Kevin Hart appeared to receive a stroke of good luck when his sex tape partner’s lawsuit accusing him of invasion of privacy was dismissed last month. But now, can exclusively report that the woman at the center of the alleged extortion scandal has officially refiled.

Court documents obtained from California District Court’s Central Division show that Montia Sabbag, 28, filed an amended complaint of the lawsuit on September 30 – just two weeks after her initial filing.

As reported, a judge dismissed the first complaint last month for “lack of subject matter jurisdiction” and for “lack of diversity jurisdiction.”

The amended complaint shows that Sabbag is still going after the comedian, his friend Jonathan Todd Jackson, the Cosmopolitan Hotel and others for a slew of charges including negligent infliction of emotional distress, intentional infliction of emotional distress and multiple counts of invasion of privacy.

As readers recall, Jackson was arrested and charged with extortion, but denied ever extorting Hart. Sabbag was also accused of being an extortionist, but she denied any involvement.

In Sabbag’s filing, she argues that 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.”

She furthered 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.” readers recall the funnyman first brought attention to the sex tape in an apology video to his wife Eniko Parrish – who was pregnant at the time of the cheating scandal. 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.”

Meanwhile, Hart is still on the mend from injuries he sustained in a car crash last month. He still has yet to comment on Sabbag’s lawsuit.
