  • Kevin Hart’s alleged extortionist arrested and charged

Prosecutors have charged a Los Angeles man with extortion in connection with Philly-born comedian Kevin Hart's sex tape scandal from past year.

Jonathan Todd Jackson, who also goes by the name "Action Jackson", was charged Wednesday with one count of attempted extortion and one count of extortion by threatening letter.

The amount of money he tried to extort was not disclosed by the District Attorney's office.

Prosecutors accused Jackson, 41, of trying to get Hart to pay him an undisclosed amount of money between August 25 and August 30 for a videotape Jackson said he had of Hart with a woman in Las Vegas.

The man who allegedly has tried to extort comedian Kevin Hart for an alleged sex tape has been arrested.

The prosecutors said, Jonathan allegedly had a recording of Hart and a woman in Las Vegas.


Hart was in the spot light previous year when he was exposed for cheating on his then pregnant wife. His wife was pregnant with son Kenzo at the time.

"Montia and I are delighted that the alleged extortionist is being brought to justice", Bloom said on Twitter. And in doing that I know that I'm going to hurt the people closest to me, who've I talked to and apologised to, that would be my wife and my kids.

Attorney Lisa Bloom said a woman had a brief affair with Hart in August and someone illegally recorded intimate footage of the two of them. He is also set to be arraigned on Wednesday.

If convicted on both charges, Jackson faces a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Shortly after the charges were announced, Hart tweeted: "Mind blown.Hurt.at a lost for words and simply in complete disbelief at the moment".
