Comedian and actor Kevin Hart posted a video to Instagram over the weekend claiming that he’s being extorted by someone trying gain financially from a secretly-recorded video they have of Hart being intimate with model and actor Monita Sabbag at a club and later in a bedroom, according to People magazine.
“I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in a bad environment,” Hart said on Instagram, and apologized to his family, including his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish.
On Wednesday, Sabbag spoke out with her lawyer Lisa Bloom to confirm she is the woman in the video, but she is not the person doing the extorting. “I’m not an extortionist,” Sabbag said at the news conference.
“I had nothing to do with these recordings.” “We invite Mr. Hart to join us in bringing the perpetrator to justice,” said Bloom, who also said she and her client are not suing Hart or asking for “a cent.” “To the criminal who did this, I say you belong in prison and we are going to find you.”
Since Hart’s apology on Instagram, he and Parrish were spotted out together Tuesday. Parrish is pregnant with a boy. Hart has two other children with first wife Torrei Hart, who has accused the comedian of cheating on her with Parrish while they were still married.
