The FBI has identified a suspect in the extortion attempt against actor Kevin Hart, TMZ reports.
The suspect is accused of contacting the comedian and demanding a “multi-million dollar” sum to prevent the “sexual provocative” video that allegedly features the Hart from going public.
The video prompted Hart, 38, to admit to “a bad error of judgment” in an Instagram post in which he appeared to admit to cheating on his pregnant wife. Hart also said he was targeted by someone for “financial gain.”
The iPhone video shows a man believed to be Hart in a sexually provocative position with a woman at a club and later under the covers in a bedroom.
