Kevin Hart opened up about how his philandering ways affected his relationship with his children telling Will that his 16 year old daughter was tough on him after infidelity.
In the Red Table talk with Will Smith, for a special Father’s Day installment Kevin Hart told that
“I stepped in some s–t, yeah,” Hart, 41, said when Smith, 52, asked how he addressed that scandal with his children.
“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,” Hart continued. “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.”
“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 [daughter] Heaven, goddamn,” Hart continued. “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.”
Hart has four children: Heaven, 16, and Hendrix, 13, with ex-wife Torrei and Kenzo, 3, and Kaori, 8 months, with wife Eniko Parrish.
