LOS ANGELES: Actor-comedian Kevin Hart has issued a public apology to his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish and children after admitting to getting involved with a woman that led to an attempted blackmail.

According to TMZ, a woman has allegedly demanded money from the comedian over a video in which the two are engaged in "sexually suggestive" conduct.

Without directly addressing the alleged footage, he said he had put himself in an "environment where only bad things can happen - and they did", reports mirror.co.uk.

Appearing on the verge of tears, he shared: "I am at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back and because of that I should make smart decisions and recently I didn't.

"I'm not perfect and I'm not going to sit here and say that I am or claim to be in any way, shape or form and I made a bad error in judgement and put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did."

He said he had apologized to Parrish and his two children who he has with his first wife Torrei Hart and admitted there's no excuse for his behaviour.

Kevin continued: "During that I know I'm going to hurt the people closest to me who I have talked to and apologized to - being my wife and my kids.

"It's a s****y moment when you know you're wrong and there's no excuses for your wrong behaviour. At the end of the day, man, I've simply got to do better."

The comedian, who wed Parrish last year, revealed that someone was attempting to make a financial gain from his "mistakes", reports mirror.co.uk.

"But I'm also not going to allow a person to have a financial gain off my mistakes in this particular situation that's what was attempted and I said I would rather 'fess up to my mistakes," he added.

He wrote alongside the video: "Sending so many apologies to my wife and kids. I got to do better and I will. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be... I love you all."

A representative for the actor told TMZ: "Someone tried to set Kevin up in a failed extortion attempt. As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation."
