Kevin Hart

The FBI is reportedly investigating the woman who attempted to blackmail Kevin Hart. The woman in question allegedly demanded an eight-figure sum to stay quiet or else she would release a sexually suggestive videotape starring herself and a man who resembles the actor. Hart apologized to his pregnant wife for making “a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did.” Reps for the actor confirmed someone tried to set Kevin up “in a failed extortion attempt” but didn’t provide more details.
