Kevin Hart and others are being sued for $60 million by a model who appeared in a sex tape with the comedian back in 2017.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, Montia Sabagg has claimed she was secretly recorded having sex with Kevin in a hotel room in Las Vegas.

The video was leaked online back in September 2017, and at the time, Kevin addressed the tape publicly and claimed he was being extorted.

Two years later, the 28-year-old has accused the comedian of allowing his friend, JT Jackson, to “set up a hidden video recording device” in the hotel room where they were filmed having sex.

In the 38-page complaint, Montia has alleged that Kevin “conspired” with Jackson “for the purpose of obtaining tremendous financial benefit for himself”.

The lawsuit claims Kevin wanted to attract “additional publicity and media attention,” and “increase his overall pop culture status.”

The news comes after Jackson was charged with attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter last year.

Jackson was accused of trying to sell the tape to various celebrity news websites, after Kevin allegedly refused to pay Jackson an undisclosed amount of money.

Jackson pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the case is still ongoing.
