Kevin Hart is completely “mind blown” after learning the man who tried to extort him over the release of his sex tape was a longtime friend of almost 15 years.

Via TMZ:

Jonathan Todd Jackson faces 2 felony counts — attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter.

Jackson is accused of trying to extort an undisclosed amount of money from Hart, in return for keeping the video secret … a video showing Hart with a woman in his hotel room in Vegas apparently having sex.

Jonathan, who goes by J.T. is an actor who has appeared in “S.W.A.T.,”  “Naked” and even in Kevin’s movie “Think Like a Man Too.”

When the news broke, Kevin tweeted:

It’s always your so-called friends….
