Kevin Hart’s daughter Heaven (r) gave him a ‘tough’ time when he cheated (Picture: FilmMagic)Kevin Hart has revealed his cheating scandal impacted his relationship with his daughter Heaven, who initially struggled to get over the ordeal.
The Fatherhood actor previously admitted to cheating on his wife Eniko Parrish while she was pregnant with their son Kenzo in 2017.
Their marriage naturally went through a rough patch but withstood the infidelity, with the couple going on to welcome their daughter, Kaori, last year.
However, Kevin’s eldest daughter Heaven – from his previous marriage to Torrei Hart – found it difficult to forgive her father at first.
Speaking to Will Smith in a special Father’s Day edition of Red Table Talk, Kevin explained: ‘It’s very hard to bother me, but when your child shows disappointment, shows emotion, shows “I don’t understand why”, and you’ve gotta have those conversations, well, now the head drops for the first time.’
The 41-year-old continued: ‘And now you’ve realised that there’s a different emotional chord that can be pulled on you that nobody else has the privilege of ever touching.
‘And my daughter touched on that chord, man, you know, when me and my wife went through what we went through, and the whole cheating display, I talked with Heaven. Goddamn.

Getting my daughter back. Getting my daughter to understand that I was sorry, that I made a mistake. … That was real.’
Kevin’s infidelity came a year after he married Eniko, his second wife. The Laugh At My Pain comic previously explained that Eniko decided to stay with him primarily because they had a family to raise.

He publicly admitted to the cheating after an alleged extortion attempt over footage of him with the woman.
He’s currently starring in Netflix movie Fatherhood, about a father who brings up his baby girl as a single dad after the unexpected death of his wife who died a day after their daughter’s birth.
