Kevin confirms the video (and cheating) by issuing a public apology to his wife and children: “Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I’m not perfect and have never claimed to be …I love you all.”
Kevin Hart feels he was targeted in this scandal: In the video posted on his Instagram page, the actor and comedian said, “I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back and because of that I should make smart decisions.”
Initial reports claim the woman Kevin allegedly cheated with is Monique “MoMo” Gonzalez: MoMo is the same woman Kevin Hart was videotaped in a car with at 5 a.m. in Miami. He laughed off the cheating rumors in a post on social media.
MoMo addressed the drama on social media: Hours before Kevin posted his apology on social media MoMo posted, “The truth always comes to light.”
The extortionist has released a video: The person extorting Kevin Hart has released a video explaining why they are doing it. The video released by TMZ reads, “Between the dates of August 17-August 20…the weekend of his pregnant wife’s birthday, Kevin Hart was recklessly partying with my friends and I. Drinking, doing drugs and having sex with multiple women in Las Vegas Cosmopolitan Hotel.”
The video is NOT a sex tape: TMZ reports, “Kevin and the woman are engaged in ‘sexually suggestive’ conduct. We are told it is NOT a sex tape, but looks like it is a prelude to sex.”
The video recording is illegal: The video was reportedly recorded on an iPhone that was propped up on something in the room, which makes the recording illegal.
The FBI is involved: TMZ reports, “The FBI knows who the woman is who interacted with Kevin, and they either believe she is the one who made the money demand … or someone who got hold of the iPhone that recorded the encounter made the demand.”
Kevin Hart is being extorted for millions: The person(s) in possession of the video of Kevin were demanding he pays up to 8 figures to keep them from releasing it. In his apology video, Kevin said, “I’m not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes.”
Eniko Hart: Kevin’s wife, Eniko, who is 31 weeks pregnant with their first baby together, has gone radio silent after the scandal broke. The news comes one month after the couple celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary and Eniko accused Kevin’s ex-wife, Torrei Hart, of starting mistress rumors about her.
