Kevin Hart is firing back for the first time at the woman suing him over the release of their sex tape, calling her lawsuit “baseless”.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the comedian responded to the case brought by Montia Sabbag.
Sabbag filed a $60 million-dollar lawsuit against Hart, his former friend Jonathan Todd Jackson, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and a website named Fameoulous. The suit accused the defendants of working together to release a sex tape featuring Hart and Sabbag.
Sabbag recently asked the court for an extension of time to file a document. She claimed to be having settlement talks that were going well.
In newly filed docs, Hart wants Sabbag’s motion shut down. He says any settlement discussions were with other defendants. Hart says he didn’t participate in any talks with her. “As a factual matter, Defendant Hart was not a party to any such settlement discussions, and has had no recent communications with Plaintiff or Plaintiff’s counsel regarding settlement.”
He adds, “Plaintiff is improperly attempting to drag out the litigation in order to delay the inevitable determination that her claims are, in fact, baseless.”
