FBI reportedly identifies suspect in Kevin Hart extortion scandal




The FBI has tracked down a suspect in the extortion attempt against Kevin Hart that forced the comedian to air his dirty laundry, TMZ reports.


Law enforcement has reportedly identified the woman who contacted the “Jumanji” actor and demanded a “multi-million dollar” sum in order to keep a “sexually provocative” video potentially featuring the star out of the public eye.


Hart, 38, fessed up to a “bad error of judgment” in an emotional Instagram post Saturday night. In the video, he seemed to admit to cheating on his pregnant wife, and explained that he was being targeted by someone for “financial gain” due to his mistakes.



TMZ reports that the video — shot on an iPhone — features a man thought to be Hart getting cozy with a woman at a club, and later, in a bedroom.


Hart is never visible in the footage, and the outlet is clear that it is not a sex tape, but the clip does feature a creaking bed frame and slapping, according to sources that have seen it.


However, the gossip site claims that the woman in the video has previously hooked up with an unidentified TV star, and the man in the footage could possibly be him, not Hart.


Either way, Hart said Saturday that he’d rather “fess up to (his) mistakes,” and admitted that there were no excuses for his behavior.


The “Get Hard” actor married Eniko Parrish in August 2016, and she is about 31 weeks pregnant with the couple’s first child. Hart has two children with his ex wife Torrei Hart.
