Comedian Kevin Hart is being sued by a woman who claims she was "violently" struck by a member of the star's security detail.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, a woman named Carmen Marrero is suing Hart, along with his company Hartbeat Productions and an unknown security guard.
Marrero claims on January 9, 2019, she was walking on the sidewalk in New York when Hart was exiting a building and a group of fans gathered to surround him.
Marrero accuses Hart's security of assault and battery and claims he "violently contacted" her as she walked by.
The event in question was a screening of Hart's movie with Bryan Cranston, "The Upside." Marrero says she has suffered "serious injuries" and seeking unspecified damages.
The alleged incident also took place in the middle of the Academy Awards drama surrounding Hart after homophobic tweets from the comedian resurfaced and eventually cost him the hosting job.
The Blast reached out to reps for Hart, but have not yet heard back.
