Eniko Parrish has opened up about how she discovered husband Kevin Hart was cheating.

The 35-year-old was tearful as she spoke about the Hollywood actor sleeping with other women in his new Netflix documentary series, ‘Kevin Hart: Don't F*** This Up.’

She also revealed the toll allegations he was a victim of extortion had on them in 2017.

Jonathan Todd Jackson was arrested and charged with extortion at the time but he always denied it, pleaded not guilty and the charge was eventually dropped.

The extortion allegation was abandoned In September 2019, and earlier this month further charges of attempted concealing, selling stolen property and unauthorised use of personal identifying information were also dropped.

Jackson is still facing an additional count of identity theft in the case

Speaking about how it all came to light, Eniko said in episode three of the series: "How I found out was a DM. I don’t know who it was.

"They sent me an edited video of Kevin and, you know, another woman.”

Parrish continued: “I was pregnant at that time, I was about seven or eight months pregnant. I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately I just lost it.

"I called him, I’m crying, I’m like p*****. Right then and there, I kept saying, ‘How the f*** 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. 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.'"

Eniko went on to explain: “I’m happy that it kind of happened. I get sensitive every time I talk about it.

“He’s f***** up, this was a bad one, this was major. Nine years and I think looking forward, it’ll be better.”

Hart spoke about the difficult period in his life, saying it was the "toughest thing" when he "was just telling my wife.”

He continued: “That conversation, there is no easy way to have that conversation.

“The worst part was just knowing how you made somebody feel. There’s a major effect it could have on the people that you are closest to, who you love the most.

"When I got to see that first-hand with Eniko when I got to see the effect my reckless behaviour had … It was crushing, that tore me up. That really tore me up.”

He continued: “That’s probably the lowest moment of my life because I know what I was responsible for.

"When it happened it came at such a f***** up time. We were in the middle of the tour… and home wasn’t home.

"Home was cold. In that moment, you gotta have something to lean on, something to help you stand up straight.”

Eniko said that she only stayed in the relationship with Hart as she "kept worrying about” their then-unborn son, Kenzo.

She continued: "I have to maintain a level head, I think that’s the only thing that really got me through.

“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.”

Wiping away her tears, Eniko added: “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 believe in second chances. I’m all about forgiveness, and you only get two times. Three strikes you’re out, you’re out of here.

“So, as long as he behaves, we’re good.”

Hart revealed the scandal in an Instagram post in October 2017, where he told his followers about the alleged extortion attempt.

This included a "sexually provocative" video of him with another woman.

In Hart's apology to his then eight months pregnant wife, he said that the tapes were being used to allegedly extort money from him.
