The woman featured in the Kevin Hart sex-extortion scandal has identified herself as Montia Sabbag. Recently, a sex tape was released, featuring comedian Kevin Hart and Montia Sabbag.
Here’s all we know so far:
1. They apparently met in August.
According to TMZ, Sabbag is 27, lives in Long Beach, CA and met Hart in Vegas back in August. According to Sabbag’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, she is a model and actress. According to Bloom, Sabbag “was briefly involved with Kevin Hart a month ago. Since that time, she has been the subject of false, vicious attacks on her character.”
2. There will be a press conference today, in which Sabbag gives details about Hart's alleged cheating.
TMZ alleged that Sabbag “lawyered up” after Hart’s legal team contacted her. The publication also alleged that Sabbag agreed to do a lie detector test if Hart paid her $420,000.
There will be a press conference held today, Wednesday, in which Bloom will give details. At that press conference, Bloom promises that she and Sabbag “will speak out … about the true facts of this situation, and will announce their next legal move.”
3. Kevin Hart has already made a public apology to his family on Instagram.
Before Sabbag came forward, Hart posted a video in which he revealed an alleged extortion attempt against him. The comedian said that someone was trying to make a “financial gain” from his mistake. He also apologized to his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, and his children in that clip.
4. According to TMZ, someone tried to get $15 million from one media outlet for the sex video.
TMZ reported that FBI agents might know who allegedly demanded money to not leak the video. Hart has reportedly been meeting with investigators so that they can catch the extortionist.
The sexually explicit video is four minutes and 47 seconds long and it allegedly shows Hart and Sabbag at a club and then in a bedroom. The latter part is sexually explicit.
5. Sources told PEOPLE that Hart’s wife is supporting her husband.
“She obviously knows about the cheating allegations. To her, Kevin is a great husband,” said the source. “Eniko is aware that Kevin has been accused of being a ladies’ man. She doesn’t care. He is her husband and he always comes home to her.
