In a world of celebrity cheating scandals, it can be hard for someone to get back in the public's good graces; Kevin Hart managed to do this with a dose of honesty and learning from his mistakes.

 

After the allegations surfaced, he originally denied them. Then Hart went on Power 105.1s radio show “The Breakfast Club” and opened up about cheating on his then-pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish.

 

He said, "I'm guilty, regardless of how it happened and what was involved. That's Kevin Hart in his dumbest moment. That's not the finest hour of my life. With that being said, you make your bed; you lay in it."

I'm guilty, regardless of how it happened and what was involved. That's Kevin Hart in his dumbest moment. That's not the finest hour of my life. With that being said, you make your bed, you lay in it.

Admitting that he was guilty is key, there's only so much you can hide as a celebrity since youre seen everywhere and photographed all the time.

 

Hart then issued an apology on Instagram, saying, "I'm 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 didnt. You know, Im not perfect. Im not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form."

 

He continued to show his love for his wife on social media by sharing photos of their family and making an effort to atone for his mistakes. 

The comedian even starred in a music video by J. Cole appropriately titled "Kevin's Heart" that brought up the scandal. The video showed Hart going about his daily errands and facing the public scrutiny of being a man now known as a cheater.

 

Then in a revelation, a man tells him "Look nobody's perfect, and youre only human. Learn from it." As Hart arrives at his perfect home the letters "Choose Wisely" appear above him.

 

In a way this video was kind of like Beyonce's masterpiece "Lemonade." It showed that it's horrible he cheated, but also Hart's only human. The family man made a mistake, but he's learned from it, and he's going to choose wisely.
