So now we all know who was trying to extort Kevin Hart. Remember when the video was leaked of Hart cheating on his wife with a woman in a Las Vegas Hotel? The woman said that she did not leak the video, and Hart and his teamed vowed that they would get to the bottom of it, and they did. It was Kevin Hart’s friend of more than 15 years! His name is Jonathan Todd Jackson.
Jackson has been charged with trying to extort money from Kevin Hart by threatening to release a video that was secretly recorded of Kev with the woman in Vegas. Prosecutors have charged Jackson with attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter. Jackson is in police custody on $100,000 bail after being arrested Monday. He even costarred in Hart’s 2014 film, Think Like a Man Too.
Hart took to Twitter and wrote, “Mind blown…Hurt…at a lost for words and simply in complete disbelief at the moment. WOW.”
Jackson faces up to four years in jail.
