Kevin Hart took to Instagram to preemptively apologize to his wife Eniko before blackmailers could beat him to the punch.
Hart posted an emotional video to Instagram, apologizing to his wife and children, claiming an unidentified person was trying to extort him over a “sexually suggestive” video in which he’s suspected to be caught cheating on his wife.
The unidentified person who possesses this video attempted to extort Hart for “millions” of dollars.
Law enforcement sources tell us … an anonymous person contacted Kevin’s camp and provided the video TMZ described Saturday … showing Kevin and a woman in a sexually provocative situation. The video then cuts to a bedroom where there appears to be sexual activity on a bed, although you don’t see who is in the bed.
We’re told the person demanded a multi-million dollar amount in return for keeping the video private. There were actually several demands, and at one point the amount hit 8 figures.
Our sources say The FBI knows who the woman is who interacted with Kevin, and they either believe she is the one who made the money demand … or someone who got hold of the iPhone that recorded the encounter made the demand. Either way, FBI agents think they know the identity of the culprit.
Eniko, who is currently pregnant with Hart’s child, has yet to address the issue publicly.
