Kevin Hart has recently been caught out by committing adultery against his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish. Hart narrowly evaded extortion by someone who managed to obtain video evidence of his infidelity at a hotel in Vegas.
Hart Caught Red Handed
Unfortunately for Hart, the phrase, ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ does not apply to him. After this harsh realisation, Hart had to take responsibility for his actions and not only apologised to his wife, but also his fans.
On September the 17th, the comedian and PokerStars ambassador stated in an Instagram post to his followers that read, “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.” Shortly after he made this remorseful statement, his tone quickly changed to one of defensiveness. To which he states that he won’t allow anyone to make a financial gain from his mistakes. He goes on to say that it was attempted in this specific state of affairs.
The video evidence obtained is reportedly not a full-on sex tape. However, the comedian is seen being rather frisky with another woman, which looks to be the runup to a more intimate liaison.
What Went Down
The FBI and Las Vegas law enforcement are reluctant to comment on this alleged extortion. However, a TMZ, a celebrity media outlet did announce that someone anonymously contacted Hart. The anonymous individual blackmailed Hart by demanding that if he does not wish for the video to become public, then he needs to cough up an eight-figure sum of money.
Putting his poker skills to the test, Hart was one step ahead of the blackmailer, to which he announced the misdemeanour publicly before the situation escalated further than it already had.
The Other Woman
Montia Sabbag, the woman who is front and centre of this scandal, denies all claims of her being a ‘travelling stripper’. Instead, she confirms that she is an ‘aspiring actress and model.’ She further rejects any allegations of trying to extort the PokerStars ambassador of his money, stating that she is merely a victim. She went on to say that she believes someone may have gone into the hotel suite and planted cameras.
To ensure that her ‘innocence’ remains intact, Sabbag has in her corner, lawyer Lisa Bloom.
What Now for Hart?
Hart and his wife have decided to continue with their marriage, disloyalty aside. They will continue on as normal with the baby shower scheduled for October 1st in Malibu, which is rumoured to be costing a whopping $117 855 (AUD$148 261.59). In addition, the couple will have a real chimp in a diaper feature at the shower.
