The sex tape lawsuit against Kevin Hart was served to the security guard at the entrance of his gated community, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Montia Sabbag, the woman in the tape, employed someone to serve the comedian at his home in Calabasas.
But when he arrived, he noticed it was a gated community being protected by security person Timothy Williams. He explained his situation to the guard for information on how to proceed.
"I informed Williams that I was a process server, showed him my license, and let him know that I was at the community to serve Hart. 8. Upon informing Williams of this Williams radioed to Hart’s residence and I heard confirmation that Williams was to accept service on behalf of Hart," the process server explained.
As Radar reported, Sabbag, 28, refiled her lawsuit against Hart, his friend Jonathan Todd Jackson, the Cosmopolitan Hotel after her initial suit was dismissed for “lack of subject matter jurisdiction” and for “lack of diversity jurisdiction.”
Readers know she sued Hart, 40, for for alleged intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and invasion of privacy amid an alleged sex extort scandal.
Jackson was arrested and charged with extortion, but denied ever extorting Hart.
Sabbag, who was initially thought to be the extortionist, claimed she was the victim as she alleged Hart “negligently or intentionally authorized, allowed and otherwise permitted Jackson access to Hart’s hotel room suite at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and breached their duty of care to M Sabbag.”
The aspiring actress continued that Jackson caused her to be “secretly videotaped without her knowledge or consent, while she was engaged in private, consensual sexual relationships with Hart in Hart’s private bedroom suite at the Cosmopolitan.”
She said the incident was all a setup on Hart’s part to “promote Hart’s Irresponsible Tour, which was a record-breaking comedy and to increase his overall pop culture status.”
Radar readers recall the comedian brought attention to the sex tape when he publicly apologized to his wife Eniko Parrish for cheating on her while she was pregnant. Hart said, “I’m guilty, regardless of how it happened and what was involved, the s**t that I can’t talk about, I’m guilty. I’m wrong.”
During that time, Hart also claimed in an Instagram video that someone was trying to extort him over the sex tape.
