Actor Kevin Hart is still working on repairing his marriage after his summer sex tape scandal, admitting they have “good days” and “bad days”.
The Ride Along star hit headlines in August (17) after he was caught on camera in a compromising situation with another woman while partying in Las Vegas, with the video footage later becoming part of an attempted extortion plot.
Kevin had to call in authorities to deal with the matter, and he subsequently owned up to his bad behavior and publicly apologized to his then-pregnant wife Eniko and his family. She stood by her husband’s side throughout the drama, and they went on to welcome their first child together, baby boy Kenzo, in late November (17).
Despite playing happy families, Kevin admits the couple is still dealing with the incident, which he insists was “beyond irresponsible”.
Branding the controversy “Kevin Hart’s dumbest moment,” he told New York radio show The Breakfast Club on Thursday (14Dec17) he simply “wasn’t thinking” at the time of the encounter, which he openly admits was “not the finest hour” in his life.
Revealing there are times when Eniko lashes out at the comedian because of his “massive f**king mistake”, he shared, “There’s good days and there’s bad days. Take your humble pie and you f**king eat it (sic)…
“You got to be patient and literally give your woman the time that she needs to recover from that and afterwards, still know that s**t’s gonna come back up. There’s days where we ride in the car and I catch her staring at the side of my face… I just act like I don’t feel it and just keep driving. But I know. The difference is, I love my f**king wife. My wife know my heart (sic). You know who your man is and what I stand for. You know the foundation we’ve built.”
While Kevin is happy to take responsibility for his actions, he does not appreciate critics bringing up longrunning allegations suggesting he cheated on his first wife Torrei, the mother of his daughter Heaven, 12, and son Hendrix, 10, with Eniko.
“I didn’t f**k up my first marriage. Stop it. Stop the talk…,” he pleaded, admitting he’s not happy with his ex for previously appearing to confirm his infidelity by calling Eniko out as a “homewrecker”.
“When people try to run with that, that woman (Eniko) didn’t have nothing to do with my marriage,” said Kevin. “She didn’t have nothing to do with me leaving my wife (sic). Nothing…!”
“This time, granted, I f**ked up,” the actor continued, as he vowed to make it up to Eniko. “But in f**king this up, I’m like, I got to repair this because this is what I want. This is my foundation. This is my wife. This is my kids. I worked for this. Nine plus years into this…! ‘Alright babe, this is bad on all accounts, but I’m going to work to fix it.’ That’s the difference: when you want to work to fix it and you want to fight for what you have.”
