LOS ANGELES, CA
A man has been charged in a plot to try to extort money from Kevin Hart. The man threatened to release a video of the Philly-born comedian engaged in sex and sexual acts with Monita Sabbag, the woman who Hart has been accused of cheating on his then pregnant wife with.
TMZ(@tmz) reported that the extortion-artist friend has been identified as 41-year old Jonathan Jackson. He and Hart has allegedly been friends for over 15 years. Jackson is accused of trying to extort an unknown amount of money from Hart in August, before he ultimately settled on going to a few gossip outlets in an attempt to sell the damaging video. Not only were Jackson and Hart friends, the two also appeared in movies together, which was likely of Hart’s doing in getting his friend a role in the 2014 movie “Think Like A Man Too.”
Jackson is currently behind bars on a $100,000 bail. Hopefully he can call his good friend Kevin Hart and ask for help with the bail money……..Oh that’s right! He already burned that bridge! SMH. Hart took to Twitter shortly after news broke about his one-time friend being arrested in the extortion plot against him.
