For the first time ever, Kevin Hart’s wife Eniko Parrish is breaking her silence about his cheating scandal in the new Netflix docuseries, “Kevin Hart: Don’t F**k This Up.”
The six-part docu-series aired Dec. 27 and fans were quick to take to social media to talk about Hart’s infamous 2017 cheating scandal. Hart cheated on his then very pregnant wife during a trip to Las Vegas. Video footage of the cheating surfaced and Hart took to his Instagram account to apologize for the incident publicly.
In the docuseries, Parrish opened up about how she found out about the cheating.
“How I found out was a DM. I don’t know who it was, sent me an edited video of Kevin and another woman. I was pregnant at the time. I was about 7-8 months pregnant, I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately I just lost it. I called him crying, I’m like, pissed. Right then and there I kept saying, ‘How the fuck did you let that happen?’”
“You publicly humiliated me. Your whole, everything’s on Instagram, everything’s on social media. It was an ongoing fight all the time,” she recalled, through tears. “Every single day. I kept questioning him, like, ‘If this is what you’re gonna do, I don’t want to be a part of that.’”
As for why Parrish chose to stay with Hart after the cheating, she said that she wanted to save her family.
“I kept worrying about the baby, I have to maintain a level head, I think that’s the only thing that really got me through,” she explained. “I wasn’t ready at the time to just give up on my family. I wanted Kenzo to be able to know his dad and grow up, so it was a lot. It was a lot for me, but we’ve been through it, we’ve gone through it, we passed it and he’s a better man now because of it.”
”I’m happy that it kind of happened,” she continued, still visibly emotional. “I get sensitive every time I talk about it. Sorry.” Parrish says she believes in second chances, but added, “three strikes, you’re out. As long as he behaves, we’re good.”
Fans on Twitter were highly disappointed with how Hart talked about the cheating incident on the show. One fan tweeted, “The part of Kevin Hart’s documentary where he talks about cheating on his wife is so hard to watch and cringe. “My crew wasn’t there to protect me” lmao sir you did not need grown men to tell you not to cheat on your pregnant wife.”

Other fans talked about how Parrish was the alleged mistress when Hart was married to his ex-wife, Torrei Hart. One fan tweeted, “Just watched a video of Kevin Hart’s wife crying, about how she found out about his cheating. BUT this is the chic he was cheating with when he was still married to his first wife. She thought he would change. A rat is a rat! Talk about karma!”
