It’s safe to say that Kevin Hart’s personal life has been in the forefront of the news in recent time. After In Touch exclusively reported that his extortionist demanded $15 million to keep their sex tape private, 27-year-old Montia Sabbag came forward as the woman who was in the tape. Back in September, she held a press conference in which she confronted the claims that she was trying to get money from the famous comedian in exchange for the video.

Who is Kevin Hart’s mistress?

At the press conference, Montia confirmed that she had had sex with Kevin back in August. “I was involved with Kevin Hart a month ago,” she said in mid-September. “Since then, my pictures and my name have been released with lies written about me.” Her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, took the stand as well. “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,” she said.

She claims she had no part in an extortion plot.

“I’m not an extortionist, I’m not a stripper,”  she said at the press conference. “I have not broken any laws. I had nothing to do with these recordings.” Montia’s lawyer affirmed that they were not asking for money.

“Montia and I are not asking for a cent from Kevin Hart. This is not about money,” Lisa said. “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 a victim of this criminal.”

She is an aspiring actress and singer.

At the conference, Montia denied claims that she was a stripper and said that she identified as a recording artist and an actress. She has no film credits yet. TMZ first reported that Montia was a “traveling stripper.”
