Kevin Hart’s sex tape partner didn’t know video existed, does not want money

Kevin Harts's sex tape partner Montia Sabbag says she's a crime victim herself!
The woman at the center of the Kevin Hart sex tape extortion scandal, Montia Sabbag, held a press conference with her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, yesterday. As you may recall, Bloom is the attorney who represented Quantasia Sharpton and the other unnamed plaintiffs in their civil lawsuit against Usher for allegedly exposing them to genital herpes without their consent. As we saw in her press conference with Sharpton, Bloom is extremely skilled at presenting her clients’ side of the story and making her case.

At the press conference yesterday, Sabbag opened with the fact that her photos and identity have been in the media and that lies have been written about her. She was clearly talking about TMZ, which claims she’s demanded large sums of money from Hart and that she works as a “traveling stripper.” Whether she does that or not, TMZ’s blurbs were seemingly written from Hart’s point of view and were meant to paint Sabbag as an opportunist and extortionist. Sabbag made the case that she’s as much of a victim as Hart and that she was not the one who leaked those videos. She said:

Sabbag: I am not an extortionist and I’m not a stripper
“I was involved with Kevin Hart a month ago. Since then my pictures and my name have been released with lies written about me. I am not an extortionist. I am not a stripper. I am a recording artist and an actress and I have not broken any laws. I have nothing to do with these recordings. I hired Lisa Bloom to protect my rights. I am truly sorry for any involvement I had in this.”

After that Bloom very clearly stated that Sabbag is a crime victim and that someone snuck the cameras in the Vegas suite. She emphasized that it’s a crime to put a camera in a private residence, that it’s a crime to record people without their knowledge and that it’s yet “another crime to disseminate those images.

Bloom: My client didn’t snow she was being recorded and is a victim
“Montia is therefore the victim of multiple felonies under state and federal law.”

Bloom also said that there’s no evidence that law enforcement have been investigating this, as TMZ has reported (although she didn’t use TMZ’s name). She stated that they’re going to the authorities to report this and hopefully start an investigation to ultimately find the person responsible.

Bloom: We are not asking for money from Kevin Hart
“Montia and I are not asking for a cent from Kevin Hart. This is not about money. We are not suing him. We are not making any claims against him. Any reports to the contrary are false. Kevin Hart appears to be the victim of this criminal just as Montia is the victim of this criminal”

Bloom: We will go to law enforcement to bring the perpetrator to justice
She added that they want Kevin Hart to join them in helping bring to justice the person who did this. She said “to those who are making malicious false statements about my client, Montia, do the right thing and stop.” If they don’t she insinuated that they would pursue legal action.

In the question and answer period, Bloom stated again that Sabbag is not demanding money. She confirmed the timeline of her client’s hookup with Kevin and said that she had seen the images online of Sabbag with Kevin Hart. Bloom and Sabbag will go to law enforcement and assist in the investigation but Bloom stated that Sabbag does not know who did this.

The video of the press conference is below. Again it’s powerful and very clearly states Sabbag’s case. As for why TMZ dragged Sabbag, Bloom told TMZ in an interview that Kevin Hart “reached out to [Sabbag] once to ask her if she was the extortionist and she said absolutely not and that was the end of it.” She said you can see Sabbag’s iPhone in some of the photos and that was the only device she had with her so it was “clearly not her” who made the recordings. They have a suspicion of who might have been behind the recordings, but she isn’t naming names.

So did Hart assume it was Sabbag and subsequently launch an attack against her in the media? Someone gave all that information to TMZ. It seems just like him to attack her. Good for her for getting a good lawyer and telling her side. That was smart and I believe that she’s not behind this.

Do you remember the article from E! yesterday that made it sound like Hart’s pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, was completely behind him whether she believed him or not? People has a new article with insider quotes stating Parrish isn’t going to leave Hart (of course she’s not) but that she “can’t trust him” and feels “let down.” They claim that she “has been hounded by the press, and is very upset. She is trying to stay healthy and enjoy her pregnancy, but the latest drama is too much.” No one deserves this however she got with Hart when he was married and she’s been in online arguments with Hart’s first wife about whether she was cheating with him. Now it’s happening to her at a time when she’s vulnerable and pregnant and that sucks for her.

    There were other people with them in that hotel room including a blonde woman so it’s possible one of them could have filmed them.
    Also a gossip blog on IG that has been posting other stories about Kevin cheating with multiple women has been deleted.The owner of the blog blames Kevin Hart.That blog also posted the sex tape on a backup page.All their pages have been deleted.

  2. Squiggisbig says:

    Good for her for lawyering up and clearing her name.

    I think Kevin Hart is just panicking and throwing out whatever half baked stories he thinks can salvage his clearly destroyed family man image.

  3. jugil1 says:

    Instead of women bashing one another, I just wish they supported each other more. Kevin & whomever did the illegal recording are the ones in the wrong, but of course the women were made out to be the perpetrators.

    • HK9 says:

      In this case, the woman bashing started with Eniko, who felt very comfortable attacking Kevin’s ex-wife on Instagram for her step-children (and the rest of the world) to see. Furthermore, there would be nothing for people to perpetrate if Kevin kept his little gremlin ass at home.

      Kevin forgot rule #1- if you’re going to turn cheating on your wife into a lifestyle, have your people confiscate phones before you begin. It will save you from being in messy situations like this.

    Isn’t she the one who said that she’s not the extortionist and would happily take a lie detector test to prove it… for $400,000?

    There’s nothing Lisa Bloom loves more than an opportunity to get in front of a camera.

    • BJ says:

      Lisa Bloom said she spoke to the lady’s former attorney and he said that is not true.Just because TMZ(Kevin Hart ) said that doesn’t mean it’s true.
      I find it interesting that she seems to be getting more backlash then Kevin.Kevin met some women four days after his first anniversary and had sex with her during the birthday weekend of his pregnant wife.They got married August 14.His wife’s birthday is August 18.He screwed this woman that weekend according to the sex tape.

    She can’t trust him?His wife feels let down? She got him while he was married. When did exactly was trust part of the deal of their marriage? I feel for her as a pregnant woman. She shouldn’t been in this predicament because of her husband wandering eyes. He’s a dog for cheating while his lawful side piece is expecting their first child. But what did she expect? Big weddings and a signature to “prove your love” doesn’t scream faithful.

  6. Susannah says:

    What’s going on with the usher story?…last I heard that quantasia woman said there was a sex tape to proof she was with him but than it turned out she lied

  7. Betsy says:

    That’s terrible for her. I wonder if it was a one-two punch of revenge pron for (against? about?) her and extortion for Kevin. Gross, anyway.

  8. Carol says:

    Kevin needs to keep it in his pants. That’s what he gets for stepping out on his wife.
