Kevin Hart, American stand-up comedian and actor, faces a $60 million lawsuit after Montia Sabbag, model and actress, accused him of negligence and invasion of privacy stemming from a 2017 incident.
The lawsuit comes a few days after Hart was discharged from the hospital, following a horrible car crash.
According to Sabbag, the movie producer secretly recorded their intimate encounter in 2017 at Las Vega hotel.
Sabbag said her encounter with Hart was all planned by him and Jonathan Jackson, his friend, who was arrested for extortion, according to TMZ reports.
She said the actor’s motive at that time was motivated by publicity, especially with an upcoming comedy tour and that was why he and his friend allegedly hid the camera.
In September 2017, footage was being shopped around of Hart allegedly engaging in sexual intercourse with Sabagg in a Las Vegas hotel room.
The comedian’s friend was later arrested for allegedly trying to sell the footage and Hart claimed he was the victim of “extortion”.
Jackson, who denied ever extorting the comedian, was later charged with two count charge of extortion relating to alleged efforts to get money out of Hart to keep the tape under wraps.
However, TMZ claimed to have recently obtained court documents filed on behalf of Sabagg, accusing Hart of his involvement in the act.
The suit claimed Hart allowed Jackson into the Cosmopolitan Hotel suite so he could set up hidden video recording devices to capture the liaison.
On September 1, Hart was involved in a ghastly car accident and had undergone surgery after Jared Black, his friend, lost control of his vehicle and plunged all down a gully in collision with a wooden wall.
Last week, he was said to be in “intense pain” after undergoing back surgery to fix three fractures to his spine sustained in the car crash.
