Kevin Hart bared it all on how his cheating scandal affected his family with his children to Will Smith on a special Father’s Day episode of Will’s wife Jada Pinkett’s Facebook show, “Red Table Talk.”
When Will asked how he handled the scandal with his children, Kevin said, “I stepped in some s–t, yeah. You’re never prepared for that side of it. Having a little girl in my life, it’s tough. You don’t realize the impact that your mistakes can truly have. When the kids get involved, it’s a different feeling, it’s a different emotion.
“Through my public, uh, debacles … it’s very hard to bother me. But when your child shows disappointment, shows emotion, shows ‘I don’t understand why and you gotta have those conversations, the head drops for the first time.”
Kevin actually stepped out on his wife Eniko Parrish with model Montia Sabbag in Las Vegas sometime in 2017. Their moves were recorded, which was later released in a reported extortion attempt.
Montia later claimed in public that she hadn’t been the one to the tape, calling Kevin just as much a victim as herself. Not too long, she backtracked on that, and sued Kevin for $60 million in September 2019, claiming that Kevin and his friend J.T. Jackson had set her up with a hidden camera … the lawsuit was later trashed.
“Now you realize there’s a different emotional cord that can be pulled on you that nobody else has the privilege of ever touching. My daughter touched on that cord, man. When me and my wife went through what we went through and the whole cheating display, my talk with Heaven, goddamn.
“That was one like no other. Getting my daughter back, getting my daughter to understand that I’m sorry, that I made a mistake, that was real. To understand, I’m still dad,” Kevin Hart explained.
Kevin has four children, two Heaven, 16, and Hendrix, 13, with ex-wife Torrei and the other two, Kenzo, 3, and Kaori, 8 months, with current wife Eniko Parrish.
Jada Pinkett showed up at the end of the show agreeing that the two superstar actors did a wonderful job on the show.
