Kevin Hart has shocked everyone and not just his heavily pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish. The actor/ comedian is deep into a cheating scandal that he initially tried to deny. But with irrefutable evidence, in the form of multiple video and audio recordings, he is now trying to hid his head into sand.
TMZ that initially broke the story says that not just it has videos of the scenes, but that it has been able to find the identity of the woman with whom Kevin Hart reportedly spent several days, trying to get the most ‘out of each other’.
The woman in the video has been identified as 27-year-old Montia Sabbag, who also spells her name Montiah Sabagg.
The photos taken from the video show Kevin Hart in compromising condition with a woman who is said to be ‘travelling stripper’ Montia Sabbag. Reports suggest that the tape in question is at the centre of an FBI extortion probe.
A TMZ report while talking about the story says, “The first frames of the 4 minute and 47 second video are a pic of Kevin and Montia. You can’t see who’s on the bed during the most explicit portion of the tape, but after the bed scene 2 people who look like Kevin and Montia are walking around in various stages of undress…We’re told Kevin had never met her before and has not had any encounters with her since…As we reported, she denies she had anything to do with shooting the video, but authorities are not so sure. We’re told 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”.
38-year old Hart started his career by winning several amateur comedy competitions at clubs throughout New England, culminating in his first real break in 2001 when he was cast by Judd Apatow for a recurring role on the TV series Undeclared. Hart’s comedic reputation continued to grow with the release of his first stand-up album I’m a Grown Little Man (2008), and performances in the films Think Like a Man (2012), Grudge Match (2013), Ride Along (2014) and its sequel Ride Along 2 (2016), About Last Night (2014), Get Hard (2015), Central Intelligence (2015), and The Secret Life of Pets (2016). In 2015, Time Magazine named Hart one of the 100 most influential people in the world on the annual Time 100 list.
While the woman accepts that she is in the video with Hart, she claims that she is not the extortionist. Hart’s rep released the following statement about the extortion case: “Someone tried to set Kevin up in a failed extortion attempt. As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation”.
In a video released to the media, Hart apologized for his behavior. “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. You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form…I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.”
