Kevin Hart has publicly apologized to his wife and kids after being extorted with a sexually suggestive video. 

TMZ has further details. 

Sources tell TMZ a woman has allegedly demanded money from Kevin after shooting a video with him in which Kevin and the woman are engaged in "sexually suggestive" conduct.  

There are several clips. The first appears to show a woman and Kevin in a club getting cozy. The tape then cuts to a bed, where you don't see the people in the bed ... but hear creaking and what could be people having sex. 

You never see Kevin in the 2nd clip. The 3rd clip shows 2 people milling around a room, one of them looks vaguely like Kevin.  

The stand-up comedy superstar addressed the situation with a heartfelt message to his wife, kids, and fans posted to Instagram. 

“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," he says. "Recently, I didn’t. You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form."

Rather than deny the allegations, Hart owns up to whatever mistakes he's made in the video.

"I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids."

"It’s a shitty moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior. At the end of the day, I just simply have got to do better. But I’m also not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes and in this particular situation that was what was attempted. I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes.”

The clip has been watched well over 2 million times in less than 24 hours. 

Admitted bad behavior aside, Hart gets props for tackling the controversy head on.
