THE IDENTITY OF THE MAN WHO TRIED TO EXTORT KEVIN HART HAS BEEN REVEALEDMay 4, 2018
Kevin Hart is brokenhearted!
Last summer, Kevin Hart broke the news via social media that he had made a mistake that was being used against him as blackmail. It was revealed later that mistake was cheating on his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, and the person extorting him was using the sex tape against him.
Kevin decided to get the police involved and the identity of the extortionist has now been revealed. It is none other than Kevin’s good friend Jonathan Todd Jackson.
The press release from the DA’s office states :
“Jackson is accused of trying to extort an undisclosed amount of money from Hart between Aug. 25 and Aug. 30, 2017. Jackson allegedly had a videotape of the actor with a woman in Las Vegas and then is accused of trying to sell the recording to numerous celebrity news websites, prosecutors said.”
Jonathan appeared alongside Kevin Hart in movies including Think Like A Man and the two had been good friends for 15 years. Apparently, Jonathan was even invited to Kevin’s bachelor party. Kevin has only addressed the situation via Twitter saying, “Mind blown…Hurt…at a lost for words and simply in complete disbelief at the moment. WOW”
