Kevin Hart Being Sued For $60 Million By Woman In Sex Video Who Claims He Was In On The Recording
Now, as if there wasn’t already enough for him to be concerned about, the woman who appeared in a sex video with Hart in 2017, Montia Sabbag, is suing him for $60 million.
Back in September of 2017, Hart issued a public apology to his wife Eniko, who was pregnant at the time, for a sexually suggestive video that he claimed he was being used by Montia Sabbag to extort him.
Sabbag’s lawyer Lisa Bloom, strongly disputed the extortion claim at the time, saying, “Montia is the victim of multiple felonies under state and federal laws.”
Sabbag also refuted Hart’s claim and also reports that she is a stripper, telling the media, “I’m not an extortionist. I’m not a stripper. I’m a recording artist and an actress and I have not broken any laws. I had nothing to do with these recordings.”
Now, exactly one year later to the day of Hart’s public apology, TMZ reports that Sabbag is suing Hart for $60 million over what she feels was his part in the recording.
Montia Sabbag claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, her 2017 encounter with Hart in a Vegas hotel room was all planned by Hart and JT Jackson — his friend who later was arrested for extortion. She says Hart was motivated by publicity … the need to get more — especially with an upcoming comedy tour — and that’s why he and JT allegedly hid the camera.
The suit claims Hart allowed Jackson into the Cosmopolitan Hotel suite so he could set up hidden video recording devices to capture the liaison. Jackson was later charged with 2 counts of extortion relating to alleged efforts to get money out of Hart to keep the tape under wraps.
Yikes. None of that is good.
