There's another twist in the Kevin Hart cheating scandal


Los Angeles — On the heels of comedian Kevin Hart's apology video on Instagram about someone seeking financial gain from a "mistake" he made, a woman came forward on Wednesday saying she is the one in leaked footage and images and that she was "involved" with the box office star a month ago but is not an extortionist.

Montia Sabbag said that since images of her became public she has been the subject of lies.

"I am not an extortionist. I'm not a stripper. I'm a recording artist and an actress, and I have not broken any laws. I had nothing to do with these recordings," Sabbag said, adding that she was sorry for any involvement.

Her attorney, Lisa Bloom, said someone secretly placed cameras in Hart's Las Vegas hotel suite and recorded "bedroom images" of the pair and disseminated them.

"Montia is therefore the victim of multiple felonies under state and federal law," Bloom said.


The attorney added that Hart appeared to be a victim as well.

Bloom said there was no evidence that law enforcement was looking into the matter and she intended to report it to authorities immediately and demand a full investigation.

"Montia and I are not asking for a cent from Kevin Hart," the attorney said. "This is not about money. We are not suing him. We are not making any claims against him. Any reports to the contrary are false. Kevin Hart appears to be the victim of this criminal just as Montia is the victim of this criminal."

Hart publicly apologised to his pregnant wife and his kids on Saturday for what he described as a "bad error in judgment."

The comedian posted a video to Instagram in which he said he wasn't perfect and recently made poor decisions.

He said there were "no excuses" but added that someone was trying to seek financial gain over his mistakes, and he'd rather confess than let that happen.
