Kevin Hart is off the hook for $60 million after a judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the woman in Hart's hotel room sex tape extortion scandal.
Montia Sabbag sued Hart for emotional distress and invasion of privacy. She claimed he conspired with a friend to conceal a video camera in the hotel room for free publicity.
Sabbag also sued Hart's friend, Jonathan Jackson, and gossip blogger Fameolous.
But RadarOnline.com reports exclusively that a judge dismissed the complaint for "lack of subject matter jurisdiction" and for "lack of diversity jurisdiction."
Sabbag claimed Hart and Jackson set her up by installing cameras "without her knowledge or consent, while she was engaged in private, consensual sexual relations" with the 40-year-old comedian.
But the judge found that the lawsuit did not properly identify Fameolous as a LLC (limited liability company), and therefore the court does not have jurisdiction.
"Because the Complaint alleges the citizenship of Defendant Fameolous, Ent LLC as if it were a corporation, rather than a limited liability company, the Complaint has not properly alleged the citizenship of that party," the court papers read, according to Radar. "As a result, Plaintiff's allegations are not sufficient to invoke this Court's diversity jurisdiction."
Sabbag has until September 30, 2019 to file a First Amended Complaint with Federal Court to show that the lawsuit meets the requirements for subject matter or diversity jurisdiction.
Hart is still recovering at home after undergoing surgery to repair serious back injuries he suffered in a car crash on Sept. 1. He also spent a week in a rehab facility.
Remember when Kevin Hart was filmed having intimate relations in a hotel room with a woman who wasn't his wife, and we thought the whole thing was a publicity stunt? We were right.
Hart's dirt is being exposed now that he is laid up in a rehab facility after breaking his back in three places in a serious car crash on Sept. 1.
Montia Sabbag, the woman in Hart's hotel room sex tape, is suing him for $60 million, claiming he and another man installed a camera in a Las Vegas hotel room to boost publicity for his comedy tour.
The lawsuit alleges that Hart and his former friend J.T. Jackson, who was arrested and charged with extortion, set her up for publicity.
Hart himself revealed the extramarital activity by "apologizing" publicly to his wife, Eniko Parrish-Hart, for cheating on her.
"I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did," Hart said in a video on his Instagram account.
A few blogs then accused Hart of staging what seemed to be an obvious publicity stunt.
But Sabbag came forward to say Hart, 40, was innocent and he was not aware of the video tape in advance.
She also said she didn't want money from him.
Now she claims Hart and Jackson set her up by installing cameras "without her knowledge or consent, while she was engaged in private, consensual sexual relations" with the comedian.
But Hart's lawyers say she tried to extort him for "six figures" prior to filing her lawsuit.
The woman behind Kevin Hart's cheating scandal retained celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom. Bloom held a news conference on Wednesday in Los Angeles, where Montia Sabbag acknowledged she had "an intimate relationship" with the diminutive comedian.
