Back in July, Hart laughed off speculation that he'd been filmed cheating on his wife Eniko Parrish. Raising new speculation this week is a video Hart posted on social media over the weekend publicly apologizing for a "bad error in judgment" and implying that someone is trying to use his actions for their own financial gain.
"I'm at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back," Hart said. "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 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 went on to imply that someone was attempting to extort him, saying, "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's vid was murky on the details, but TMZ reports that an anonymous someone is attempting to shake down the actor for millions. Hart's extortionist apparently has already edited a video full of damning footage that includes a suggestive photo of Hart and an anonymous woman, a brief scene of what looks to be two people having sex, and finally, footage of a naked man (who "definitely looks like Hart," TMZ claims) later getting dressed in the same room.
In the video, which TMZ seems to have access to, the extortionist includes audio clips of Hart's previous statements against infidelity (for irony's sake?), and goes on to allege that the comedian's recent charitable actions were merely an attempt to generate positive publicity ahead of the scandal.
"This 'so called' good deed was done to get ahead as he knew this damaging footage was one click away from being exposed as the liar and cheater he is," reads text from the video.
According to TMZ, the FBI is already on the case.
