Kevin Hart Faces $60 Million Lawsuit Over 2017 Las Vegas Hotel Room Recording.



Kevin Hart faces a $60 million lawsuit after model and actress Montia Sabbag accused the comedian of negligence, infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy stemming from a 2017 incident, according to court documents obtained by USA TODAY.

Sabbag made headlines with Hart in September 2017 after a video of the two having sex in a Las Vegas hotel room was uploaded online. She denied speculation at the time that she was suing or extorting the comedian, announcing she wanted to join forces with him against the person who illegally recorded them.

“My pictures and my name have been released with lies written about me,” Sabbag told reporters in 2017. “I am not an extortionist. I am not a stripper. I am a recording artist and an actress and I have not broken any laws.”

In a new lawsuit filed Sept. 16, 2019, she accuses Jonathan Todd Jackson of secretly recording her “without her knowledge or consent, while she was engaged in private, consensual sexual relations with Hart,” according to the documents. Sabbag also is suing Hart, as well as hotel operators Marriott, Blackstone and the Cosmopolitan, for “negligently or intentionally” allowing Jackson access to his hotel room. 

USA TODAY has reached out to Hart’s representatives and Sabbag’s lawyer for comment.

The new lawsuit was filed on the eve of the second anniversary of the video’s posting. 

Sabbag alleges in the lawsuit that she believes Hart worked with Jackson to record her in an attempt to gain publicity for his stand-up comedy “Irresponsible Tour,” which began days before the video went public and continued through 2018. 

Lawyer Lisa Bloom, who represented Sabbag in 2017, referred to Hart as a victim at the time, telling reporters they did not plan to sue Hart or make claims against him.

Hart publicly apologized at the time to his wife Eniko and children Heaven, now 14, and Hendrix, now 11. The couple has since welcomed Kenzo, 1. 

“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,” he said. “And I made a bad error in judgment 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 I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.”

Hart is currently recovering from a major back injury after his vintage muscle car crashed in Malibu earlier this month. Eniko Hart told TMZ outside the hospital shortly after the accident that he was “going to be just fine.”

LOUD AND CLEAR TOUR: Comedian Trevor Noah Sells-Out Madison Square Garden.



JOHANNESBURG - This past weekend, South African comedian and host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, put on a show at New York's Madison Square Garden as part of his "Loud and Clear" tour. Noah's show was completely sold out, the first time an African has ever achieved this. He now joins the exclusive list of Hollywood A-list comedians such as Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Kevin Hart, who have all previously sold out their own shows at Madison Square Garden.

Over the past two weeks, South Africans have had a lot to celebrate. From the Springboks winning the 2019 Rugby World CupSho Madjozi and John Cena hanging out on the Kelly Clarkson Show to Noah's recent history-making, these achievements have been important to the many people living in a country plagued by gender-based violence, corruption, rising poverty and unemployment as well as widening inequality.

Taking to social media, Noah thanked his fans for coming out and told them he hadn't wanted the memorable night to end.

The "son of the soil", as he is affectionately known, has been making major career moves since taking over from previous host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart. Noah's memoir Born a Crime became an international bestseller, has been awarded countless awards including several NAACP Image Awards, an Emmy nomination and according to Forbes, is now the fourth highest paid comedian in the world. And of course, who can forget his unforgettable Xhosa speech at the Oscars earlier this year?

About Madison Square Garden:

Before the current day Madison Square Garden, which was completed in 1968, there was actually three Madison Square Garden’s that were open to attract the people of New York and around the world to enjoy various sports, concerts and other forms of entertainment.

According to a TLTC Blog, one of the main reasons that Madison Square Garden is widely recognized as the world’s most famous arena is because of its location, in the middle of Manhattan. Madison Square Garden was also constructed on top of Pennsylvania Station, with service from the Long Island Rail Road and the emergence of New Jersey Transit, it made Madison Square Garden that much accessible to people in the tri-state area.
