Actress and model, Monica Sabbag is sueing Kevin Hart for alleged negligence, inflictions of emotional distress and invasion of privacy stemming from a 2017 sex tape between the two that leaked online.
During the time when the tape leaked, Sabbag did not plan to sue Hart or make claims against him, even announcing that she wanted to “join forces with Hart against the person who illegally recorded them.”
In the recent lawsuit filed, September 16, 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.” She is also suing Hart, as well as Marriott hotel operators, Blackstone and the Cosmopolitan, for “negligently or intentionally” allowing Jackson access to his hotel room.
“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.”
The new lawsuit was filed on the eve of the second anniversary of the video’s posting.
