Kevin Hart promised his fans he will be a ''better man'' on Saturday (23.09.17).

The 'Central Intelligence' star - whose wife Eniko Parish is pregnant - has been targeted in extortion attempt over a sexually-suggestive video and he made reference to the controversy during a stand-up comedy show in Atlanta.

He opened the performance by telling the audience: ''We got a lot of s**t to talk about, people.''

According to TMZ, Kevin then went about his comedy routine and at the end again vowed: ''I'm going to be a better man''.

The 38-year-old star - who also has children Heaven, 12, and Hendrix, nine, with ex-wife Torrei - previously revealed the extortion plot when he sent ''many apologies'' to his wife and children in an emotional Instagram post, in which he discussed his ''mistakes'' and claimed there was someone trying to make ''financial gain'' from his past antics.

He said: ''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 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.

''And I made a bad error in judgement 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 made apologies to, that would be my wife and my kids.

''And I just, you know, it's a s***ty moment. It's a s***ty moment when you know you're wrong and there's no excuses.

''At the end of the day man, 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.''
