Kevin Hart says woman at center of ‘cheating’ video tried to extort him; FBI reportedly investigating

Comedian Kevin Hart posted a video on Saturday night and admitted to a “bad error in judgment” after a video surfaced of him, which, on surface at least, looked like he was cheating on his wife. Yet, the comedian made it known that he would not be extorted for financial gain by the woman who may have leaked the video, in an alleged attempt to expose him after he wouldn’t pay her.

Hart admitted in an Instagram post that he would rather fess up to mistakes before allowing someone to profit off of his bad judgement. The woman in question reportedly said that she wanted to “get paid” and “expose” Hart as a cheater, according to Page Six.

“But I’m also not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes and in this particular situation that was what was attempted. I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes,” Hart wrote.

Hart never explicitly said what the reported extortion by the unnamed woman involved, but TMZ exposed the woman’s comments, along with a photo of her. Not only did she accuse him of being a liar, but she apparently admitted she wanted to get paid $10 million for the actor’s reported indiscretion.

“The real reason Kevin Hart orchestrated the Texas Hurricane Relief Fund, this so-called good deed was done to get ahead as he knew this damaging footage was one click away from being exposed as the liar and cheater he is.  Kevin Hart was privy to me wanting to expose him as I have made countless attempts to expose this information to various blogs, in an attempt to also get paid.”

Yet, sources close to Hart indicated that his hurricane relief efforts didn’t have anything to do with the woman, and that he helped out of the kindness of his heart. Further, TMZ reports that the FBI has joined in to investigate the incident, although it’s unclear whether they’re investigating the woman or someone who recorded the incident.
