"She is bothered that these stories find their way into the press and that people are asking her about it," the source said. "But she does her best to ignore it all and move forward. She listens to her husband and is not going to get stressed out. She is supporting him and standing by him."

The couple have since been spotted together, enjoying lunch in Los Angeles.

As you've likely heard, Hart took to Instagram on Saturday to publicly apologize to his pregnant wife and his two children, Heaven and Hendrix Hart, after finding out about the alleged extortion regarding an explicit video of the comedian an another woman.

"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," he shared in the video. "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."

Hart continued, "I made a bad error in judgment 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 apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids."

According to TMZ, an anonymous person contacted Hart's team and provided a video of the comedian and another woman involved in a "sexually provocative situation." The person allegedly demanded a multi-million dollar amount in return for keeping the video private.

While TMZ reports that the FBI is on the case and has a suspect, a spokesperson told E! News, "We cannot confirm or deny the existence of an investigation."

Furthermore, the Los Angeles Police Department told us they are unaware of the situation.

Hart's rep released a statement to us, further clarifying the situation: "Someone tried to set Kevin up in a failed extortion attempt. As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation."
