According to multuple reports, Kevin Hart has a long road to full recovery after being involved in a very serious car accident.
While he lies at home and tries to get better, meanwhile, the actor now has something rather important and interesting to read:
A lawsuit for $60 million filed against him by ex-lover Montia Sabbag.
Sabbag, who had previously been identified as Hart's mistress, slept with the comedian in 2017... while Hart was married.
In 2017, the two engaged in consensual sex inside of a Las Vegas hotel room -- and they were caught on tape while doing do.
Hart actually shared a video on Instagram at the time, claiming someone was trying to extort him over the sex tape.
Eventually, Hart’s former friend, Jonathan Todd Jackson, was later arrested and charged with extortion, although he has since denied the allegation.
In new court documents filed this week, however, Sabbag says Hart was aware that Jackson set up this camera and alleges that the actor played a role in the sex tape filming and release.
According to this 38-page complaint, Sabagg accuses Hart, Jackson, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and other related companies of intentional inflection of emotional distress, violations of privacy and negligence.
Hart was already an A-Lister with an enormous fan base and impressive resume at the time of the affair.
However, Sabbag claims the tape was made to help “promote [Hart’s] Irresponsible Tour, which was a record-breaking comedy and to increase his overall pop culture status,” according to the documents.
Sabagg goes on to write that she "had no knowledge that the intimate activity" depicted in the video of her and Hart "was being recorded."
The video, which according to the suit showed Sabagg "naked from the waste down and engaged in private, consensual sexual relations with Hart," was published online in September of 2017.
Hart has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
However, he admitted to the affair and apologized two years ago during a radio interview.
"I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did," Hart explained back then, adding:
"It's a sh-tty moment. It's a sh-tty moment when you know you're wrong and there's no excuses for your wrong behavior. At the end of the day, man, I just simply gotta do better."
Wife Eniko Parrish has since chosen to remain with Hart.
"I'm gonna go home, I'm gonna address it," he continued in December 2017.
"I'm gonna make my wife full aware of what's going on and the situation I have now put us in, and I'm hoping she has a heart to where she can forgive me and understand that this is not going to be a reoccurring thing and allow me to recover from my f-cking massive mistake."
According to TMZ yesterday, Hart has been working with the district attorney for two years on this case.
He believes his friend (Jackson) totally screwed him over and he's been actively teaming with authorities any time they need his assistance, prompting some to wonder why he would do this if he did, indeed, play a role in the sex tape release.
We have no idea what really happened, though, of course.
Hart is currently recovering from a crash that left him with “major back injuries” when his Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road and landed in a ditch earlier this month.
The actor was discharged from the hospital last week after undergoing surgery and is recovering from his injuries in a rehabilitation facility.
