Now, Kevin Hart has enjoyed a very successful career so far.
But over the past few years he’s been forced into the limelight more than ever.
He has captured the attention of the world.
The comedian got his first big break back in 2001, when he was cast for a role on the TV series Undeclared.
Although it only ran for one series…
It catapulted Harts career as he went onto star in likes such as Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, Soul Plane, In the Mix, and Little Fockers.
Hart, who is originally from Pennsylvania, released his first stand-up album in 2008 before going on to release four more.
His career has been a huge success as more recently we have seen him star in The Secret Life of Pets, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Night School, and Jumanji: The Next Level.
But with all the highs have, of course, have come the lows…
Back in 2019, Hart was involved in a serious car crash.
He was left with a spine broken in 3 places and required recovery at a rehabilitation facility.
Yet despite his horrific injuries, he made a speedy recovery.
Kevin was also embroiled in a cheating scandal.
Though Kevin is married to Eniko Hart and shares 3 children with her, he was accused of cheating and recording a private tape without the consent of the other participant.
He was sued by model, Montia Sabbag, for $60 million.
She claimed that he is behind the recording of a private tape of herself and Hart back in 2017 in Las Vegas, which she was not aware of at the time.
In an interview with DailyMailTV, Montia spoke of how she became involved with the married actor.
After initially not having plans to head to Vegas, she spoke of how she wasn’t aware that Hart would be there as a part of the group.
She claimed that the married man was intimate with her on 3 separate occasions during the trip…
But insisted that she didn’t realize Hart was married.
Kevin has been married to Eniko since August 2016…
She was pregnant with their son, Kenzo, at the time that Kevin was unfaithful with Montia.
The couple are still together though, and seem to have worked through it.
But now, after a few years of turmoil, Hart has some good news.
He has signed a huge deal with Netflix.
And fans are very excited about it…
The actor signed a 4-movie first-look deal…
Which he will both star in and produce through his HartBeat Productions company, Deadline reports.
This is a huge commitment as, the last time Netflix made a deal this big with a comedic actor it was the $150 million, 4-picture extension it signed with Adam Sandler.
Though it won’t be Harts first time working with the company.
He previously released his comedy special, No F***s Given on Netflix.
Which turned out to be their top comedy special of 2020, so really, this offer seems like no surprise.
Hart shared the exciting news over on his Instagram where he wrote, “Excited about this new chapter for myself & my company.”
“I am beyond blessed and thankful for my team at HartBeat Productions….I truly believe in our ability to make global films that will make a lasting impact in cinema history for years to come.”
“We are just getting started people #HartBeatProductions …..It’s all about the “We” not the “Me”.”
