Kevin Hart had two children with Torrei Hart: Heaven Lee and Hendrix. The two got engaged in 2000 and married in 2003, but the couple divorced in 2011. He subsequently married Eniko Parrish, with whom he had a son born in 2017.
On 1 September 2019, the actor was involved in a road accident: his car, driven by a friend, crashed into the guard rail of the Mulholland Highway.
Towards the end of 2018, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that it had chosen him to host the Oscar award ceremony on February 24, 2019. The announcement, however, immediately caused many protests on the web, as the actor, between 2009 and 2011, had expressed some positions deemed homophobic on Twitter.
After the protests, Hart published videos in which he apologised, repudiated his previous positions and stated that he had changed. On 7 December 2018, after the increase in controversy, he resigned from hosting.
