Kevin Hart’s cheating scandal just got a whole lot messier — and a lot of guys say he shouldn’t be blamed.
A woman released a video purportedly showing Hart cozying up to an unidentified suitor while another scene shows an unknown couple having sex, according to TMZ. The extortionist admits she distributed the clip in an attempt to get millions from Hart. She added he was “drinking, doing drugs and having sex with multiple women” at a Las Vegas hotel in August.
She juxtaposed the scandalous footage with Hart’s recent radio interviews chalking up his cheating to youth and explaining why he couldn’t do that again.

After indirectly denying he was unfaithful to his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish, Hart admitted his infidelity in an Instagram video.
“I’m not perfect,” he says. “I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form. And I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.”
Now, the FBI has launched an investigation and TMZ reported they’ve located the extortionist. The crime is often treated as a felony. If she is convicted, she can expect to lose her money, time or both. She could see fines up to $10,000 or have a sentence to up to 15 years in prison. If the extortion fails, which it could have since the woman has released the video for free, she could be on probation for at least 12 years, according to Criminal Defense Lawyer.
