The woman at the center of Kevin Hart’s sex-extortion video scandal has come forward in a press conference on Wednesday, defending herself with new details revealed by People: “I am not an extortionist. I had nothing to do with these recordings.”
Accompanied by her attorney, Lisa Bloom, Montia Sabbag, who is an actress and a model, wanted to set the record straight about her relationship with Hart, which allegedly started a month ago. Speaking for Sabbag, Bloom says:
“Montia is a crime victim. Someone apparently snuck cameras into Kevin Hart’s private hotel suite in Las Vegas and recorded bedroom images of the two of them."
“It is a crime to secretly put cameras in a private place like a hotel room. It is another crime to secretly record people in a private place. It is yet another crime to distribute those images. Montia is the victim of multiple felonies under state and federal laws.”
Bloom add that she wanted to find the person who is disseminating the video with her client and have them reprimanded.
“We invite Mr. Hart to join us in bringing the perpetrator to justice,” Bloom continued. “To the criminal who did this, I say you belong in prison and we are going to find you.”
Bloom also dismissed any reports that she was approaching by law enforcement who may be investigating the crime. She did note that they would be meeting with the proper authorities “immediately.”
“Montia and I are not asking for a cent from Kevin Hart. This is not about money,” she said. “We are not suing him. We are not making any claims against him. Kevin Hart appears to be the victim of this criminal, just as Montia is a victim of this criminal.”
