Sabbag’s case had previously been dismissed about a technical issue with the filing, but she has since amended and refiled the complaint. The lawsuit claims that while having consensual sex with Hart in a Las Vegas hotel in 2017, the sexual act was being filmed, unbeknownst to Sabbag. It further explains that the filming was done by an associate of Hart’s, J.T. Jackson, who was seeking publicity for his upcoming comedy tour. Jackson was later charged with extortion over the incident, with Hart claiming that he was also a victim.
Hart discussed the ordeal in his recent Netflix docuseries, describing the moment as the “lowest moment” of his life. His wife, Eniko, revealed that she learned about the sexual encounter via an Instagram direct message.
“I don’t know who it was, sent me an edited video of Kevin and another woman,” she said. “I was pregnant at the time. I was about seven, eight months pregnant, I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately I just lost it.”
Hart and his family are expecting a baby.
