FBI is ‘investigating multi-million dollar extortion attempt’ on Kevin Hart as he publicly apologizes to his pregnant wife

The FBI is investigating a multi-million dollar extortion attempt on Kevin Hart after he publicly apologized to his pregnant wife and his two children over what he described as a ‘bad error in judgment.’

The 38-year-old posted a video to Instagram on Saturday in which he apologized to wife Eniko Parrish and said he wasn’t perfect and had recently made poor decisions.

He said there was ‘no excuses’ but added that someone was trying to seek financial gain over his mistakes, and he’d rather confess than let that happen.

Law enforcement officials told TMZ that an anonymous person contacted Hart saying they had a video of the comedian and a woman in a sexually provocative situation.

The video also shows two people engaged in sexual activity on a bed but Hart’s face is not visible for the most graphic part of the clip, according to the website.

The FBI reportedly knows the identity of the woman and are looking at whether she made the extortion attempt in return for keeping the video private.

They are also investigating whether someone else gained possession of the iPhone the video was filmed on and then made demands.

The extortion demands reportedly reached eight figures at one point.

In the apologetic video Hart posted to Instagram, he would not shed light on the mistakes he had made recently.

His caption read: ‘Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I’m not perfect and have never claimed to be… I love you all.’
