Kevin Hart is facing his share of scandal right now. His 8-year marriage to Torrei Hart ended because of, according to Torrei, “lies and infidelity.” The two divorced in 2011 but Hart’s currently pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, claims the couple have been together for 8 years; there’s no math error there if you refer back to what Torrei said.
Parrish, pregnant with what will be Hart’s third child, is likely the person, or one of the persons, Hart referenced in his stand-up special “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain” where he said” Yes, people, I cheated. Am I ashamed of it? No, no I’m not. Do I wish I could take it back? No, no I don’t.”
Now the unashamed infidel is reportedly being extorted by a woman who has threatened nonconsensually release a video that reportedly shows Hart with a sex worker (stripper) Montia Sabbag and which is described as “sexually suggestive.” This woman is reportedly asking Hart for $10 million to stop her from releasing the alleged video.
“On Sunday, the unidentified woman said she wanted to ‘expose’ the star as a cheating liar. Sabbag denies having anything to do with the video.”
Hart took to Instagram to address the situation: “I made a bad error in judgment…Sending so many apologies to my wife and kids,” he wrote. “I gotta do better and I will. I’m not perfect and I never claimed to be…I love you all.”
As this article was being edited, the video in question was released. According to TMZ, “Kevin Hart partied with a woman…for an entire weekend last month.” The woman is reportedly a “traveling stripper” named Montia Sabbag. She met Hart in Vegas in August and can reportedly be seen in an almost 5 minute video, though it is not clear if Hart is the person in bed with her. He is seen, however, in photos with her at the beginning of the video and could be the person at the end of the video getting dressed with Sabbag, though it is not clear.
This was reportedly the first and last time the pair met. Law enforcement is investigating the video and Sabbag, though she still denies having released the video herself. TMZ reported that “there were other people present during the weekend and investigators are tracking them all down, with the intent of serving search warrants as quickly as possible. The brass ring for law enforcement is [also] decoding the encrypted emails the extortionist sent to Kevin’s people and figuring out the sender’s identity.”
Sabbag got herself a lawyer quite quickly once Hart’s legal team had contacted her. “Her lawyer said she would sit for a lie detector test if Kevin paid her $420,000.”
Reportedly, prior to asking a ransom of Hart for the video, the unidentified extortionist may have asked a media outlet for $15 million for the video first. The video is described as “highly produced.”
Hart has had two meetings with investigators and is aggressively trying to find whoever has been extorting him and whoever was behind making and releasing this video.
