Kevin Hart shocked the world when he issued a public apology to his pregnant wife and two children before his sex tape was leaked and broke the internet. His world was turned upside down when it was revealed that it was someone he considered a friend that allegedly attempted to extort him.
Johnathan Jackson, an actor and (former) friend of Kevin, was revealed to be the perpetrator who filmed the actor while sleeping with a woman and then extorting him for millions of dollars.
Because his plan didn’t work, Johnathan doesn’t feel like he committed a crime.
A new report from TMZ claims: ‘Jackson claims he was contacted by a man who said he was a “Hollywood sex tape broker” and offered him $10k for the video. Jackson says he declined but began negotiation for a higher price … but they never struck a deal’
It went on to say that Johnathan is under the impression that the person who made the low blow offer is someone from Kevin’s camp and that they made up the extortion part of the story after he turned them down.
Jackson claims that he was simply a guy trying to legally sell a celebrity sex tape.
When it was revealed in May of last year that Johnathan was the culprit, Kevin reacted with a tweet that read: ‘Mind blown … Hurt … at a loss for words and simply in complete disbelief at the moment. WOW.’
Hart obviously cut off the actor that he knew for 15 years and tightened his circle even more. The Jumanji actor has gone back to being a man that’s all about family who hasn’t had a public cheating incident since.
The 40-year-old even incorporated the drama into his Netflix special titled Irresponsible where he takes full responsibility of messing up and learning from it.
