A 28-year-old model Montia Sabagg, has filed a complaint against the 40-year-old comedian and actor Kevin Hart. She alleged that Hart secretly filmed an intimate moment between them in a hotel room in Las Vegas in 2017 without her consent.
She has asked for a compensation of $60 million (40 million pounds). Montia Sabagg has filed a 38-page lawsuit against the comedian accusing him of "conspiring" to film the intimate footage of the two "without her knowledge". The September 2017 footage showed Hart engaging in a sexual act with the model in a hotel room, in Las Vegas. It was when he was already married to his wife, Eniko Hart.
According to E! News, Jonathan 'JT' Jackson, a friend of the comedian was later arrested for trying to sell the footage to the various websites. Jackson did so because Hart refused to pay him the amount he wanted for the tape.
Jackson pleaded not guilty, the case is still in the court. Hart had back then claimed that he was a victim of "extortion". Sabagg held a press conference alongside her celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to deny the extortion accusations. In her recent complaint, the model mentioned that Hat allowed his friend Jackson to "set up a hidden video recording device' in the hotel room."
The sex tape showed Sabagg naked from waist down, and engaged in a private and consensual sexual act with the comedian. The court papers claimed that the "Jumanji" actor wanted this tape to be a publicity tool for his "Irresponsible" tour.
The reports of this tape emerged two years ago and Hart back then apologised to his wife and kids. "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 said.
Hart said that he wasn't perfect and whatever happened was due to an error he made. He knew that he had hurt his wife and kids the most because they were closest to his heart. The Hollywood comedian recently suffered from a major accident and is recovering.
